The Theatre Royal Newcastle opened on Drury Lane in 1788 and was granted its Royal licence by King George III. It soon established itself as one of England’s leading theatres, and still has a rich and varied programme of world-class drama, Opera, contemporary dance, musicals and comedy.
The Grade I listed Theatre today is both neo-classical monument and cultural engine, with an annual audience of 335,000 and over 380 performances each year.
