How to book

For more information on how we are responding to the Covid-19 crisis, please read our FAQs HERE 

Online bookings only; counter and phone sales are currently suspended in line with the See It Safely recommendations.

Our Box Office is open for outgoing calls only. You can contact us via email at and we will get back to you as soon as possible but please note we are working with a reduced staff and it may take us some time to respond.

Your tickets will be an email with a QR code. There is no additional charge for this and tickets do not need to be printed; simply present your phone to show the email to our staff when you arrive. Tickets will be emailed separately after your order confirmation. Please note, your tickets may not be issued immediately after booking and tickets for shows rescheduled from their original dates will only be issued closer to the time of the performance. If you accidently delete your ticket email you can log in to your account to retrieve it.

Terms and Conditions:
All details on this website are correct at time of publishing but the Theatre Royal Trust reserves the right to alter programme details without prior notice. Sales are subject to the Theatre Royal Trust’s terms and conditions.

Cautionary Advice:
There has been an increase recently in the number of secondary agent websites offering tickets for events at ‘premium’ prices.  Customers should be aware if they choose to book from these sellers they may pay vastly inflated prices. You are to buy only from ourselves, or officially approved agents of national tours. If in doubt please check with the Box Office as to which agents are officially approved and the face value of tickets offered for sale.  Newcastle Theatre Royal Trust does not accept any responsibility for tickets purchased from secondary agents.
