Special Events

The Great North Museum: Hancock is one of the most unusual and exciting event venues in Newcastle. Whether you are organising a corporate dinner, charity fundraiser, graduation or private event, the museum will provide an unforgettable experience for up to 350 guests. To make a real impression, why not hire the whole museum? Host your arrival drinks in the Living Planet Gallery, surrounded by life-size casts of elephants, great white sharks and giant leather back turtles. Then, take your guests through to the dancefloor in the main exhibition hall, via Hadrian's wall and our famous T-Rex! For smaller dinners of up to 100 guests, the Living Planet Gallery is also the perfect setting for intimate dining.
