WINTER GARDENS

Morecambe Winter Gardens is part of a national initiative launched by Theatres Trust to prevent the permanent closure of hundreds of UK theatres. #SaveOurTheatres

We are excited to announce our new movie !

During lockdown we have been working hard behind the scenes to create a movie covering the amazing history of Morecambe Winter Gardens. This taster version is to wet your appetite for the launch of the full feature movie on Monday 8th March 2021.

The Virtual Tour of the Winter Gardens Theatre was funded through a Marketing Lancashire Covid Business Support Grant and has enabled us to explore new ways or income revenue during the period the theatre continues to be closed.  Your guides are Professor Vanessa Toulmin, Professor of Early Film and Popular Entertainment at the University of Sheffield and Chair of the Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust and Peter Wade, long time fundraiser, supporter and local historian who has actively raised over £100,000 over the past twenty years for the theatre.  All proceeds go towards our continuous charitable goal, to restore and regenerate our marvellous Grade II*listed Victorian theatre, one of only thirty theatres of this designation in England and Wales.   We hope it will encourage you to visit our beautiful theatre situated on the seafront of Morecambe Bay or to take seat from the comfort of your home and explore a venue once called the Albert Hall of the North.
