The Newcastle Civic Centre prides itself in being the premier conference venue in the region. The venue offers a superb selection of conference rooms with state-of-the-art presentation equipment. The Banqueting Suite, which will be the site of keynote lectures and sponsor exhibitions, is a breath-taking grand hall, capable of seating up to 600 people. The breakout rooms, used for student presentations, each boast a unique and individual style, and are capable of seating between 60 and 180 people.

Ideally located in the heart of the city, the Newcastle Civic Centre is:

  • Less than 10 minutes walk from both Newcastle and Northumbria University research facilities.
  • A short drive away from most motorway links, a 5 minute drive from Newcastle Central Station, and a 15 minute drive from Newcastle International Airport.
  • Adjacent to the Haymarket Metro station, which provide links to both Newcastle Central Station and the Newcastle International Airport.
  • 5 mins walking distance from the Haymarket and Eldon Square Bus stations, which link to the whole North-East region.

Bus and metro timetables can be found on the Nexus Tyne and Wear website.
