    Our Arts Council England supported audience development pilot - Reaching Out - will focus on two initial areas over the next 12 months - engaging with more people with a disability and engaging with more young people.  

  • Teesside music charity, Tees Music Alliance (TMA), has announced support from an internationally acclaimed artist in the lead up to a major refurbishment of their venue, The Georgian Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees.

  • Set in the heart of Stockton-On-Tees, The Georgian Theatre is the oldest surviving Georgian theatre in the country.

    In 1766, The Georgian Theatre began its life as a touring house on the northern circuit of theatres. The theatre fell into disuse and disrepair at some time during the 19th century and became a sweet factory until the late 1950s. 

    After a period of decline that followed, the local council acquired the property in the 1960s before a refurbishment saw it re-opened as a community building in 1980. 

  • Teesside music charity, Tees Music Alliance (TMA), could soon begin work on expanding and improving its venue, The Georgian Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees, as part of a major redevelopment being undertaken in partnership with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.

    The independent music promoters, celebrating 30 years of making music in 2016, have planned an exciting programme of works which would see the venue increase its audience capacity and opening hours – creating a fantastic new facility for live music lovers.
