Gosforth Civic Theatre reopens August Bank Holiday Weekend

Gosforth Civic Theatre

After a huge refurbishment, we are pleased to report that Gosforth Civic Theatre is reopening.

The August Bank Holiday weekend will see a host of FREE activities for families to enjoy. Full line up below

On Saturday 26 August, come and visit our new and improved Café, Bar & Kitchen. Treat yourself to snacks and drinks from our brand-new menu served from our revamped kitchen and deli. Pray for good weather, as Curious Arts will take over our garden and courtyard with their hugely popular outdoor performance piece Wildflower.

As our new Community Studio will not quite be ready; join in some arts and crafts with Mini Crafters, for creative souls of all ages in our newly decorated and bright foyer space.

Also on Saturday, Voices of Virtue Gospel Choir lead a programme of performance and live music, including performances from Young Musician Project artist Izzy and our very own Liberdade. With the upgrades we’ve made to our sound and lighting, this will be an unforgettable experience. There will also be a special exhibit from artist Rob Reza with a new piece depicting Martin Luther King, an exclusive for GCT before it goes to New York City to take residence there a week later.

It doesn’t stop there! On Sunday 27 August you’re invited to drop in to a full day of free activities for the whole family. We promise to keep everyone entertained with:

–    Our infamous GCT Gaming Social, video games galore for fans young and not-so-young!
–    The Bubbleologist Jesse Ward, always a winner with the kids.
–    DJ Paula Penman will spin some tunes at our Summer Disco to get everyone on the dancefloor and busting some moves. 

After eight months away, we’re looking forward to welcoming you back and showing you around our newly refurbished auditorium, Café, Bar & Kitchen, and brand-new Community Studio.
