"The evening was a rollercoaster of film, music, dance and superb acting ... a huge round of applause to all those involved" - NE Lifestyle Magazine 

"I had a blast and learned a lot and you will too. Get down and share in some local pride!” Break A Leg 

M.C. George Stanley, theatrical entrepreneur, in association with Shoe Tree Arts proudly presents Heaton!

Heaton: where Charles Parsons developed the steam turbine, giving the world cheap electricity; where social reformer Florence Nightingale Harrison-Bell campaigned for women’s rights; the birthplace of Ove Arup who built Sydney Opera House; where suffragettes set fire to Heaton Park Bowling Green Pavilion; home of Colin Veitch, Newcastle Utd’s most successful captain, co-founder of the People’s Theatre, and where today the Freeman Hospital is at the cutting edge of medical technology.

Inspired by the Great Exhibition of the North, this feast of drama, music, dance and film celebrates the lives and achievements of these pioneers, all intertwined with the love affair between time-travelling fictional couple Freddie and Catherine.

Please note, this production contains smoking.

Alongside HEATON! we are delighted to have the artwork of local school children in our Foyer Gallery exhibition BRAINS, STEAM AND SPEED: 250 YEARS OF SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS IN HEATON. See peoplestheatre.co.uk/gallery for more information and viewing times.
