New details on the huge return of Stack to Newcastle City Centre have been revealed as the venue has formally submitted plans to open in a new location before Christmas.

Earlier this month The Northern Echo reported how bosses at the much-loved venue were planning a return before Christmas after disappointment when the Pilgrim Street site was forced to close earlier this year.

The new plans will see the hugely-popular shipping container village pop-up in Stephenson’s Quarter, behind Central station and near to the home of Bongo Bingo at Boiler Shop.

Now new details have emerged revealing more about the plans, including the return of Hadrian’s Tipi.

The new venue would be open from 11am til midnight, seven days a week, including bank holidays, and would recreate the layout of the former site, with canopy covered tables around a stage area.

There are plans for four bars on the site on Forth Street, and a further five street food vendors, including a double tipi.

It is expected the plans will create 100 new jobs in the run up to the festive period.  

Unlike the previous Stack on Pilgrim Street, the temporary venue will be set on one level, but with one shipping container over the entrance to give the iconic Stack feel.

Bosses at Danieli Holdings, the company which owns Stack hope the venue will be ready before Christmas.

Speaking after the plans were first announced, Neill Winch, CEO of Danieli Group which owns Stack Newcastle said: “We were overwhelmed by the emotional response our customers shared about their sadness at the closure of STACK Newcastle in May, so we are very excited to be able to announce our plans which we hope will mean its return just in time to celebrate Christmas.”

“Our customers have been very vocal in letting us know that they would be delighted to see STACK come back sooner rather than later, which is why we have taken this opportunity to open a temporary scheme.      

“Plans are underway for a more permanent scheme, and we aim to release further details in the coming weeks, but in the meantime hope this news will be well received by our customers.”

Bringing the venue back to Newcastle is likely to be relatively easy, after The Northern Echo revealed last month how the shipping containers are being stored behind Stack’s sister venue in Seaburn.

The popular venue was forced to close in May to make way for a new HMRC office block being built on its former site where the city’s ODEON cinema once stood.
