The Globe Theatre was opened in November 1982. It is administered by a Trust Board on behalf of the Palmerston North City Council, and is available for hire.
The theatre comprises a stage, dressing rooms, foyer and auditorium. It has a seating capacity of 174 and a fully equipped kitchen for serving morning teas, afternoon teas and meals for up to 70. Bar facilities in the foyer area can be made available by arrangement.
With its central location and excellent parking facilities the well equipped modern theatre is capable of a variety of uses, including live shows, conferences, meetings, lectures, seminars and film screenings. Its close location makes it an ideal adjunct to the Centennial Convention Centre. The dressing rooms and foyer can easily be used for separate discussion groups and smaller conferences.
