Free Metro Travel with your Whitley Bay Playhouse Ticket!
All Playhouse tickets for shows from the 7th August 2015 now come with an additional benefit as you can now travel to the Playhouse on the Metro for free with your theatre ticket. Theatre tickets are valid up to two hours before and after the performance, just simply retain your Playhouse ticket for inspection by Metro Staff when travelling to or from the Playhouse for a show.
The Playhouse Whitley Bay is delighted to be working with Nexus to provide this extra added benefit to ticket holders on a trial basis until April 2016, and it’s hoped the partnership continues.
North Tynesideis well serviced by the Metro and is Monkseaton Metro Station the nearest to the Playhouse just a 10 minute walk away from the theatre. Alternatively the Whitley Bay Station is also just over 10 minutes away through the centre of Whitley Bay.
Cllr Eddie Darke, cabinet member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “This is a great initiative and one that I’m sure will be very popular with those going along to enjoy all of the fantastic events and performances at the Playhouse.”
The Metro is the hassle free choice to travel to the Playhouse Whitley Bay. With frequent services you can arrive ready to relax with a pre-show with a drink from our well stocked bars in advance of the performance. A full range of alcoholic and soft drinks are on offer, with nibbles to enjoy throughout the show.
With a varied and busy Autumn and Winter Season coming up, from The Lindisfarne Story to Paul Potts, and of course the ever popular Christmas Pantomime we hope patrons take advantage of this opportunity to hop on the Metro free and save on the search for parking space and parking fees!
