Chance for sneek peek behind the scenes at half-finished Grade II-listed Globe building in Stockton
SOME of Stockton’s historic gems are opening their doors to the public as part of a national celebration of the nation’s culture.
There is expected to be interest in viewing the half-refurbished Globe Theatre which could become the largest indoor venue between Newcastle and Leeds if work is finished.
Heritage Open Days take place each September and allow people behind the scenes to explore historic buildings and monuments normally closed to the public.
The Grade II-listed, art deco Globe Theatre, which was part refurbished but is now waiting to see if lottery cash will be granted to finish the work, will be one of the buildings open from Thursday, September 12 to Saturday, September 14.
Limited spaces will be available at The Globe to enjoy a tour around part of the theatre and hear from local historian Barry Jones about the history of the building.
The tours will take place, starting from 153 Stockton High Street (next to The Globe Theatre) on Thursday, September 12, Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14 from 10am. Spaces are limited to 150 over the three days and are on a first come first served basis. To book a place contact Stockton Central Library on 01642-528079. Booking is essential and those securing a place are advised to wear sturdy footwear for the tour.
Other tours are available at Preston Park Museum, call 01642-524274 for more information.
