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.

We receive the occasional Grant for the Arts from the Arts Council and other charitable organisations however the majority of our income to keep us running comes from our bar, so when you visit us make sure you sample our fine offerings!

We have a number of opportunities to get involved in such as performing in the space for theatre companies, writers, directors, poets, comedians and musicians.

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. We are proud to think that we can offer entertainment for most occasions from a stag do to children’s birthday party and everything in between. If you have any queries or would like a quote for an event please don’t hesitate to contact General Manager Alex on



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! 



Spice up your event with some incognito performers; masquerading as waiters our performers will go around your event unnoticed by your guests until that precise moment when they break out into song or dance or a comedic shock fight scene! Prices vary depending on what you require.
