Each year The Customs House is taken over by emerging artists and arts professionals aged up to 25 years of age for a week of theatre, cinema, music, dance, poetry, hip hop and visual art.
This year The Takeover is possible thanks to the generous support of The Scottish Power Foundation, W A Hanley Fund, The Barbour Trust, and The Community Foundation, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.
The Takeover runs throughout the May half-term with an exciting line-up of events, competitions, films and performances, for young people aged 25 and under. Our wonderful Takeover Team have been working hard to pull together this year’s Takeover programme and we are thrilled to be able to share what will be happening during the Takeover 2018…
Booking now open, strictly first come, first served.
