Northern Stage is one of my favourite theatres in Newcastle. A registered charity, the theatre produces original work and hosts touring productions. There are 700 seats in total and shows here are often contemporary and really make you think. Northern Stage is inclusive and all are welcome.

10 Things To Do In Ouseburn


Ouseburn is pretty much my favourite area of Newcastle. With a few cracking pubs, a handful of fantastic restaurants and lots to see and do, there's a reason the area is a bit of a hot spot.

Hatton Gallery Newcastle University - What's On

The Hatton Gallery is located inside of Newcastle University. It's well-signposted on campus and not far from Northern Stage. The opening hours are Monday  - Saturday 10am-5pm (closed Sundays). The gallery is very close to the Great North Museum and Northern Stage - it's a good idea to combine a visit with these places and make a day of it.
