Venue Hire

… rooms for all occasions


The Linskill Centre, nestled between North Shields and Tynemouth, is only a twenty minute drive from Newcastle and is a unique venue for all your conference, meeting and corporate needs. Managed by the Linskill and North Tyneside Community Development Trust this community facility provides venue hire at reasonable prices with all proceeds being reinvested into the Linskill Centre and its community activities.

Retaining many of its original features and character the centre is available for hire on a one-off or short term basis and is ideal for conferences, meetings, training days, corporate dinners, AGMs, birthday parties, weddings, christenings and music events.
