The Common Room is a unique heritage venue in the centre of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, formed to lead the restoration of Neville Hall (previously known as The Mining Institute) and home of The North of England Institute of Mining & Mechanical Engineers.

The historic building, which underwent major conservation work and reopened to the public in 2021, celebrates the North East's engineering history through education and engagement, with a vision to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers. Watch this space for a range of innovative exhibitions, events and activities in the newly developed venue.

Located in the centre of Newcastle, the spectacular Grade II* listed building is a versatile venue suitable for staging a broad range of events including weddings and gigs.

Drop into 5 | Quarter their swanky cafe and bar area as part of your night out in Newcastle or take in the heritage of the building with a wander through its renovated rooms before enjoying a sandwich and cup of coffee in the intimate and cosy bar area.

The conservation project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
