Help us keep live music at the Schooner

Breakfast Club will be live at the Schooner tonight at seven. The gig is ticket only and all tickets have been taken.

Space is very limited, with the stage area available only to ticket holders.

The pub and its customers cannot use the road area outside the pub due to a Gateshead Council prohibition order. We ask customers to respect this.

A lot of indoor tables have been booked. There will still be some space inside the pub, but when we’re full, we’ll be asking people to leave the area.

That doesn’t mean that everyone can’t enjoy the Breakfast Club. We still sell beer in containers to take away and we have a beautiful stretch of riverbank and a grassed area within a very short distance.

We don’t like to impose rules, but we do care about everyone’s safety. We also want to keep live music at the Schooner.

So we’ll keep things simple. If you don’t have a ticket for the band at the outdoor stage, or a seat indoors, we need you to use the Schooner’s lockdown unofficial beer garden. Not sure where that is? Just ask, or follow someone carrying a world famous Schooner milk bottle.

Help us keep live music at the Schooner by respecting our request.

Reopening

In common with many pubs, the Schooner will reopen on Saturday 4th July.

We’re taking bookings for tables and will probably operate table service during busy periods. We’ll do our best to accommodate everyone, even if you’ve not booked.

If you’d like to book a table, please email beer@theschooner.co.uk.

Our seating will look something like this.

Inside Out

The BBC made a rather excellent programme about the Schooner.

The episode of Inside Out, shown last night, aimed to show how tough things can be for an independent pub.

The episode can be found on the BBC iPlayer. It’s worth watching because it also covers the serious issue of male suicide.
