LOCATION, LOCATION: Rehearse in the heart of Newcastle

Set in the heart of Newcastle, within The Station precinct, Marmalade Sky Music is located on the second floor of the building directly across the road from Customs House Hotel. You’ll find the entrance on The Station side of the building, guarded by our big friendly snake playground.
You’ll need to walk up a generous set of stairs when entering, so keep that in mind if you’re bringing heavy equipment. But why bother when there is so much on offer already?
