Opening in 1927 the Harrison and Harrison Organ made Newcastle City Hall a major venue for classical concerts. As tastes changed through the 60s many of the greats of the era played, including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Still a major concert venue City Hall has widened its repertoire to include comedy and other touring acts.

Five minutes walk from Haymarket Metro Station, one minute from the Quaylink bus stop on John Dobson Street and 15 minutes from Newcastle Central train station.
