Hodkin and Jones have reinstated the decorative plasterwork at The Globe, a Grade II listed art deco theatre in Stockton-on-Tees, England.
The Globe has undergone major restoration work after years of neglect and the ceiling falling into disrepair. The current building was originally built in 1935 and was a premier venue which hosted many famous acts including The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.
The theatre, which has been closed since 1997, has managed to maintain many of its original ornamental features and has been described by the Theatres Trust as "an excellent example of its kind" and was on its “at risk” register. In 2010, it was announced that the building would undergo a £4 million restoration and work has been ongoing since 2017 with funding from The National Lottery and Stockton Borough Council. Due to reopen in 2021, the building will reopen as a venue for music, comedy and other events - keep checking this page for project updates.
Hodkin and Jones have so far manufactured and supplied a new balcony front, art deco cornice, ornate panels, decorative gills and friezes. We have over 150 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of fibrous plaster mouldings and can match any coving no matter how complicated the design is.
