The Grade 1 listed Theatre was built in 1867 by industrialist and politician Joseph Cowen who envisioned a Theatre for everyone during a time of heavy industry when life was hard. The warmth, light and escapism of the Theatre answered a major need for working people. Over 150 years later, the Tyne Theatre & Opera House continues to hold Cowen's vision of a Theatre for everyone at the heart of their ethos.
