Sage Gateshead hosts various types of events throughout the year, beyond our live music and education offer; from political broadcasts, conferences to weddings. From time to time an event requires a building closure in order for us to deliver them effectively. The income from these events helps to continue to support the rich and varied offer our customers know and love.
