The Globe Theatre Renovation | Stockton | U/C

FANTASTIC NEWS!

Quote:
Plans to Revive Teesside's famous Globe Theatre Unveiled...

Plans to fully restore and relaunch one of the North East’s most historic and best known live music venues have been announced by Jomast.
A planning application has been submitted to Stockton Borough Council to bring back the famous Globe Theatre as a prestigious live performance and entertainment venue with an audience capacity of 2500.
The Globe, located on Stockton High Street, was one of the region’s best known music venues during the 1950’s and 60’s and attracted major artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly and Cliff Richard. Originally built as a cinema in 1913, the building is still renowned for its art-deco architecture and was last used as a bingo hall before closing its doors in 1993.
However, if planning permission is given, The Globe could once again see the return of many top performance artists to Teesside and reinvent Stockton as one of the UK’s most cultural and popular live music centres.
Proposals submitted by Jomast include a multimillion pound restoration programme to retain all major elements of the existing building as used in the past as well as upgrading and installing new seating, catering and washroom facilities. It also includes extending the venue and converting an adjacent vacant property into a modern bar and bistro.
Managing Director, Stuart Monk, said, “The Globe is a very impressive and iconic building with an exceptionally rich history in live music and entertainment. We intend to completely restore it and bring it back to its former glory.
“The present external appearance and character of the buildings will be fully retained and preserved and the internal layout will be largely unchanged in order to maintain the existing space and architectural features. However, we do intend to significantly improve facilities and add a new bar area in the stalls as well as extend the existing building to create a high quality bar and bistro for pre-performance and daytime use.
“Our development plans are substantial but if granted, The Globe could once again be at the forefront of the region’s music scene and play an integral part in the revival and regeneration of Stockton town centre."

This end of Stockton high street could be brilliant; Now with Maxwell's corner refurbished, this soon to be as well as Manhattan's over the road, which they state in the article (adjacent property), it could start to really improve Stockton high street.

This is great news!The Globe is a fantastic building ,with a fantastic history, at last its going to be brought back into use.
This could potentially be a great venue if done right and they dont interfere with the fabric of the building too much.

Yes exactly, but will Stockton be able to sustain both the Arc and the Globe, i'm not sure.

Where did you get that picture from? Got one of that Manhattans over the road which is also to be developed?

Thanks.

I'm sure i've read that it also includes extending it as well, i don't see where they could extend it? There isn't much space too.

I hope this does happen, and i can't wait to see it all done up, i think it could potentially become one of the most popular buildings in Teesside if done properly.

In terms of free land, I guess they've only got the rear of the building, and if they can, the pathway to the side. I hope the building can be saved and the investment is there for the plans to proceed.

Yes, probably at the car park at the rear? I wouldn't of thought they'd be allowed to extend onto the alleyway.

Thanks for posting that, interesting, seems as its really in there best interests to make this happen as well, and hopefully they can help give it a boost and get this done. I see The Empire is listed as "low risk" as well.

Think the decision is made in early Feb. so sounds promising. Plans seem brilliant.

Did you see the planning app link i posted for North Shore in the North Shore thread? Also seems good.

I think the MBC planning site is still broken isn't it?

The Globe Theatre is usually locked up tight and has been for nearly twenty years. James Holgate, project co-ordinator with Jomast, took a visit inside with the local Gazette. See the article and interior photos here:

I'd love to get in it to get some photos! Probably the most exciting project going on in Teesside, can't wait to see it restored! Like to see a good lighting scheme on a night lighting up the fantastic features of the building.

With a bit of luck it should attract some more investment for that end of the High Street

Not just that End of the Highstreet, the whole of Stockton! Needs it, and if they can attract some quality acts this alone could boost Stockton for many years to come.
