About Wintertide Festival

‘Creating with the community’

Wintertide is an independent community festival which takes place in and around the streets on the Hartlepool Headland, a coastal town steeped in history, heritage, culture and folklore. 

The festival took place over an extend period 20th- 29th November, consisting of a self-led art trail, carefully designed to allow social bubbles to take in the art works whilst on a scenic walk around the headland. The live film & dance screenings are now available to view on our Exhibitions page as well as downloadable activities to try.
