Theatre Royal Newcastle once again welcome powerful performances from Royal Shakespeare Company, while Tyne Theatre and Opera House have a diverse programme of theatre including opera, family-shows and talks.

For something a little different in the heart of the city visit Northern Stage, who have a fresh, varied and thought-provoking season of shows for children and adults alike. Or perhaps take a trip to the Live Theatre on Newcastle Quayside, where their strong regional identity is represented on the stage with a regular programme of original material. Watch out for one-off theatre from independent creative companies like November Club who produce exciting and immersive family-friendly theatre which often pops up in unusual places.
