Summerhill Bowling Club is located at the top (West) end of Summerhill Square. It includes two championship-size bowling greens alongside other substantial open spaces. Consultation amongst members and residents (ongoing) will inform future uses of the green areas, but community interests will be a priority. The site also has a large car-park.

Summerhill Pavilion, a spacious and characterful building, has just undergone essential renovation works, thanks to a capital grant from Newcastle City Council; recent works include the replacement of the roof, installation of a new bar and serving area, and new toilets.

Current Plans

We are currently working on plans to improve disabled access to the pavilion, including accessible WCs. Once fundraising and planning is complete, we hope to undertake the work in early 2018.

Hire The Pavilion for your event

Summerhill Pavilion, tucked away in the heart of a peaceful Georgian inner city square, is a wonderful venue for events of all kinds. Within easy walking distance of Central Station, St.James’s Park, the Discovery Museum, the Centre for Life and the Metro Radio Arena, it is available for private hire for daytime and evening events.

The hall is a perfect space for meetings, private parties, wedding receptions, workshops, ceilidhs (barn dances) and many other activities.
