The theatre was built in 1867 by industrialist and politician, Joseph Cowen. The Grade I listed building is a unique creation of that era. With its lavish auditorium, outstanding acoustics and understage machinery, the Tyne Theatre produced entertainment that amazed the audiences of the time and brought them back asking for more.
The one hour tour of the building will explore all areas, including the understage, backstage and many other secret areas never seen on a normal visit. Your tour guide will reveal the theatre’s fascinating history, and highlight tales of its stars and even its ghosts.
