Based in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the Students Union at Northumbria University boasts excellent campus facilities.
Following a series of upgrades in the past 12 months all the principal Student Union (NSU) spaces have been equipped with premium RCF sound systems. This applies to Reds Bar, with its leather upholstered booth seating and full 300-capacity performance stage, which can accommodate up to 900 students; Domain, its biggest, multipurpose venue, which has already hosted some of NSU’s bigger gigs, including Ed Sheeran, Ella Eyre, Anthrax, London Grammar and Soul II Soul; Habita, its award-winning stylish and relaxed cocktail bar; and finally Stage 2, a purpose built theatre performance space, which is used for student assessments and shows.
“When I took over the department in 2014 we talked about the future of gigs and formed a relationship with [local RCF partner] Nitelites. Since then, we have systematically moved over to RCF.”
