The Sage Gateshead is a world class venue for people to see music, hear music and play music.
The Sage Gateshead contains three performance spaces of acoustic excellence, a 1,700-seater called Hall One and is modelled on the Musikverein in Vienna, a 400-seater Hall Two and a smaller rehearsal and performance hall.
The Sage Gateshead is open 7 days a week from 9am – 9pm (or later subject to performance times)
The Sage features five bars, Baltic Riverside Cafe, Sir Michael Straker Cafe, a brasserie, The Barbour Room, a multi-purpose function room for parties, weddings, small conferences and musical performances. You can drop in to these at anytime to enjoy the views over the river without even having to attend a concert as the building is open to the public even when there are no performances taking place.
There is also a well-equipped musical branch of Gateshead public library, stocking books, and current magazines covering all aspects of music, a CD library with listening posts, and computers with free internet access, subscriptions to music websites, and music software.
