Christmas and New Year 2021 opening hours

GO Gateshead leisure centres will be closed between 24 and 28 December and 31 December to 3 January, with reduced opening hours in place on other dates during the festive period.

The availability of leisure facilities continues to depend on our ability to provide essential council functions, including Covid response services. If demand for these services or staff absence levels increase, we may need to close our facilities at short notice. Leisure centre visitors can help us protect our staff and services by continuing to wear face coverings when moving around the building, keeping a safe distance from others and carrying out regular lateral flow tests.

As always, we're very grateful for your understanding and support. 2021 has been a difficult year and we'd like to thank you for your patience during the phased reopening of our leisure services. A huge thank you to our staff too, particularly those who have taken on alternative duties to support our communities throughout the pandemic.

From everyone at GO Gateshead, we wish you a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
