Live Theatre in Newcastle prepares for new cultural development

29th September 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Chronicle.

Nowadays Live is far more than the small but beautifully formed organisation first founded in 1973.

Besides setting up an online play-writing course and teaming up with leading Newcastle chef Terry Laybourne on The Broad Chare gastro-pub just down the road, it has transformed its adjacent old schoolhouse building into a home for creative businesses.
Live Works is its fourth major project and it will fill the long-neglected gap, next to the former Flynn’s bar overlooking the Tyne.

Opening a conference recently, Jim Beirne [the theatre’s chief executive] outlined this next exciting chapter in a wider context.
“If the culture of a place is successful, it’ll be fun and safe, students will come, universities will thrive, students will stay, SMEs will grow, and therefore so will the economy,” he told The Theatres Trust Conference.
