As its name suggests this theatre, cinema, and gallery space occupies a former customs house close to the mouth of the river Tyne. The program of events in the theatre is varied, offering music, dance, drama and comedy. The Customs House is often one of the out of town venues for the annual Newcastle Comedy Festival. The cinema shows the latest releases, as well as less mainstream and sometimes locally funded and made films. The gallery displays a number of touring exhibitions, as well as the work of local artists. Many of the facilities, including the bar and restaurant are available to hire for conferences, seminars, and other events.
