LIVE Music

LIVE in the King's Hall is temporarily moving…

Due to the refurbishment of the ground floor of the Armstrong Building, some work is being done to the King’s Hall.  Therefore the LIVE Lunchtime Concerts and Student Performances, as well as recitals and other concerts, organised by the International Centre for Music Studies (ICMuS), will be moving locations from October 2015 to summer 2016.

Lunchtime Concerts, Student Performances and recitals continue to be free and open to staff, students and members of the public.

Lunchtime concerts

Lunchtime concerts take place at Brunswick Methodist Church in the centre of Newcastle, just behind Fenwick, off Northumberland Street. 

They will continue to take place on Thursdays, but will not be every week.  Lunchtime concerts start promptly at 1.10pm and last around 50 minutes. 

Brunswick Methodist Church is close to public transport. Read our directions to Brunswick Methodist Church.

The free lunchtime concerts are made possible largely due to the contributions made by members of the audience.  To help support the concerts, why not become a Friend?

Student performances

Student performances will take place in Spaces 4 and 5 (first floor) in Culture Lab, King's Walk, which is between Newcastle University’s Student Union and Campus Coffee.  You can find the location of Culture Lab on our campus map (building Number 7).

Performances start at 4.30pm (please note new start time) and last approximately one hour.
