Live Theatre is recognised as one of the great new writing theatres on the international stage. It offers everything from world class theatre, stand-up comedy and live music in its beautiful theatre located on Newcastle's vibrant Quayside. Its quirky historic spaces made from five Grade II listed buildings joined together to create a unique atmosphere with an intimate feel.

The complex of beautifully restored Grade II listed buildings with state-of-the-art facilities, include a 160 seat cabaret style theatre, a studio theatre, renovated rehearsal rooms, dedicated writers rooms as well as a thriving cafe bar and pub. A creative, outdoor public performance space and gardens adjoins the Quayside theatre for additional opportunity for immersive theatre.

Live Theatre produces work as varied and diverse as the audiences it engages with. Writer Lee Hall whose plays Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters were first produced at Live Theatre calls it British Theatre's best kept secret. As well as championing the art of writing for the stage by producing and presenting new plays, Live Theatre unlocks the potential of young people and finds and nurtures creative talent.

Proper food and proper ale is served in their award-winning pub, The Broad Chare, next door and adjoining wine-bar cafe, St Vincent which is the ideal place for pre and post theatre meals.
