Background Information. Purchased in 2014, The Globe was the first cooperatively owned music venue in the UK. Since then, years of hard work have resulted in a much loved, intimate live music venue , run by a small number of dedicated staff and a large band of volunteers. The diversity of the events programme has been exceptional , encompassing a wide range of live music including Indie, Jazz, Folk, Rock, Americana, Soul, World and Classical music, plus an extensive programme of music classes, workshops and jam sessions. There is a genuine cooperative ethos and welcoming atmosphere, and the staff, volunteers and regular visitors all feel part of The Globe musical community.
