Stage Space


Thanks to funding from Biffa Award, we have added an exciting new addition to our facilities. Stage Space, which was officially opened on Monday, 29th May 2023 by Mayor of South Tyneside Cllr John McCabe, is an interactive theatre experience designed for under 11s.

Children can immerse themselves in the world of theatre by selecting one of the many costumes available, and take to the mini stage area, where they can perform for their adoring audience (or their grown-ups can just take some lovely photos).

Working with local software company SOFICUS, we have developed four bespoke digital games, which are designed to promote learning and creativity.

Stage Space will be open between 10am and 1pm, Tuesday to Sunday*. Entry is free, however you will need to book a place for each member of your party at our Box Office.

*Please note that this may change due to performances within the theatre, which will result in Stage Space being closed.
