THE DAWN OF A NEW EMPIRE

Middlesbrough Empire set to reopen on Monday 21st June

It’s The Dawn Of A New Empire as Tangerine is set to host The Middlesbrough Empire’s welcome back party on Monday 21st June.
The grand reopening of Middlesbrough’s majestic palace of varieties, live music music and late night entertainment venue will feature the infamous Enchanted Circus with big-on-the-beat pop, dance, indie and feel good anthems plus all of the freshly-squeezed Tangerine wonderments, with live cabaret and musical acts.

Sadly, venues have been closed for over a year but The Empire has used the down time to install a brand new state of the art sound system aided by the expertise of top industry sound
engineers Sid Rogerson, Jonathan “Diggers” Digby and Kim Watson who have worked in live and studio settings with the likes of The Prodigy, Girls Aloud and Blondie.
Tickets for the opening night sold out within 2 hours of going on sale but if you missed out then The Empire has 3 more offerings during opening week with three more massive events.

On Thursday June 24th the indie/alt/trash midweek party “Creeps” moves into The Empire after an 11 year run at our sister venue Medicine Bar.

Friday the 25th will kick off “The Dead Rebel Club” featuring 3 rooms of DJs and live performances from touring acts and local grassroots artists in the main auditorium and Saturday the 26th will play host to the return of “Shangri-la”: the super-sized Saturday night complete with live theatrical performances, cabaret side shows and 4 rooms of floor filling Empire sized anthems.

The Empire’s managing director Ashley Wem said “As the light at the end of the tunnel draws nearer, I feel just as invigorated and excited to open the doors of The Empire as I did when we
first opened them in 1993. Grants from the Cultural Recovery Fund and the Tees Valley Combined Authority have helped us improve the venue while we’ve been closed, so with that
and the balance of youth and experience in our team, we’re going to be bigger and better than we’ve ever been.”

This will be the first time that The Empire has opened its doors since the beginnings of the COVID pandemic in March 2020 and the venue has taken the decision to make all opening events ticketed with safety in mind.

MIDDLESBROUGH'S PALACE OF VARIETIES

Built in 1897 as a music hall The Middlesbrough Empire has played host to a variety of performers including Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, The Scissor Sisters, The Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian! Since he bought the venue 1991 Barry Faulkner has transformed the derelict building into one of the countries finest venues/nightclubs. The Empire retains all it's former glory with 3 floors dedicated to style and music.
