The Globe, 11 Railway Street, Newcastle NE4 7AD

We are a community cooperative set up to support the learning, performance and development of jazz, related music and the arts. Based at the Globe in Newcastle upon Tyne, we are the first cooperative in the UK to own a music venue and education centre. We put on gigs and courses there and at other venues.

Our inspiration is Keith Crombie, known locally as The Jazz Man, who died in December 2012.
