If you love the theatre and old world charm you must visit when coming to Newcastle. Don’t let the outside fool you as once you are inside the theatre is truly beautiful.

A lovely theatre with plenty of atmosphere. We took friends to the St Phillips school presentation of Mary Poppins. This was an extraordinary performance by the pupils of St Phillips. A very professional presentation and thoroughly entertaining. Well done school.

The Civic impressed us with its over-the-top 1920's architecture in Spanish Baroque style. Super spacious and comfortable. We were entertained by the play 'Jasper Jones' Fun evening at one of the states grand theatres.
