xNorthern Stage (formerly Newcastle Playhouse) is at the north end of Newcastle City Centre. The theatre is still where it has been for the last 40 years; it's just a bit more hidden. See the How To Find Us section for more details.
Facing onto Newcastle University's student building, and crowned by local artist Cath Campbell's thrilling installation, Escapology, Northern Stage has an exciting new frontage, following a redevelopment in 2006. With a glass wall running the full length of the building, the foyer provides a fantastically light and welcoming reception for all our audiences and visitors.
The building has three performance spaces, two bars and simple and open access for visitors, audiences and performers. The doors are open from 10am every day except Sunday, so that people can drop in and buy tickets. The restaurant opens for breakfast from 10am and food is served until 9pm. The bar is open til 11pm and often later on performance nights.
We hope our all of our audiences find it a welcoming, exciting, relaxing and sometimes exhilarating place to come to. We look forward to seeing you soon.
