Our mission is to use our heritage to support our economy to grow. We would love to speak to you about your company becoming a founding corporate partner at The Common Room, with opportunities available from £2,500 a year.
Our event spaces will be used by thousands of people when we reopen; spaces available to name include our iconic lecture theatre, which was the seat of North East industrial innovation during the industrial revolution. Talk to our team about whether room naming could support your profile, charitable giving or mission.
Donations and legacies
Personal and corporate donations to support our capital and programme activity are still needed to secure our future. Get in touch with us about making a donation or if you would like to leave us a legacy in your will, please download our brochure.
