Based on an idea by Andy Bogle, Geordie The Musical is a heart-warming story of North East life featuring traditional Geordie songs. 

Step back to 1890 as The Customs House and Tyne Theatre & Opera House combine traditional Northumbrian songs and music with the award-winning storytelling skills of Tom Kelly.

On the banks of the River Tyne, Bella, James and their daughter Maggie run The Wheatsheaf, a traditional, popular drinking house where folks from near and far enjoy a pint and a sing song. You’re guaranteed a warm welcome, unless you rock the boat, then you’ll be out on your ear... A celebration of our heritage, our history, our home.
