The Common Room

Welcome to The Common Room …

The Common Room will be a celebration of graft and glory. Telling the stories of the North East that changed the world, then and now. By revitalising our Grade 2* Listed building and making a step change in the access and interpretation of our internationally recognised archive of the Industrial revolution we will provide the space, and inspiration, for new collaborations and innovations. Instilling pride, ownership and understanding to continue to support the North East economy. Using our unique heritage to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers. Engaging with the business community the Common Room programme will deliver this, providing education and enrichment for young people, promoting skills development for the region’s workforce and engaging the public with the heritage. We will provide comfortable and accessible meeting rooms with first class facilities and menus for commercial meetings and a curious public to generate income to fund our ambitions.
