Northern Stage parking details
In response to complications for coaches accessing the Northern Stage Theatre since the Newcastle University campus where it is based was pedestrianised, CPT has come to some agreements with the management. The three vehicle layby outside the Hancock museum on the north side of Claremont Road remains available. Discussions will take place with the City Council to agree to three coaches setting down/picking up on the north bound carriageway at Barras Bridge. The University is willing to let four coaches come on site and turn around under supervision. Double deckers cannot do this, due to a low bridge on the site. During the busy panto season, the Theatre will allocate a pick up/set down point to operators. It is hoped these arrangements will be in place for the start of this year’s pantomime in November.
