The available space extends across the entire width of the building, is light and airy with amazing views of the river and Fish Quay. There is access by lift or stairs and a washroom on this and other floors. There is a small kitchen area, which can be screened off with a curtain.
Also, on the top floor, is an outdoor viewing balcony, offering spectacular views of the river, the promenade leading to Collingwood’s monument and Tynemouth Priory.
Under normal circumstances the room can accommodate up to 60 people when set up in a theatre style arrangement. However, while Government restrictions on social distancing have been lifted, we are mindful that some people may not feel comfortable seated with so many people around them. So, we have reduced the number of seats to 28-30. This change will be kept under review and numbers increased if appropriate and safe, depending on the situation in relation to Covid-19.
For parties and functions requiring seating and tables, the room can accommodate around 20 people.
As with other areas of the building, we are encouraging people to wear face coverings when they are walking around and continue to respect one another’s personal space.
