Stockton Globe is ATG’s new flagship music and comedy arena, due to open in early 2021, it is an exciting project for SPACE to be working on. It has revealed its £28 million restoration with a selection of hotly anticipated music and comedy shows.
The historic 3,000+ capacity North East venue is currently being restored to its former Art Deco glory and has been revealed with a fly-through CGI video showcasing how stunning the venue will look. Features have been highlighted which includes flexible standing and seated configuration, new purpose-built bars, VIP areas, dressing room sites, orchestra pits and an additional 200 capacity gig venue and café bar called The Link.
The redevelopment has given attention to a modern audience with exceptional customer and artist experience as well as a £1.8 million technical infrastructure and digital ticketing system.
It is re-opening in 2021, 45 years since the last live performance. The Globe will be a massive asset for Stockton’s economy and projects to attract up to 200,000 visitors per year, bringing millions of pounds into the local economy each year.
Restoring this prized asset is key to the development of Stockton and will create the biggest live entertainment venue between Newcastle and Leeds. Its restoration has been led and funded by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council with support from a £4.5 million National Lottery grant via The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The Stockton Globe is due to be complete in April 2021 and will be run by the world’s leading operator of live entertainment venues, Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG).
