Café Laing

Café Laing is now closed until further notice.

Due to reduced numbers of visitors and the upcoming government restrictions, we're sorry to have to share that we are not able to offer a cafe service at this time. 

Covid-19 has had a huge impact on our income. Now more than ever, we believe culture sits firmly at the heart of the North East - please help us keep it there. If you would like to support us you can donate here.

Thank you for your support.
