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. Together with the operating company, the Trustees of the Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust are committed to restoring the theatre to its former glory and raising the necessary funds to ensure that its heritage is sustained for future generations.
