The Winter Gardens Theatre in Morecambe was one of the classic venues for all the big names of Show Business from Victorian days up to the late1970's , when it started to show it's age a little bit, and required some quite costly renovation work.

Well worth a visit as the theatre is open for viewing most days even if there is no show on. Saved from demolition by a dedicated group of volunteers you get a warm welcome and a tour in return for a donation towards the restoration of this wonderful building. Increasing number of events from dance groups to wrestling, big bands... More

Beautiful building that has so much work done recently to restore it! There's so much going on, whether it's a weekend festival or fair or show. Or just call into the Parisian bar for a glass of prosecco or coffee & scones on a Sunday afternoon, there's sometimes a singer on too.

This is a magnificent building slowly being restored. Pay it a visit for a tour, attend a show, or go for a drink in the bar. As well as enjoying the fantastic building you will be helping to support the restoration work so that future generations can enjoy it as well, a win-win if ever there was one.

Upon entry to the building to see what was going on as part of the festival, we discovered that guided tours were available. We spoke to one of the organisers and... More

When we arrived after years of missing the opening hours and being disappointed every year we visit, my wife asked briefly the opening times Dan had just shut up, he saw our sadness and immediately offered us a quick tour. We had the most amazing time having an impromptu tour with him, telling us every bit of history and the... More
