Globe’s re-build one year on


Palmer­ston North’s com­mu­nity com­plex, the Globe Theatre, is cel­e­brat­ing. A whole year has tran­spired since the mas­sive re-build which saw the ad­di­tion of a new 100 seat in­ti­mate theatre along­side the main 200 seat venue. Dur­ing the year this new smaller au­di­to­rium has seen many suc­cess­ful per­form­ing arts pro­duc­tions, all com­ple­ment­ing the events held in the larger au­di­to­rium. The en­larged foyer has also proved an invit­ing func­tion space and is used for busi­ness, com­mu­nity and pri­vate func­tions. The Globe has worked hard to en­sure that all venues can by hired by lo­cal com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions at very com­pet­i­tive rates, and in­vite the public to come and check out the fa­cil­i­ties if plan­ning an event. Theatre man­ager Bruce War­wick says he is happy to talk to any­one and show them around the fa­cil­i­ties. “The smaller theatre has the ad­van­tage of be­ing able to be con­verted into a flat floor space, so per­fect for set­ting up ta­bles. Come and have a look, you won’t be dis­ap­pointed at what the Globe has to of­fer you!”
