Documentary Evidence


This was in a large public house in Bottle Bank. It seated 400 people. But it had a short life from 1874-80. The owner was George Handyside, who later built the Handyside Arcade in Newcastle. He tried to establish another music hall at Pleasant Row, but residents petitioned and a theatre licence was withheld.
