Hire Newcastle City Hall

The City Hall was opened in 1927 and in its colourful history has hosted nearly every major British orchestra and almost every rock and pop “great”. Throughout the decades, the City Hall maintained its position as one of the best and most used 2000 seated venues in the country and one of many artists’ favourite gigs. Bruce Springsteen rates the City Hall show in 1981 as one of his three best shows and both Dire Straits and Elton John insisted on starting world tours in the Hall.

As well as music the City Hall has a tremendous reputation for comedy and has seen multiple sell out shows by the likes of Billy Connolly, Little Britain, Jimmy Carr, Al Murray, Frankie Boyle and many more.
