The town’s a stage

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

THERE was some­thing for ev­ery­one as a new mu­sic and com­edy fes­ti­val took over Stock­ton.

Stock­ton Stages brought three days of na­tional and lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment to the streets.

And while the weather didn’t al­ways play along - heavy rain hit the town on Satur­day - the first fes­ti­val of its kind was a suc­cess with crowds.

Head­lined by mu­sic and com­edy acts from the likes of Rus­sell Kane, The Sher­locks and El­iza and The Bear across ARC, The Ge­or­gian Theatre, Ku Bar and The Sto­ry­tellers, Stock­ton Stages also played host to some free town cen­tre events in­clud­ing mass karaoke, a fam­ily com­edy stage, a pe­cu­liar town cen­tre walk, a records fair - and the premier of Mike McGrother’s Com­mu­nity Pub Opera – Of Rogues and of Hon­est Men.

The show fea­tured a unique twist - you not only got an evening of en­ter­tain­ment, but the chance to buy items from the set.
