Stockton’s Globe is due to reopen their doors after an impressive £28 million restoration next year. The highly anticipated reopening will see performers including dance troupe Diversity and Paloma Faith take to the stage, with more announcements coming today after an impressive digital launch which gave virtual attendees a first look at the venue (albeit in virtual reality format).

Further shows announced today, which go on sale on Friday 23rd October, include The Waterboys (12th October 2021) Steve Hackett (15th October 2021), Jools Holland (11th November 2021), The House & Garage Orchestra (13th November 2021) and Midge Ure (14th November 2021). Comedy is well-represented too, performances are due from Adam Kay (1st July 2021), Chris Ramsey (29th October 2021), John Bishop (26th & 27th November 2021), Jon Richardson (20th November 2021) and Ross Noble (date TBC 2021).

Aside from the big names, we’re particularly excited about The Link, a smaller space which could play host to emerging artists and local up and comers. Jo Ager, the venue’s general manager, explains how the venue will fit in with what’s already on offer in the town. “The Link will be programmed to support grassroots musicians, working with the likes of Tees Music Alliance we’ll be looking at a programme which doesn’t clash with other venues. And I’m really keen to get some of those artists who are stepping up to support bigger artists. The Link is a key piece in supporting that smaller grassroots industry.”
