Title: Stockton globe struggling already

 What a fucking surprise……….

Saw this coming from day one. The acts are second or third rate and the prices are mental for one of the poorest parts of the country. The tax payer will lose millions when it shuts.

I was sounded out about a job there when it was announced they were re-jigging it, was invited up, given the grand tour and told things were moving quickly and it was a highly ambitious project to fill the gap for a major venue between Leeds and Newcastle/Sunderland. Then heard nothing for a long time!

Usually better pay and conditions than Technical staff!

Looking at programme it's pretty much same old, same old as a lot of ATG venues, with notable exception of Nick Cave! Getting bigger names on shouldn't be the problem, ATG usually find somewhere to fill dates on tours. Downside is location, days of bands turning up with backline and plugging into house system are long gone, and this place is a one truck at a time town centre load in and if I remember correctly once the kit is in the building is where the real headaches will start. It is a lovely old place and it's good to see it being put to its original use but a new build on an out of town brownfield site would have been a far better option. I might even have applied for toilet attendent!

I've had a long weekend away in London; I return as boss and Lord of All I See today to be greeted by a splendidly blocked ladies' bog that no-one else has been able to dislodge. Happy days

I think it's been and gone. A couple of days beforehand they slashed the ticket price to try to get bums on seats - which understandably pissed off people who had paid full price.

Now people are saying they won't buy tickets for future events just in case the prices get slashed again.  :lost:

People running it are clowns.

Just seen a post from them on FB

Are you a Local Hero? 25% off for teachers, social care workers, prison officers, armed forces and ‘blue light’ professionals.

Only applies to certain shows, but another sign that it's not going as planned. Local council tax payers have put over 20 million into this.............

Giving discounts to these people is a bad thing? Many businesses do that.

It's ATG, now the biggest mover and shaker in British theatres/venues since Clear Channel took a step back. They will no doubt have various options on what to do with the venue after a fixed term. Theatre wise it's up against Sunderland Empire, the nearest No1 touring venue, and Darlington Civic a well established and successful smaller venue catering largely for the middle aged, middle classes. From what I remember of the tour I was given off the place, the venue size is good but location and access bad. First priority would've been electrics, then flying and rigging with load bearing of the grid the main thing, even with no flys you could still happily spot line any trussing toured in, so plenty of rock n roll, but not much else. I reckon ATG will have an option of about three years to see what they can do with place, either make a proper go of it or sell off to another operator like HQ. Be interesting to see what happens, but it won't be quick!
