Customs House

Customs House

Offering a busy programme of arts and entertainment all under one roof, The Customs House is host to live performers and theatre as well as mainstream and independent cinema and an art gallery exhibiting painting, sculpture and installation art.

As well as functioning as a theatre, cinema, gallery and rehearsal rooms, the venue offers a vibrant environment for conferences, seminars, wedding receptions, product launches and other events, with facilities for between 10 and 400 guests. The Green Room, decorated with the work of local artists, is situated on the ground floor and enjoys expansive views across the Tyne, with private dining space for up to 22 people.

What it is: Located right by the River Tyne, this vibrant arts centre is the perfect choice for any couple looking for something a bit different. You can host your wedding reception in The Port of Tyne Gallery surrounded by original works of art, or choose the more intimate setting of the River Suite, which enjoys stunning views of the river. 

Why we love it: A wedding video of your making can be projected onto the big screen and shown to your friends and family who will be provided with popcorn and champagne.
