Do you have a place for buggies / prams?

We have a buggy park at the back of the auditorium Stalls level, however space is limited so we ask that where possible, you leave your buggy at home.

Do you have booster seats?

We do have booster seats but they are limited – please ask a member of staff upon arrival. It’s also perfectly acceptable if you want to keep your child on your knee as long as they’re not obstructing the view for people behind you.


Tyne Theatre & Opera House stalls are fully accessible for wheelchair and mobile aid users with ramps in foyer/box office entrance and to Bistro Bar. Wheelchair user spaces are limited to four per show and are bookable directly with our box office team. Due to the age of the theatre we do not have a lift to higher levels.

There is an accessible toilet at the back of the Stalls, there are other toilet facilities on all levels.
