Spare Room

We’re always looking for more ways to share our resources.  We want to support your work, and we want our building to be full of artists.  After all, that’s what it’s for.  So we’ve made a cunning plan. 

This season, we’ll be offering free last-minute spaces to any individual or group, for the purposes of creative work.  Each week, we’ll look at our diaries, and offer you use of everything that’s available – from Stage 1 down to our smallest dressing room. 

Spare Room availability is advertised a week in advance through the Creative Team network. If you are not already on the circulation list, you can register by clicking here and sending us a completed application form (You'll find it under the 'How do I apply' section.) You'll then receive an email every week with details of what space we have available for the coming week. 

Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that we cannot offer technical support, photocopying or any other additional services.

First in three submissions

First in 3 is a chance for theatre-makers, writers and performers to showcase new work and try it out for the first time in front of an audience in Stage 3 at Northern Stage.  Artists are asked to submit a proposal to us by filling in a dedicated form. Find out more.
