Northern Stage's three performance spaces, Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3, can be hired by amateur and community theatre and drama groups and societies wanting to stage a production

The groups and societies, universities, schools and colleges who hire Northern Stage, many of whom have been coming back year after year, say there's nothing like preparing and performing in a professional venue to ensure their production achieves its full potential.

Performing or contributing to a production at Northern Stage has been a genuinely life-affirming experience for many thousands of amateur actors, directors and behind the scenes contributors, many of whom are young people from Newcastle and the region.

With the resources and expertise of one of the UK's leading producing theatre companys, Northern Stage is uniquely placed to support your production to the highest standard.

Our three auditoria mean we can support productions ranging from intimate performances in Stage 3 right up to an audience of 447 in our main Stage 1 theatre.

For further information also see our Venue Hire Brochure.

Interested in booking?

If you are interested in booking please get in touch providing relevant information about the production you are planning.

Please note we are unable to consider theatrical hires where the title has not yet been decided. We will also require a level of detail about your organisation and style of presentation to ensure your production is suitable for our venue.

For enquiries in respect of professional productions / tours please contact the Artistic Planning team as opposed to Hires.

If your hire event at Northern Stage includes a charity fundraising dimension please advise us of this at the time of your enquiry. Northern Stage's permission is necessary and our status as a registered charity means we will need to be sure any plans don't conflict with Northern Stage's current or planned fundraising campaigns.
