STEP INSIDE THE ICONIC WINTER GARDENS

You’ll have noticed the Winter Gardens by now; you really can’t miss it. Standing proud against Morecambe’s beautifully sunny seaside backdrop, the building is simply stunning – but have you stepped inside yet? A catalyst at the heart of Morecambe’s regeneration, the aim of the Winter Gardens Preservation Trust’s (along with the help of the help of the Friends of the Winter Gardens) ongoing development project is to refurbish the existing theatre, highlighting its unique heritage and building on its strong tradition here in the town.

But of course, it doesn’t stop there. We’d like to return the property to one that’s fit for purpose in the 21st century, ensuring it’s rich in heritage and culture, with a brimming programme of events. A building to be proud of, we aim to make the Winter Gardens an attraction which doesn’t just bring our community together but attracts new ones too. On top of this, we’d like to inspire people of all ages to watch, experience and participate in a diverse range of cultural activities. We’re keen to provide learning and engagement opportunities for all and our programme of events often reflects this.

It’s not just about giving people what they want now, but building on the exciting future of the Winter Gardens, keeping it safe for generations to come.

Venue Hire

Want to hire The Winter Gardens for your next big event?

Winter Gardens Auditorium

From £400+vat, the auditorium is a prestigious venue which is available to hire for any occasion. Believe us when we say that if you’re looking to provoke audible ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhhs’ from your guests, you’ll get what you’re looking for here.

Whether it’s your wedding day (we have a licence for receptions but not civil ceremonies), or you’d like to host an act, or put on a charity fundraiser or craft fair, we can help. No event is too big or small either; we’ve played host to music concerts, theatrical shows, reunions, paranormal groups and hypnotists – simply call the office on 01524 409009 to discuss your unique requirements.

Please note: Make sure you call well in advance of your event to discover if our venue will suit your requirements. We do not, for example, accommodate raves, in a bid to protect the building and its furnishings. We can dress your venue – seating up to 600 – and provide a licenced bar from 9am to 2am but outside catering will be required. The bar holds 50 people, while the theatre holds 600.

Our Parisian Bar is just the place for a birthday, anniversary, Christening, or any other big occasion in your life. Step off the promenade and into yesteryear Paris!
