Description

Newcastle Cathedral presents The Last Night of the Proms

Saturday 30 September 2017 at 7:00pm (Concert will end by 9:15pm)

The nationally renowned Newcastle Cathedral Choir is teaming up with the North of England Championship winning Dunston Silver Band to perform in the beautiful and historic setting of Newcastle Cathedral, Church of St Nicholas. Dunston Silver Band, a well-known musical giant of the North East, is a 28-piece Brass Band based in Dunston, Gateshead.

Rousing choral and brass favourites will be performed, with British music by Parry, Stanford and Elgar. Dunston Silver Band will perform a range of music which will be sure to get everyone’s toes tapping. There will be the opportunity to hear Newcastle Cathedral Choir perform some of the glories of the church music repertoire, but this concert will also be a rare opportunity to hear them perform some lighter music. The evening will conclude with the popular and traditional music of the ‘Last Night’ (Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, The National Anthem etc.).

There will be an interval during which drinks can be purchased.

Tickets for this exciting and memorable evening of music can be purchased beforehand via EVENTBRITE or on the door that evening. This concert is suitable for the whole family.

Ticket Prices

Adult Admission (18's and over) unreserved seating - £10 per person

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Newcastle Cathedral is within easy reach of many public transport links:

RAILWAY
Newcastle Central Train Station is just five minutes' walk from Newcastle Cathedral. When leaving Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. You will pass by the monument to George Stephenson, father of Robert Stephenson, as well as The Literary and Philosophical Society and the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers. Then follow Collingwood Street to bring you out at Newcastle Cathedral.

CAR
The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, at the back of the Cathedral. Follow the path left or right to approach the front entrance to the Cathedral. There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 48 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside's multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The Nexus operated Tyne and Wear Metro service operates into Newcastle city centre - with several stations in close proximity to Newcastle Cathedral. The nearest stations are Monument Station (at the top of the Grade I-listed Grey Street) and Central Station, both less than ten minutes' walk away. If travelling from the Airport via Regent Centre, you will have to alight at Haymarket and change platforms.
The Q1 QuayLink bus service runs to the bottom of the Side, the medieval Quayside street which leads up to the Cathedral. Public buses run outside of the Cathedral into Gateshead and towards Durham and Chester-le-Street once every 15 minutes (weekdays and Saturdays).

ON FOOT
From the city centre: Head down Grey Street, passing by the Theatre Royal. Turn right along Mosley Street, which will bring you out to the north facade of Newcastle Cathedral.
From Central Station: As you leave Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. Following Collingwood Street will bring you to Newcastle Cathedral.
From the Quayside: Alight the Side - the main medieval route into Newcastle. Alternatively, you can take Dog Leap Stairs. They're steep but rise straight up to the Cathedral. The Castle Stairs are another route. These can be found on the Quayside, across the road from the Swing Bridge. Again, this is steep but will bring you to the Castle Keep. Keep forward along St Nicholas Street to approach the Cathedral on your right.
