“You’re unlikely to have ever had a night at the theatre quite like this before.” – Barbara Hodgson, The Chronicle.


From the team who brought “Hitler’s Headquarters” to the Victoria Tunnel, and who unearthed the secrets of Newcastle’s Castle and the doomed Geordie witches in “WYTCH”, now bring a celebration, in the form of a new, high tech, exploration of The Tyne Theatre’s one hundred and fiftieth anniversary.

Their history is in your hands…

In 1867 the “North’s La Scala”, The Tyne Theatre, opened its doors for the first time and has housed countless Stars and Starlets across the years, as well as triumphing in times of darkness and standing tall as the only original working Victorian Theatre in the country.

Aptly named, “1867” will be a multi-sensory experience for each limited audience, anchoring the sights, sounds and smells of the building, all whilst discovering new paths you never knew were there. Cheer for Tosca, escape the 1985 fire, search for lost treasures and mingle with theatre ghosts.

“The way in which I was able to leave modern life at the door and become a part of the past was a unique and liberating experience”.

“1867” opens on September 11th and runs until the 17th with two shows every day at 2:30pm and 7:30pm and is approximately 80 minutes long. All tickets are £20.
