Thank you... please read on to find out more about Tees Music Alliance...


We are Tees Music Alliance a not-for-profit organisation operating for the benefit of musicians, their audiences, supporting industries and community groups.

Our primary focus is to play our part in building a thriving live music scene in Teesside - underpinned with a strong sense of social responsibility.  We do this through our premises and activities - which are run on a not-for-profit basis, with all income being re-cycled to provide other services and events.

We provide opportunities for volunteers to get involved with what we do and we welcome their contributions and enthusiasm.  

Our premises and activities include a Recording & Rehearsal facility Green Dragon Studios, two Live music venues The Georgian Theatre and The Green Room and a music festival Stockton Calling – a multi-venue spanning music spectacular that takes place in the heart of Stockton on Tees.

Artists looking to play at one of our venues or events should read this advice page before contacting us.

In 2017 our wonderful venue, The Georgian Theatre, re-opened following a £1.4M refurbishment... the theatre now has its own website - which can be accessed here

  • Our Mission Statement reflects what we, as an organisation, believes in and what we want to achieve...

    Our Vision

    Developing, Promoting and Enriching through Music

    Our Mission…

    To inspire, empower and engage people of all backgrounds by developing, promoting and enriching their access to music - from rehearsals and recordings; to gigs, events, festivals, volunteering and learning opportunities.

    Our Values…

    We believe in…

  • Our admissions policy means that younger music fans can come along to most of our events (we'll tell you if it's an 18+ event)... We believe that we form our opinions of music at an early age and that once kids get the live music 'bug' it stays with them.

    If your child is under 16 years of age - they can come to our shows accompanied by you or another responsible adult.  Once they hit 16, they can come in unaccompanied.

  • Tees Music Alliance has been awarded ‘bronze status’ for its commitment to deaf and disabled music fans, following recognition by Attitude is Everything – the charity that improves Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences artists and the music industry and operates a nationwide Charter of Best Practice.

    TMA achieved its award for the facilities and services on offer at The Georgian Theatre, which underwent a £1.4M refurbishment during 2016 / 17.

  • Located within Green Dragon Studios, Stockton-On-Tees, The Green Room is a unique 60 capacity “micro-venue”. 

    Opened in March 2012 The Green Room was created to provide, national, regional and local artists with an intimate performance space. 

    Notable artists to have played The Green Room include, Bob Log III, Marika Hackman, Luke Sital-Singh, The Family Rain, Rob Heron and the Teapad Orchestra as well as local artists By Toutatis, Kingsley Chapman  & The Murder and The Broken Broadcast.

  • Formed back in March 1986 as Middlesbrough Music Collective – then merging with sister organisation Stockton Music & Arts Collective (S.M.A.C) in 2006 to form Tees Music Alliance.

    TMA is charitable, not for profit social enterprise operating for the benefit of our community.

  • 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. 




Gain confidence, experience and meet some great people by volunteering with TMA.
