Glasshouse International Centre for Music

For audiences, for artists, for the North, for the long term

Glasshouse is an international music centre and renowned conference and event venue located in the North East of England. It is for artists, for audiences and for the North.

Every year we welcome more than two million visitors. More than 400 concerts featuring all kinds of local, regional and international music, take place all year round. Music-making and learning activity takes place not only in the building but across the region, with 190,000 people of all ages taking part in over 10,000 music classes and workshops.

The iconic building, designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners, is home to Royal Northern Sinfonia and is a place where emerging artists are nurtured through dedicated programmes and festivals.

As a charity, the support we receive helps to ensure everyone in the community can experience the wonder and joy of music.

Glasshouse will joint chair NGCV with TWAM in 2023-2024
