What's on at the theatre in NewcastleGateshead?

If you love theatre. If you're passionate about unravelling untold stories, why not take in a theatre show at one of NewcastleGateshead’s excellent venues?

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. 

Make a trip to the theatre part of your night out in NewcastleGateshead. Many restaurants including Dabbawal, Pleased to Meet You, McKenna’s at Northern Stage and Pizza Punks offer a tasty pre-theatre menu to get you ready for the show.

During the warmer months and long, light evenings of summer, enjoy the sophistication of outdoor theatre in the atmospheric surrounding of Jesmond Dene and Gibside National Trust.

Visitors looking for parking near the theatres in Newcastle can benefit from the city’s Alive After Five scheme which means parking is free in certain Newcastle car parks after 5pm every day. Both Monument and Haymarket Metro stations are in easy walking distance of the theatres and Sunderland Empire can also be easily accessed on the metro.
