Newcastle theatre building Grey Street
The theatre was designed by local architects John and Benjamin Green as part of Richard Grainger’s grand design for the centre of Newcastle, and opened in 1837. The Theatre Royal closed on 14 March 2011 due to a major restoration of the auditorium, box office, bars and restaurant.

The restoration restored the theatre to the original 1901 Frank Matcham Edwardian interior. The whole interior was stripped apart from the original plasterwork which was carefully preserved.

The proscenium arch, tiers and boxes were gold leafed and the plasterwork restored. On all levels the seats were replaced with Edwardian-style theatre seats in keeping with the restoration.

The castle by the Tyne
Newcastle Castle
The Castle is a medieval fortification built on the site of the fortress that gave the city its name. The most prominent remaining structures on the site are the Castle Keep, the castle’s main fortified stone tower, and the Black Gate, its fortified gatehouse.

St James Park, 10 minutes before a match
St James Park
St James’ Park is a major English football stadium. The ground is home of Premier League club Newcastle United F.C.

With a seating capacity of 52,305 seats, it is the eighth largest football stadium in England. The stadium expansion of 1998–2000 was designed by TTH Architects, Gateshead.

St James’ Park has been the home ground of Newcastle United since 1892, and has been used for football since 1880. Between 1920 and 1930, plans were drawn up for a double-tiered stand by notable football architect Archibald Leitch. However, after planning disputes, all that was achieved was a small roof over the Leazes Terrace side – the Sir John Hall Stand.
