New openings in the North for 2023

Johnny James, Managing Editor

From whopping cultural hubs to grassroots arts venues, there are some exciting new openings on the tip of the North’s tongue as we inch deeper into 2023.

In this guide we round-up our highlights, from one of Europe’s most anticipated arts and culture venues (Factory International) to a new beacon of avant-garde theatre (Theatre Delicatessen Sheffield) via drinking and dining destinations guaranteed a place in 2023’s cool club (Boxpark Liverpool; Stack Newcastle; Lucky Cat Manchester).

Impatience has led us to include the odd venue that’s due to open a little after 2023, but most of the places you’ll read about below are set to open – or momentously re-open – this year. We can’t wait to get out there and experience what each one’s got to offer.
