Alphabetti creates, produces and programmes new original work from exciting artists across the performing arts. In 2017 we transformed the third venue space in our short history into our new home. Located on St James Boulevard Alphabetti is Newcastle’s newest and smallest producing theatre.

We house a flexible 75 seater or 150 standing performance space, a café / bar (open 5pm – 11pm Tuesday to Thursday and 5pm to midnight Friday and Saturday), a bookshop, a rehearsal space, a prop and costume workshop/store and artist studios.

"Alphabetti has become an essential part of the region's theatre ecology. Long may it continue."

British Theatre Guide 2016

Alphabetti was not opened for business, money, or personal gain but for the necessity of a fringe venue in Newcastle and the North East, ensuring the development and improvement of the ecology of the performing arts in the region.



A great party relies on a few things: good food, plenty of drink, good company and great entertainment. Alphabetti Theatre’s meticulous approach ensures we create the party you have always wanted.  We work with many artists across the North East, so we can provide for a wide range of requirements. 


Our upstairs rehearsal room / smaller performance space offers somewhere for hire that is accommodating to your needs. 



Alphabetti staff are fully licensed to serve and distribute alcohol so if you’re having a party and need a bar talk to us! We’re a lot more interesting than your standard bar!
