Newly refurbished venue Stockton Globe announces reopening plans
The vintage venue is back in action!
A newly revamped theatre, the Stockton Globe, is set to re-open.
The once-iconic venue in the northern town will return to welcoming audiences, following a £28+ million restoration. It was originally designed by Percy L Browne, opening in 1935. The 1650-seater space (with removable seating for a maximum capacity of 3000) will now also boast a 250-seater venue next door.
There will be a restoration of the '30s decor, as well as a full orchestra space created. Owned and overseen by the Ambassador Theatre Group, the theatre's initial line-up includes a touring piece from Diversity, a Strictly Come Dancing special, a Paloma Faith concert, an appearance from Adam Kay and comedy from Chris Ramsey, Jon Richardson and John Bishop. Jools Holland and Midge Ure will also perform live music.
