Attraction details
Owner description: From its base on Newcastle’s quayside, Live Theatre produces work as varied and diverse as the audiences it engages with. To do this it:• Creates and performs new plays of world class quality• Finds and develops creative talent• Unlocks the potential of young people through theatre.Founded in 1973, the theatre was transformed in 2007 via a £5.5million redevelopment. The result is a beautifully restored and refurbished complex of five Grade II listed buildings with state-of-the-art facilities in a unique historical setting, including a 160 seat cabaret style theatre, a studio theatre, renovated rehearsal rooms, a series of dedicated writer’s rooms as well as a thriving café and bar. In 2013 Live Theatre celebrates 40 years of making plays. A special year-long relationship with Port of Tyne to support its 40th anniversary programme recognises Live Theatre’s own strong connections to the river, the Port and the trading heritage of the region.Live Theatre is grateful for the support of Arts Council England and Newcastle City Council.

We often go along to the Live Theatre and have never been disappointed by a performance. The relaxed atmosphere makes it a very special venue and I highly recommend it

“Brilliant nite out!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and good value for money. My partner and I went to see a show Cooking with Elvis which was fabulous. A really wonderful theatre which works hard to keep arts alive and kicking in the toon!

“Love live!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

I love Live Theatre and it never disappoints!

Most of the productions have strong links with the northeast so what better production to see while visiting!

They do great ticket deals and even if you don't get a deal the seats are affordable.

“There's Nothing to Match it”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This place is is a complete one off. The atmosphere is superb as is the place itself. If it's a small, intimate theatre you're after then look no further as there is nothing better! No matter which seats you choose the view is good and the cabaret seating is a nice touch although I would not pay extra for them as the normal seats are more comfortable.
