Newcastle To Open UK’s First Socially-Distanced Music Venue

In the middle of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Newcastle is set to be the first city in the UK to be opening a dedicated socially-distanced music venue this summer.

The Virgin Money Unity Arena, at Newcastle Racecourse will be able to hold audiences of up to 2,500 people and is set to open in August. The venue is going to be hosting a variety of gigs, Dj sets, comedy shows and family entertainment performances.

The venue promises to follow all social distancing mandates from the parking to the bathrooms to the viewing area. Food and Drink outlets will be available for guests with orders having to be made in advance and food delivered to your own spot in the arena.

Fans will have to arrive by car, opposed to public transport and park in socially distanced car park spots. Once inside, all visitors will be kept two metres apart and will need to follow a one way system in order to use the toilets.

The venue has confirmed they already have sever artists lined up to perform and will donate a number of free tickets to each show to NHS workers.
