The Playhouse Whitley Bay has opened its box office allowing the public to book in person.

The venue in North Tyneside, currently undergoing an £8 million redevelopment, boasts a brand new seating area and patrons are being encouraged to view their seats before they purchase their tickets. The initial opening hours will be Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm and Saturday 9.30am – 1.30pm.

Ailsa Oliver, Playhouse Director, said “The box office offers a direct route to patrons to purchase tickets in person. Over the forthcoming weeks we will have a member of staff on hand to show those who would like to, an opportunity to view their seats when they come to the venue to purchase their tickets”
