The Morecambe Winter Gardens opened as The Victoria Pavilion theatre in 1897 and is situated on the resort’s central promenade, overlooking Morecambe Bay.

Since its formation in 1986, The Friends of The Winter Gardens charity have worked hard to protect the building pending full restoration. This famous theatre sadly closed to the public in 1977 and languished unused for decades. In Spring 2006, The Friends judged the time was right to purchase The Winter Gardens and formed a charitable trust company limited by guarantee. Thanks to their ongoing efforts it now offers a diverse programme of entertainment and vintage events. I

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 professional assessments that argue persuasively the theatre has a viable future if restored as a multi-purpose venue.
