Following the announcement of redundancy consultations at Northern Stage, McKenna’s Restaurant, which has served food and drinks at the theatre for 25 years, is closing, owner Alan McKenna announced on 6 September.
In a statement, he said that, with the uncertainty around when the theatre will reopen, it has proved financially impossible to continue. He has tentative plans to reopen the bistro at Alnwick Playhouse in November.
