Our Vision

The refurbished Globe auditorium and stage will create an adaptable Music and Comedy venue suitable for the following range of clients:

  • World-wide events promoters of popular musicians and comedians.

  • Local and regional businesses for conferencing and trade events.

  • Stockton-based groups for music and comedy productions.

The range of activities anticipated includes:

  • Popular music to a fully seated audience

  • Popular music to a standing stalls audience and seated circle area

  • Club nights

  • Light entertainment to a fully seated audience

  • Comedy to a fully seated audience

  • Community presentations using the stalls only or the stalls and circle



The key developments planned for the auditorium are:

  • restoration of the 1935 interior

  • raising and levelling of the stage floor

  • replacement of the stalls floor

  • introduction of a removable stalls seating system

  • renewal of the seating in the circle

  • introduction of bars within the stalls area

  • introduction of protected wheelchairs places when the stalls seats are removed

  • provision of a demountable stalls lighting and sound control position

  • renewal of the auditorium and stage lighting system

  • renewal of the auditorium heating and ventilation system

Audience capacity of 3000+ – Standing Stalls and seated Circle

A fully seated capacity of 1650, or 3000+ when stalls seating removed.


  • It is not intended to fit out the stage house for lyric theatre requirements but to provide limited facilities for music, comedy and other small scale supported presentations.

  • The new stage construction will be designed to allow for the storage of the stalls seating in the space under stage.
