The former men’s exercise yard has been sympathetically renovated to create a striking one-of-a-kind venue.

Located in the heart of the city in the remarkable heritage listed location of Newcastle's original police station and lockup, The Lock-Up now operates as a contemporary arts centre and events space. Known as The Yard, the former excercise yard makes for a stunning and intimate venue.

Impressions of the former exercise yard still linger with patina paint, traces of etched graffiti, overhead bars and the solid iron doorway acting as reminders of its history.

Modern additions such as the automatic weather-sensitive louvered roof, new raised floor and wooden stage ensure The Yard is a character-filled yet functional space.

The Yard is perfect for small to medium size events including intimate wedding ceremonies and receptions.
The great acoustics and size of the space also make it suitable for intimate live music.

Hire of The Yard also includes use of The Lock-Up’s entry foyer. The foyer can be utilised for event registration, cocktails or general overflow space for The Yard.
