The restoration of Stockton’s historic Globe music venue has been a long time coming. The Grade II Art Deco building on Stockton’s High Street has been empty since last closing its doors in 1993, but the world-renowned Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) will be breathing fresh life into the building, reopening it as a multi-purpose live performance space in 2021.

Today marks the announcement of the first act to be confirmed to play the famous venue; multi-platinum selling musician and songwriter Paloma Faith will perform on Saturday 9th October 2021 in support of her new album, Infinite Things, due for release on 13th November.

It’s hoped the building’s restoration will be finished by April 2021, and a flurry of line-up announcements are promised in the coming weeks. The venue will be hosting an innovative virtual industry showcase event next month to show off the Globe to industry representatives from across the world, hoping to put the venue back on the map.

The Globe’s General Manager, Jo Ager, said: “We are completely delighted to reveal Paloma Faith as the first show on sale at Stockton Globe and we simply cannot wait to virtually showcase the venue and the amazing programme we have in store. This is the start of something really special; as we move forward, we will continue to focus on booking the best music, comedy and family performances in the business, and truly bringing the stars back to Stockton.”

Tickets for Paloma Faith’s gig will go on sale on Friday 2nd October, available from this link.
