Planning granted for Globe Theatre, Stockton

The first step in an ambitious vision to bring back The Globe Theatre in Stockton, England has been achieved after Stockton Borough Council passed multimillion pound development plans submitted by property developer, Jomast.

The decision boots major regeneration project plans, spearheaded by the theatre development in the heart of Stockton town centre and relaunches The Globe as one of the largest live entertainment and performance venues in the North East of England.

Plans passed by the Council include the preservation and restoration of the present external appearance and all major elements of the building as used in the past, extending the venue to allow for the upgrade and installation of new seating, bar, catering and washroom facilities and converting an adjacent vacant property into a modern bar and bistro. The internal layout will also be largely unchanged in order to maintain the existing space and architectural features.

Jomast Managing Director, Stuart Monk, commented, “This is an extremely positive step forward for Jomast, Stockton Borough Council and also for the region. There is a substantial amount of work to be done in order to finalise and deliver our vision for The Globe and we are now working closely with key partner agencies in order to start moving this project forward.”

The Globe, located on Stockton High Street, was one of the region’s best known music venues during the 1950’s and 60’s and attracted major artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly and Cliff Richard. And, with planning permission now granted, The Globe could once again see the return of many top performance artists to Teesside.

The project is also receiving massive encouragement from members of the public as in less than three weeks, more than 700 people have shown their support on social networking site, Facebook.
