We’ve received confirmation from Gateshead Council that live music can go ahead at the Schooner.
We’re operating at reduced capacity, but all advertised gigs will go ahead as planned.
Acoustic Friday gigs will be unticketed and on a first come basis. We can use only the stage seating area and, as usual, social distancing rules will apply.
All Saturday and Sunday gigs will be ticketed and there can be no entry without a ticket.
Obviously, we’ve seating inside the pub, but there’s no standing room for health reasons.
The highway outside the pub and land opposite the pub cannot be used by the pub or its customers. We’re seeking the appropriate permission, but there’s no certainty of this being granted. We ask customers to respect this Council decision.
