Civic Theatre Newcastle

The art deco Civic Theatre Newcastle is Newcastle's premier venue for live stage productions, presenting a year round calendar of events, including live music, comedy, dance, live theatre and educational events.

Within the footprint of the Civic Theatre is the Civic Digest, a contemporary cafe and bar with quality food and beverages set in an ambient and creative space. Enjoy a glass of wine, sip delicious coffee or enjoy a tasty light meal before going to show.

The heritage-listed Civic Theatre was designed by prominent architect Henry Eli White and opened in 1929. It is one of few surviving late-1920s atmospheric theatres in the country.
