The Sage Gateshead
Situated on the south bank of the River Tyne, The Sage Gateshead is a new center for conferences, exhibitions, performances and musical education. Part of the Gateshead Quays development in the northeastern part of England, this new conference center is an incredible work of architecture – a curved steel and glass building that seems to undulate under the sky. Today the center hosts a large variety of special events, from national political conventions and regional folk music performances to electronic dance parties and classical symphonies.
The slick, stainless steel and glass curves of The Sage Gateshead run throughout its interior as well, and the entire conference center is a beautiful work of art. Along with plenty of space for students, amateurs and professional musicians to practice, The Sage Gateshead features three performance spaces. The main performance hall is a 1,700-seat venue, there's also a 450-seat theater and the Northern Rock Foundation Hall, an intimate rehearsal and performance venue. Designed for top quality acoustics, the three performances halls are enclosed in the sinuous glass and steel structure, which is open to the public throughout the day.
