We are a Charity

Help us preserve the Tyne Theatre & Opera House.

It’s a joy and a privilege to be able to protect our beautiful theatre, but the running costs of a Victorian venue such as ours are high. It costs tens of thousands of pounds just to keep our doors open every year and we face the constant challenge of operating a Grade I listed venue sustainably. We earn crucial income from ticket and bar sales, but with no regular Council support or other external funding, we still rely on donations and the kind support of our friends and audiences.

The Theatre is ­­owned by a registered charity, Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust. The business is operated by the Trust’s subsidiary company, Tyne Theatre & Opera House Ltd., with all profits donated to the Trust to maintain the building.
