Boho Arts is a new charity, on a mission to lease and transform an unused, unloved property into a much loved, accessible creative arts hub in Newcastle. It’s in response to the very real problem of lack of workshop, rehearsal, and office space for artists in Newcastle – that’s affordable, easy to get to, and accessible.

The space we have found is in a great location, and will provide several practice rooms for rehearsals and to offer workshops to members of the public, offices and co-work spaces, digital facilities, a small flexible theatre (about 70 capacity), and a cafe-bar.

In October ’21, we formed as a limited company by guarantee with the charitable purpose “to advance the arts for the public benefit by the promotion in particular, but not exclusively, of the performing arts”. Having recently passed £5,00o in donations, we are now eligible and are seeking to be registered with the Charities Commission soon.

We’re working very hard to negotiate the lease, and to prepare for the start of the transformation. Funding is in place for a  feasibility study which is imminent and a crowdfunding campaign will start in April to help support the first stage of building work. There will be years of work ahead in developing the space to its full potential, but the structural arrangement is good to start with, and we’re aiming to be operating in the building in some form this summer.
