Cultural things to do in Newcastle - Theatre Royal

If you are planning a weekend away in Newcastle, the Rosebery, a hotel in Jesmond, is an ideal place to stay, while you go and explore all of the things to do in Newcastle. Our Jesmond Bed and Breakfast, whilst only being 5 minutes away from Newcastle city centre, offers guests a tranquil and quiet retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. We have free, unrestricted parking, which is a rarity in Newcastle and we have good access links to the night-life, shopping and culture that the city has to offer.

The Rosebery, our guest house in Newcastle, has individually styled bedrooms, statement beds, feature wallpapers and bespoke furniture, hand picked for each guest bedroom and offers guests a charming and fun environment to stay in. So get yourself fully ensconced in the Rosebery, get unpacked and take a sip of that complementary chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Now, what do we recommend you do? Well, there are a number of fabulous events taking place in Newcastle from now up until Christmas, across the several theatres we have within a 3-mile radius of the city centre.

If you are interested in going to the theatre, then the fabulous, beautifully restored Theatre Royal will be right up your street. With its stunning interior and range of plays and shows on, including shows like the Full Monty, to kids shows like Three Little Pigs, to the Ballet and Opera; a whole range of shows to suit all ages. The Theatre Royal can easily be accessed by the number 38 bus, door to door, from the Rosebery, a great place to stay in Newcastle when you’re wanting to explore the best of the North East.

There is also the Live Theatre, which is a contemporary working theatre, which not only produces play and shows but also has classes running throughout the year, including writing classes. It also has debates, discussion groups, live Music, Stand-up Comedy, Poetry and beatbox workshops. There is such a range of diversity when it comes to what’s on at the Live Theatre, which proves it is a contemporary alternative to the Theatre Royal. If you are looking to perform at the Live Theatre, the Rosebery does offer discounted rates for theatre groups and the like. As we like to support independent businesses and community theatres.

There is, of course, the People’s Theatre, a stone’s throw from the Rosebery, a hotel in Jesmond. The People’s Theatre is a superb community-based theatre, with productions like Gregory’s Girl, and there are frequently visiting companies, which also put on their own productions. For any guest staying at the Rosebery, hotel accommodation in Newcastle, we offer discounted rates. You can walk in just under 10 minutes door to door, how brilliant is that!?

It is now located in a bespoke newly built structure, next to the Civic Centre, at Haymarket, a 15-minute walk from the Hotel.
