Training in Newcastle

Training in Aberdeen

Newcastle upon Tyne, or simply Newcastle, is a city and a metropolitan borough in the English county of Tyne and Wear. The city is located on the northern bank of the River Tyne and comprises most of the Tyneside built-up region. Newcastle is also the largest city in North East England. Newcastle sprang up around a Roman hamlet called Pons Aelius, which was later named after a fortress built in 1080 by William the Conqueror’s eldest son, Robert Curthose.

Theatres

Newcastle has a rich history of theatre. For fifteen years, Stephen Kemble of the well-known Kemble family administered Newcastle’s original Theatre Royal. Stephen Kemble led several memorable seasons at the theatre. The first and largest, Newcastle Theatre Royal, located on Mosley Street, opened on 21 January 1788. It was demolished to make room for Grey Street, where it was replaced. It was designed by John and Benjamin Green and inaugurated in 1837. For almost 25 years, it has hosted a season of Royal Shakespeare Company performances, as well as touring productions of West End musicals.
