Newcastle’s Globe Gallery is relocating, and to mark the end of an era and the beginning of a new one, a night of music, art and celebration will take place at its current premises, 53-57 Blandford Square (directly opposite the Discovery Museum) on Saturday 29th November.

Starting from 7pm, there will be music from shoegazing Krautrockers Parastatic, who will be showcasing material from their upcoming second album, following on from their critically acclaimed debut Lost Highway. They’ll be accompanied by brooding psych rockers Keep Breathing, who have just returned from recording with legendary producer Ed Buller (Spiritualized, Suede, Pulp). There will also be drums/ bass/ keyboards from trio The Long Lonesome Go, and DJs from acclaimed radio show Radio Oscillations. Video installations on the second floor will showcase work from artists including painter-turned-video-artist Tessa Green, and selected previous exhibitors from the Gallery’s past.

The Globe is about to enter its 20th year, having been based in the former bank on Blandford Square for the last four. It launches in new premises at Commercial Union House in January with Thirteen, a Shakespeare-inspired collection by George Chakravarthi. It’s fitting it sees its last four years out in style – all the world’s a stage after all.

The Globe Gallery relocating party takes place on Saturday 29th November at the current Globe Gallery, Newcastle.
