As many of you already know we are now in the process of winding down our operations in Blandford Square. We are fast approaching the end of our lease and although we love the building and are proud of what has been achieved over the last 4 years it is no longer financially viable for us to continue to operate in such a large space. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to making this a really fantastic venue and continued to support Globe through, exhibiting,volunteering, visiting, taking part and giving moral support when things got tough. This period has seen reduced funding and a decrease in staffing but also a time where we have strengthened our partnerships and worked with a host of other arts organisations to contribute to the programme providing great opportunities for artists to exhibit and fantastic experiences for visitors old and new.
We are very fortunate to have secured new premises in Commercial Union House, we will have great street frontage and be located next to Tyneside Cinemas Film School. There will of course be a transition period and we will be working in partnership with Vane Gallery to host our next major exhibition in January. George Chakravarthi exhibition, Thirteen, originally commissioned by the RAC to mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth. Evoking death drama and identity Chakravarthi re-imagines thirteen Shakespearean characters who met their ends through suicide. Alongside this show we will be hosting the National Suicide Prevention conference taking place on 23rd January. More details to follow.
celebrate our time in Blandford Square we are delighted to mark the
occasion with a night of audio visual stimulation curated by Parastatic

events this evening promises to be a one off and we hope you are able to
join us to make it an event to remember. Please note this is a ticketed
event, with proceeds going to the Band/Artists and the bar to Globe
