Welcome to Theatre Royal,
Newcastle upon Tyne

Welcome to the finest drama, the brightest West End musicals, the cream of the comedy circuit, award winning ballet and dance, family friendly shows, sensational opera – and (we think) the best Pantomime in the country!

Welcome to one of the finest and most historic theatres in the UK, built in 1837 and, following a devastating fire, reconstructed in 1901, a Grade 1 listed landmark!

Welcome to the warmest of welcomes – 405,000 people a year can’t be wrong!

Welcome to the Theatre Royal for inspiration and entertainment!

The New Short History of the Theatre Royal, richly illustrated in full colour, is now on sale online click here!
