You’ll have seen 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 through the heart of Morecambe’s regeneration, the aim of the Winter Gardens Preservation Trust’s with the help of the Friends of the Winter Gardens ongoing development project is to restore the existing theatre, highlighting its unparalleled heritage and building on its rich tradition here in the town.

Although 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 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.
