The Link – a multi-functional space adjoining the newly restored Stockton Globe – opens this month, subject to any amended government guidance. Intended to become a creative community hub for the high street, it will be a café, bar and entertainment space in its own right alongside the iconic main venue, and plans to host an exciting programme of live acts on weekends during July and August. It launches on Thursday 15th July with a livestream featuring North East musicians including Luke Royalty, Jodie Nicholson and Shakk, hosted by BBC Introducing’s Rianne Thompson. A free programme of events will follow at the venue throughout their first month.

“Live At The Link provides an intimate gig and performance space for local emerging artists, and will help to develop the talent pipeline,” says general manager Jo Ager. “We are working closely with local venues and promoters to make sure this fits in with the vibrant grassroots scene in Stockton and Teesside. We will be exploring working with groups in the community to create a creative and safe space.”

The Live At The Link programme will work with BBC Introducing, Tees Music Alliance and other grassroots organisations in the area as part of their evening programming, and also offering a light food menu during the day.

Tune in to the livestream from 5.30pm on Thursday 15th July via the venue’s website or on their Facebook page.
