Globe Theatre

Jump to navigation Jump to search


A brick structure originally opened as the Globe Theatre on 24 June 1889 in 47/49 Fox Street. This theatre was destroyed in a fire on 7 September 1889 after three seasons.

In June 1892 it was reopened as The Globe, but gradually degenerated to become a second-rate music hall and eventually closed.

On the 1st December 1894 it once more re-opened, but now known as the Empire Palace of Varieties.


Only a reference on p.124 of Fletcher, 1994
