Globe @ Blandford Square Opening Night

14th October, 2011

The Globe Gallery officially opened its new venue in Newcastle’s city centre on Friday 14 October. A result of many months work involving a team of volunteers and the Globe Gallery staff, the once Co-operative bank hosted three new exhibitions across four floors: a major fundraising auction; a showcase of the Business Collectors Network’s acquisitions; and a group show offering an insight into the professional development of artists who graduated from Newcastle University.


With a special live performance from Andrew Wilson, Let's Forget Everything and Get Drunk and music by Richard Phipps, the opening marked the beginning of a new era of exhibitions in Globe’s new venue since the extremely successful and well-supported Investors in Globe launch earlier this year.


An exciting start to Globe’s new chapter, thanks to everyone who attended and showed their support.
