Christmas Concerts

Well done to all of the young people and staff who worked so hard to put on 3 amazing christmas concerts at Christ Church. We heard outstanding high quality performances from all of our ensembles with groups tackling some extremely challenging repertoire.

Music Centre Christmas Party

We finished off a busy term with 45 of our young people enjoying a bowling party at the Royal Quays. It was great to see so many wearing their new hoodies!

Hoodies, t shirts and other merchandise can be purchased from the centre.

Easy Fundraising

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be raising a free donation for North Tyneside Music Centre?

There are nearly 3,000 retailers on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's – it doesn't cost you a penny extra!

It's really simple, all you have to do is:

1. Join.

Head to and sign up for free.

2. Shop.

Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping.

3. Raise.

After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and North Tyneside Music Centre will be really grateful for your donations.

Thank you for your support.

Tuck Shop

Tuckshop is a well loved part of the Langdale Music Centre experience and also raises valuable funds for all the groups, but we need help to keep it going.

It was formally run by Foymint and a small band of loyal helpers, but Foymint has now been wound down and fundraising, including the tuckshop, will all be organised by the Music Hub. Without helpers from among current parents the tuck shop service may not be able to continue.

Can YOU offer half an hour on 1 or 2 Saturdays each term to sell at the Tuck Shop?

We also need someone who has a little time to help with the buying of stock.

Please contact Katie Jones, Kaye Rudd or Julie Dorr if you feel able to help or would like some more information.
