THE CLASSIC STORY ON STAGE
20 January 2019 – 25 January 2019
From the A1(M) / A1:
Take the exit signposted (from the South) Gateshead and Newcastle (Centre) A184 or (from the North) Gateshead A184. Keep in the left-hand lane of A184 signposted Gateshead town centre. At roundabout, take third exit, signposted Gateshead town centre. Go straight through two sets of traffic lights. Get into the right hand lane to go straight over at a third set of lights. At the fourth set of lights, turn left onto Oakwellgate and immediately right under the railway bridge up the steep slope into our car park, or second right to the drop-off point, or blue badge parking.
From Newcastle Centre:
From the Tyne Bridge, go through the pedestrian traffic lights, under the railway bridge and straight across the next traffic lights. At the next lights, take the left signed Gateshead Quays and East Gateshead (NOT the loop signed Consett or Metro Centre). At the first lights with Mecca Bingo on your right, turn left onto Oakwellgate. Stay in the right hand lane under the railway bridge and take first right into our car park or second right to the drop-off point or blue badge parking.
From the Swing Bridge:
Go straight up Bridge Street, which turns into Cannon Street: as the road bears round to the right, go left for the drop-off point or blue badge parking or follow the road right into Oakwellgate and take the first left to our car park just before the railway bridge.
There is a drop-off and collection point at the west door of Sage Gateshead.
The Tyne & Wear Metro:
