Newcastle Civic Centre


The Civic Centre is a central landmark in the heart of the regional capital, Newcastle upon Tyne. Easily accessible by all major motorway links, we are just five minutes from Newcastle Central Station and only fifteen minutes from Newcastle International Airport.

In days gone by, council meetings were heralded by the shouts of the Town Crier and the peal of his bell, while several huge barrels of tar along the front of the building would be lit to draw the crowds to the hearings. So when The Civic Centre first opened in 1968, every step was taken to ensure that these traditions were incorporated into its cutting-edge design.

That’s why today, nine huge flambeaux still span the entrance to this beautifully designed building and can be lit on demand for any occasion. Combine this with the ringing of the 25 bells of the carillon to mark the start of your event, and you create the grandest of entrances for the occasion.

In fact, it’s this combination of our rich history, long-lasting traditions, and authentic modernist architecture that bring any functions to life, making The Civic Centre a true modern classic and a venue quite unlike any other.

So pass through the shadow of the magnificent bronze casting of the River God Tyne, and into the most prestigious building in the city for a truly unforgettable red carpet experience.
