Doing their bit to combat holiday hunger and make the theatre more accessible, the lovely folk at Northern Stage are offering families free tickets to three fab summer shows with a complimentary healthy breakfast or lunch from their Café Bar. Families with a Newcastle postcode who receive free school meals or are experiencing hardship in some other way can take advantage of this great offer which is funded by StreetGames UK’s Newcastle’s Best Ever Holiday Activity and Food Programme 2023.

There And Back Again

Anyone with small people knows that their summer of 'freedom' can be a bloody massive challenge for parents and carers. However, on Tyneside this August it is possible to keep your little ones entertained, with three weeks of family shows at Northern Stage from 2 – 19 August. Children and their families can go on an adventure to ancient Greece in There And Back Again, get their hands hands dirty at Claytime and find out about what happens at Alfie’s First Fight.

In addition to the performances, families can sing and dance along to free child friendly DJ sets by Spin City, a multi-genre Global Majority and Queer DJ and performer crew based in the North East of England. There's also free pop-up storytelling sessions from books selected by Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, that will take place inside the theatre and there's going to be outdoor games on the lawn. Visitors are encouraged to stay and play for the whole day come rain or shine.
