The Turbine Hall is the CastleGate’s largest and most spectacular space. Originally housing the turbines that provided electricity for the city trams, it is one of the largest halls of its kind in Newcastle and Gateshead (for more information about the history of this magnificent hall, please see the history page). Fully refurbished, it is now an exceptional venue for events and in recent years has been host to clients such as the BBC, Orange, British Airways and Channel 4. The hall is ideally suited to:

  • Conferences of up to 500 delegates
  • Exhibitions & trade shows
  • Annual general meetings and seminars
  • Examinations
  • Award ceremonies
  • Fashion shows
  • Wedding receptions

The Turbine Hall is located on the ground floor, adjacent to a new atrium entrance, allowing full accessibility for those with limited mobility. At the front of the hall, there is a platform stage as well as a fully integrated projection system. To the rear, a purpose-made refreshments area, allowing delegates a space to mingle away from their seats.

Full PA and AV facilities are available upon request, complete with on-site technician, as well as simple spot lighting for the stage. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout.

Contact one of the CastleGate team today for a viewing of the hall, or for any other enquiries. We would be delighted to hear from you.
