Winter Gardens Theatre, Morecambe
The Morecambe Winter Gardens built as The Victoria Pavilion theatre in 1897 and situated on the resorts central promenade within sight of Morecambes other grade 2* listed building, The Midland Hotel. Since its formation in 1986, The Friends of The Winter Gardens charity has represented all who love this famous theatre which sadly closed to the public in 1977 and has worked to protect the building pending full restoration.
In Spring 2006, The Friends judged the time was right to purchase The Winter Gardens and formed a charitable trust company limited by guarantee. The Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust Limited now owns the building and complements the Friends fund-raising by focussing on applications to potential funding bodies based on recent professional assessments that argue persuasively the theatre has a viable future if restored as a multi-purpose venue.
