Come and join us for a unique exhibition celebrating 45 years of The Hexagon. We will be displaying a selection of rarely seen items from the archives, and take you behind the scenes to find out more about this amazing venue.

The Hexabition will take you backstage at the Hexagon to explore just some of the many incredible artists that have appeared here . There will be highlights from the last 45 years, a unique chance to search the archives and browse through posters and brochures going back to the 1970's. There will be interactive displays, exclusive Hex45 Merch, activities and refreshments served throughout the day.

You can drop in anytime between 10am & 4pm to browse through our archive materials - no need to book. 

We also have other events taking place in The Hexagon, which do need to be booked in advance. See below for more details.
