The Common Room

The Common Room, formerly known to most as The Mining Institute, is a new charity formed to take forward the restoration of Neville Hall in Newcastle.

Our vision is to use our unique heritage to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers. Through education and engagement activities, we will support the region’s future economic growth and provide a range of public spaces for innovation, collaboration, events, lectures, weddings and more.

The Common Room is a celebration of Graft and Glory: telling the stories of the North East that changed the world, then and now.
