What's a Caper?

A regular mini-festival takeover of a venue. ALL IN ONE NIGHT, ALL UNDER ONE ROOF!

What Will Be There?

Our Caper events are full of fun! This includes some amazing chefs and food vendors, brilliant bars, the areas best musicians, fun-filled comedy and even some awesome shopping experiences!

Yeah, it’s a lot isn’t it? Well what’s more is we deliver you all of this under one roof, for one single ticket price – pretty good eh?

Great Food

When it comes to food at The Caper, we’ve assembled some of the region’s most celebrated chefs as our top-class guest Caper operators.

At each Caper, one of them leads a team of their favourite up-and-coming colleagues, producing an amazing array of the best the North East has to offer.

And fear not, being the best doesn’t mean having to be the most expensive: there will be gastronomic treats for all purses!

Brilliant Bars

Worried you won’t get a drink at The Caper? Don’t be – we make sure there are a great selection of bars throughout the venue!

For example, at BALTIC you can expect the Riverside Bar opening onto its terrace overlooking the Tyne, to our pop-up cocktail bar on Level 5 serving Caperers chilling out, listening to some top jazz, and taking in the incredible views, you won’t be disappointed!

Amazing Live Music

Scratch the surface and the depth of local talent in the North East is amazing! Who knew? Well, we all did in fact!

We’re all about celebrating local talent at The Caper, that’s why we have some of the best local, regional, and national talent performing at our events.

You can check out the lineup for the next caper here. Plus, don’t forget to follow our social media for the latest updates or check out our past Capers page to see who has already been there!

When they are taking a break, our fab DJs will be playing anything for your dancing  delight from modern classics to afro-beat…

Fun-Filled Entertainment & Shopping

As well as great food, fantastic bars, and excellent music, every Caper also has its own programme of other stuff to get stuck into.

This includes some of the area’s top comedians, dance-lessons, films, and Live Art for starters!

A veritable sweetshop for grown-ups, it can’t be true can it? Oh yes it can, but only in the North East!

You’ll be able to spend, spend, spend (only if you want to!) at some of the best vintage and designer stalls you’ll find anywhere!
