Laing Art Gallery

If you’re looking for a cultured and sophisticated venue for your next corporate event, The Laing Gallery in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne will suit you perfectly. This elegant Edwardian building boasts paintings by JMW Turner, Paul Gauguin, Thomas Gainsborough and Burne-Jones, and is an impressive and distinguished venue for refined dinners, drinks receptions, training sessions, conferences and business meetings.

Founded in 1901 the Laing Gallery has an outstanding and nationally important collection of works of art, focusing on British oil paintings, watercolours, ceramics, silver and glassware. With four spaces for hire, this cultural hub is the ultimate arts venue for all kinds of functions. Host a dignified reception for up to 240 guests in the gorgeous Marble Hall and Restaurant, for 150 in the sophisticated Northern Spirit Gallery, or for 100 in the cultural space of the 18th and 19th century Gallery. The Function Room is the ideal space for conferences, seminars, training sessions and other business meetings, with capacity for 60 delegates in theatre style or for a standing reception. If you have larger numbers to entertain and impress then opt for exclusive hire of the whole gallery, giving you enough space for a drinks reception for 550 people, and access to view one of the most admirable collections in the UK.

You can book an exclusive event to include a guided tour, wine, and canapes or a three-course dinner – with all catering brought to you by prestigious world class chefs who create innovative dishes using the finest seasonal produce. A well-seasoned events team will work hard to create your bespoke event, whether it’s a private celebration or a corporate function, covering all the details including audio-visual equipment and themed accessories.

Laing Art Gallery is situated on New Bridge Street in the centre of Newcastle, just a five-minute stroll from Monument Metro station, with an NCP car park close by.
