The call went something like this,

"I have the keys to the Globe, do you fancy coming along?"

"er....yes please!"

I'd have been a fool to say "No" to such opportunity right?

The wonderful Cinema Treasures will give you any history you might need of this lovely old girl. Needless to say it looks great inside, all that deteriorating grandeur I know you all love so much.

Work starts soon to refurb the theatre as a live venue, which is great news.

I shall let the pictures do the talking...

With huge thanks to Industry :thumbsup:

The pigeons have had a lot of poo based fun in here, in particular the projection room was a real stomach churner, so much so I have no pics of it (it was pretty much stripped anyway).

The way to poo-land...

And the way to the other poo-land...

Looking back at the circle from the stage area - you have to love those globe lamp shades...
