The Tyne Theatre and Opera House is a Grade 1 listed theatre rated “in the top 4% of listed buildings” by English Heritage and is afforded a three-star (the highest) rating by the Theatres Trust, “a very fine theatre of the highest theatrical and architectural quality”.
Back in January 2015 the theatre was given a new lease of life when a new operating company, Tyne Theatre & Opera House Ltd was set up to operate and manage the business. The Limited Company is the Preservation Trust’s subsidiary.
