Go and See offers

Our Go and See programme aims to ensure that people living in our ten wards get the chance to experience the best arts and cultural events happening across the North East and beyond.

We’re working with theatres, galleries, festivals and artists to gain access to special events, back stage tours and discounted tickets for people living in our wards.

We hope that Go and See will help encourage people to go and see something new without having to worry too much about the cost of tickets or of transport. The programme also provides ‘behind the scenes’ opportunities to meet performers or artists.

So far we have promoted Go and Sees with Royal North Sinfonia and Sage Gateshead at Red House Academy, Tyne by Michael Chaplin at Customs House and Live Theatre, Lydia’s House at Customs House and the Canny Space.

Go and See is a joint project with bait, another Creative People and Places project based at Woodhorn Museum, Northumberland and managed by Richard Bliss.

Current Go and Sees:

Five Dead Nobodies

We have a number of tickets available for new play Five Dead Nobodies by Susan Wear (nominated for North East Writer of the Year for the 2016 acclaimed Customs House production, The Duke in The Cupboard) and former Shields Gazette Editor Rob Lawson. Five Dead Nobodies focuses on the fight to keep the local paper alive against the internet and just what the desperate Editor will do to bring the audience back.

Five Dead Nobodies will take place at The Customs House from Wednesday 15th February to Saturday 18th February.

Discounted tickets are £8 by using the code NEWSPAPER.

For tickets visit The Customs House website or call 0191 454 1234 or come along in person.
