About

There are many theatres to choose from in Newcastle and Gateshead where visitors can enjoy the thrill of live performance; each telling a different story. One such venue in the heart of Newcastle city centre is Tyne Theatre and Opera House which not only puts on a great show but is situated in a truly historic building with its own story to tell and forms part of Newcastle's must-see cultural hotspots

The Tyne Theatre & Opera House offers the best in Music, Comedy and Theatre. The Newcastle theatre itself is a Grade 1 listed building rated in the top 4% of listed buildings by English Heritage and has been afforded a three star rating, the highest available, by the Theatres Trust, branded as "a very fine theatre of the highest theatrical and architectural quality". 

Tyne Theatre in Newcastle is known for being a go-to venue for world-class comedy - recent and upcoming acts include; James Acaster, Katherine Ryan, Sarah Millican, Joe Lycett, Dylan Moran and Ed Byrne.

Musicians from every genre have also performed on the Tyne Theatre stage. From film-composer John Carpenter, to folk singer Seth Lakeman, blue-eyed soul star Paul Young to Bowie producer Tony Visconti – there’s something for everyone.

As well as comedy and music, the theatre hosts a diverse programme including ‘in conversation’ discussions, popular theatre shows and musicals, ballet and opera productions, as well as a variety of other events.

Located in the centre of Newcastle, the Tyne Theatre & Opera House is easily accessible by the city's varied public transport systems. There is a choice of off-street parking nearby and a wealth of restaurants, shops, hotels and local amenities.

Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust is the freehold owner of the theatre and they continue to work on refurbishing, restoring and preserving the Grade 1 Listed building – with a focus on the auditorium and Victorian stage machinery – to ensure it can be enjoyed by future generations.
