Watched Derren Brown here and its a great venue, we were lucky enough to be sat near the stage in the stalls. What a beautiful venue, its ornate and historic and comfortable. The evening was excellent and there is plenty of room when sat down.

This place is tiny compared the the big arenas we have now but the performance you see seems so much more personal. People tend to go to see the performer, not to scream and shout over everything.

This is still one of the best venues in Newcastle and a lovely old building as well. The seats are a little small but the atmosphere for any event is unbeatable.

If you are here then to the North you have the main shopping area of Newcastle City Centre (check out Eldon Square) and Grey Street to the South which takes you down to the quayside.

When to see Sally Morgan with family recently. We had quite good seats, but i suppose from the size of the room, any seat wouldve been fine. However, if you are on the larger side, i wouldnt recommend... The seats are quite old, small and clisde together. A few people got up to go to the toilet during the performance... More

Our absolute favourite of venues, so cosy and quant, just the right size which adds to making it more personal than the bigger arena type venues. Let's keep supporting this venue.

Have seen many bands over the years and although it now loses out to bigger venues it has history and memories. Returned to view a show that invoked present and past experiences
