Newcastle Theatre Royal has been voted the most welcoming Theatre in the UK
Over the past two months, the country has been voting vigorously to decide which Theatre is the 'Most Welcoming in the UK'.  Last week we were shortlisted as North East winner, and yesterday it was announced we have won the top award!
The My Theatre Matters! UK’s Most Welcoming Theatre Award in association with Smooth Radio is one of the most coveted of the UK Theatre Awards, and over 256 theatres of all sizes entered.  Voting is done entirely by the public and over 40,000 votes were cast for theatres up and down the country – the most since the award was created. 
 Last Monday, we also won Receiving Venue Team of the Year in the prestigious Technical Theatre Awards (TTA) which recognises the staff who work behind the scenes and highlights the excellence of one venue which stands out above all others.
A HUGE thank you to you - our supporters, fans and loyal audiences - for voting for us.  We are honoured and humbled to have won these prestigious awards.

We will be carrying out essential website maintenance this evening (8 Sep) between 8pm & 8.30pm, and online booking will not be possible during this time. Our online booking system will be working as normal again from 8.30pm tonight. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact our Box Office Team who will be happy to help on 08448 11 21 21.
