General / Globe Theatre Stockton

 The Globe Theatre is set for revival 
Stockton-based Jomast Developments Ltd has announced it will begin its £4 million restoration of the historic Globe to its 1930s splendour within weeks, for use as a live entertainment venue for music, comedy and other events.


With its 2,500 capacity, the Globe will be the largest indoor auditorium between Leeds and Newcastle. 


The rejuvenated Globe will play a key part of Stockton Borough Council’s regeneration of the northern part of Stockton High Street, where it will become a cultural and entertainment hub for the town.  Jomast will also work closely with the Council on the restoration of the historic parts of the Grade II-listed building.


The project already has planning and listed building consent and contractors are expected to move on site in April.


When built in 1935, The Globe was one of Britain's biggest theatres, presenting music, cinema, variety theatre and an annual pantomime.  Status Quo were the final rock band to play there in December 1974, followed soon after by the London Philharmonic Orchestra in early 1975 before it finally closed its doors in 1996 after two decades as a bingo hall.


The restored Globe will create 23 new permanent and 72 construction jobs.  Each year, an estimated 82,500 visitors will spend almost £2.5 million in the town centre, supporting up to 130 extra local jobs.  It will include:


A main auditorium with a box office, approximately 675 seats or space for 1,700 standing and 808 balcony seats.
Bars in the auditorium and on the first floor.
A café bar, VIP area second box office in an adjacent High Street property.
Dressing rooms and other ‘back of house’ facilities.


Events such as the Stockton International Riverside Festival have steadily raised the cultural reputation of Stockton and the Tees Valley.  The restored Globe will further boost this image by complementing existing venues such as Middlesbrough Town Hall, Stockton’s Arc, Parish Church and Georgian Theatre and facilities like the Green Dragon Studios.


To operate The Globe, Jomast will create a specialist management company to present around 30 live music concerts, 15 comedy performances and 20 other events a year.


Stuart Monk, Managing Director of Jomast, said:  "I am very excited at the prospect of seeing the Globe regain its place as a leading live entertainment venue for the North East region.


“Jomast and Stockton Council have worked closely together to consider various options to secure The Globe’s future.  The current popularity of live music and a massive 7.5 million people living within two hours’ drive clearly made restoration as a performance venue the best way forward.


“I would like to thank the Council for its support, without which this scheme could not have gone ahead.  They clearly recognise its importance to the town centre economy and the opportunity it offers.

“Our initial response from operators and event bookers has been very positive.  The restoration is a major undertaking and we are now mobilising for a start on site.”


Councillor Bob Cook, Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Development, said: "This is fantastic news for Stockton.  Everyone who remembers the Globe in its heyday will be excited at its return, which will also bring music and other entertainment to a whole new generation of fans.


“The restored Globe Theatre will be more than simply a magnificently restored building.  The Council’s investment will both safeguard the building’s many historic features and enable a major step forward in regenerating Stockton’s town centre to go ahead. 


“The Globe is more than a much-loved landmark in Stockton Town Centre – it is a major part of the region’s cultural heritage.  Its return as a performance venue will boost the growth of the whole town centre by developing the evening economy and creating jobs.”


Leader of Stockton Council, Councillor Ken Lupton, added:  "As a locally-based business with successful regeneration interests in Stockton, I am delighted Jomast has committed to this scheme.  The Globe is a splendid building in the heart of the town, fondly remembered by many and with enormous potential for the future.  Its return is long overdue.


“The entertainment industry has moved on hugely since Status Quo played their final chord.  Live music and comedy are now bigger business than ever and a venue of this size will put Stockton well and truly back on the entertainment map."
