A lovely atmospheric old theatre. What a difference from the old Stoll we can remember! Geordie The Musical was amazing; uplifting and nostalgic, funny and sad with memories of a time gone by. Hope the show returns.

Geordie The Musical (14/10/17) - BRILLIANT
Watched this Friday evening 13th, Absolutely brilliant, very entertaining the whole way through with audience participation ,clapping and singing their way through Geordie classics, the finale was fantastic audience joined in with the Blaydon Races Coming from London I had a few problems with the dialect but it did not diminish the musical in anyway. The only down part was the uncomfortable seating .My husband(6ft2in)was almost bent I half trying to accommodate his legs however when we asked for some help it was forthcoming immediately, staff placed a chair for him near the stage front. I was booked in for wheelchair space but found it very crushed and was placed in what I was told is the fire exit lane. We would visit the show again but unfortunately I dont think we can visit the Tyne Theatre again unless wheelchair space and seating is improved.The staff were helpful and friendly and tried to help us with limited choice of how they could improve the seating for us.
