Venue Hire

Emmanuel College open for Sports and Fitness bookings

Emmanuel College’s indoor and outdoor facilities are open for community and grassroots sports use.

Our proximity to Newcastle, Gateshead, the Metrocentre, Team Valley and just two minutes from the A1 – along with ample on-site parking and excellent accessibility for all guests – makes Emmanuel College a convenient venue for the people of the North East and beyond.

Emmanuel College has built an unrivalled reputation for welcoming sports clubs large and small. We now offer a handy 24-hour web bookings and management system – SchoolHire.  Here you can view the spaces that are available, make enquiries, check up-to-date slot  availability, make booking requests (either one-off or weekly) and manage your account.  All at a time convenient to you.
