There is a lot of info on this site, all of it super easy to find and read. Do feel free to have a good mooch about & see how we’ve got on, in our never ending, obsessive quest to make a difference, by turning people on & adding lasting value & diversity to nightlife in Newcastle.
Who we are…
Basically the deal with us is, we’ve run Clubs up here longer than anyone else & have stayed completely independent, evolving outside of & parallel to, what most people perceive to be the Newcastle ’scene’. World Headquarters is nothing like any other place in this City.
We use the established media as little as possible, existing on word of mouth, recommendation & just being generally friendly, positive & consistent in our things. We operate firmly outside of the corporate mainstream, in terms of both our music, all the diverse & different events we promote at World Headquarters Club & the cutting edge arts projects our building facilitates.
To find out more about WHQ Club or Hiring the Venue click the tags at the top of the page & they will tell you all that & all about our fantastic weekends, top notch coming events & our unique, spiritually uplifting groove.
Hitting the History & Culture tag, will give you all the background to exactly how & why, we’ve worked so hard to build & evolve a girl friendly, all inclusive, credible & cosmopolitan alternative to Newcastle’s stereotyped nightlife, out of 80’s boredom, a strong desire for racial harmony, hard work & a big box of fab records.
Please feel free & Contact Us with anything you’d like to know or say, we’d love to hear from you. All pictures shown on the site are captioned & some of them will enlarge as you click them.
Have a nice visit, take time to go deep & thanks again, for thinking of us & popping in to see all our mad things. Almost forgot..! So you can recognise us, here’s our most recent staff photo…
