Welcome

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 - all of which are operated 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.

  • Hammers and trowels are being packed away by construction teams - as a much loved local venue prepares to re-launch itself onto the Teesside cultural scene.

    The Georgian Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees has been undergoing an incredible £1.4M refurbishment – and the charity which has run the venue for nearly 25 years, Tees Music Alliance (TMA), is chomping at the bit to make its return to action.

    TMA Chief Executive, Paul Burns, explains the excitement: 

  • Teesside music charity, Tees Music Alliance has been successful in attracting £37,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) as part of a year- long project celebrating the organisation’s history and that of an iconic local venue.

    During 2016, Tees Music Alliance celebrated 30 years since their formation.  It was also 250 years since the charity’s main premises - The Georgian Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees - was built.  Furthermore in 2016, works began on a £1.4M refurbishment of the venue.

  • There's not long left to go until The Georgian Theatre reopens. A nice, new venue needs a nice, new logo as well as a nice, new website (currently under construction but you can visit holding page here): http://www.georgiantheatre.co.uk/

  • 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 recently closed for a £1.4M refurbishment, taking place over the winter months.

  • The first headline band has been announced for next year’s Stockton Calling as Liverpool Britpop legends Cast who will headline ARC’s stage as part of Stockton’s annual one day music festival.

    With three top ten albums and ten top twenty hits under their belts - including, Fine Time, Alright and the now legendary Walk Away – the band continue to work hard and have recently recorded their sixth studio album, Kicking Up The Dust.

  • 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.
