The National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool is our main festival site.

In addition to a variety of smaller-scale spaces at the NMRN for workshops, talks and intimate concerts, we have two comfortable function rooms, The William Gray Suite and the Baltic Rooms, for mid-scale concerts. Both have bars.

HMS Trincomalee contains two spaces for performance: the Captain’s Cabin for concerts, and the Mess Deck for more relaxed events. There’s also lots to explore on site, and loads of space for dance and outdoor performance.

Mainstage concerts and special events take place at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre, a short 10 minute walk away.
