  • Playhouse Whitley Bay

    This beautifully refurbished venue is the flagship of a major re-generation project, breathing new life into the famous coastal resort of Whitley Bay.  The theatre has had a long history and has been an important part of the lives of many people living in and visiting the town.

    The venue boasts 630 luxury auditorium seats, a 10 seater corporate viewing suite and a contemporary look and feel to its bars and lounge areas which features a fabulous sea view. 

    The transformation of the venue, situated on Marine Avenue, is a key part of North Tyneside Council’s £64million regeneration programme for Whitley Bay.  It has also become an integral part of the local community programme, regularly playing host to productions from local artistic and drama groups.
