The Cumberland Arms (upstairs)
James Place Street
Newcastle Upon Tyne

The venue is upstairs at The Cumberland Arms.
There is a ramp on the left hand side of the building as you look at it.
The stairs are through the Music Room - downstairs on the right as you look at it - see diagram of downstairs floor plan of The Cumberland Arms.
If all goes to plan, a Ukes4Fun Elf should be positioned at the front door to help you find your way and another one will be at the top if the ramp to greet you if you come in that way.
Free parking on James Place Street and the field next to the Cumberland – but you might like to be good at reversing to get back out if you park on James Place Street!
Free parking behind and above The Cumberland Arms on Stephen Street.
Free parking across the main road in the public car park by the Kentucky Fried Chicken, off Shields Road, and even more behind Morrison’s Supermarket (Shields Road).

For public transport, travel times, etc. - I would have said "Transport Direct" but the Government has scrapped it and there is - to date - nothing to replace it. Sorry.
