The Glasshouse, formerly known as The Sage Gateshead, is an international home for music and musical discovery. It houses two main stages of acoustic excellence, a 26-room music education centre, a music information resource centre, four bars, a brasserie and a cafe.

All kinds of music can be heard here including world, rock, pop, classical, acoustic, indie, country, folk, jazz, electronic and dance music, and its own orchestra Northern Sinfonia is at the heart of The Glasshouse International Centre for Music's classical programme.

The Glasshouse is the hub for a superb music Learning and Participation programme delivered across the whole of the North East and Cumbria, and offers a wide range of opportunities to explore and create all kinds of music, for people of all ages at every level of ability and experience.

The building itself is spectacular and entry is free, so pop in and have a look around for great views of the Quayside.
