The Palace of Arts building in Newcastle’s Exhibition Park has been given a loving make over by Wylam Brewery, who have today announced their plans for the venue’s opening weekend.

The Happenings, taking place from Friday 27th-Sunday 29th May will form the backbone of a series of regular events at the 1920s Art Deco building, encompassing street food, craft beer and live music. Other live performances will include slots from local legends Lindisfarne (Friday 3rd June), indie rockers Mystery Jets (Thursday 6th October) and soul sensation Michael Kiwanuka (Saturday 8th October).

Here at NARC., we’re very excited to announce a series of summer concerts at the prestigious venue. Entitled NARC. In The Park, we’re pulling together line-ups featuring the cream of the North East crop, with the first event on Saturday 4th June featuring Northern funk behemoths Smoove & Turrell, with many more acts to be announced.

In addition to regular events, the venue will also be home to The North East Brewers Market, programmed by Craft Beer Calling, and taking place on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th June. A brewery tap will be open Thursday to Saturday, pouring brews and blends which will be exclusive to the premises.

“It’s extremely exciting for us to be able to announce our opening dates along with the initial programme of events and live music shows at our new home at the Palace of Arts. We look forward to opening the doors to this incredible and historically important building,” said Wylam Brewery Director Dave Stone, “It has been almost a decade since anyone has had the opportunity to visit the Palace of Arts and we have taken great pride and care in bringing the building back to life.”
