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 folk-law. 

The festival will take place over an extend period 20th- 29th November, will consist of a self-led art trail that has been carefully designed to allow social bubbles to take in the art works whilst on a scenic walk around the headland. We have live stream premieres of film & dance screenings as well as downloadable activities.
