The Winter Gardens, 207-214, Marine Road Central, Morecambe - Lancaster

Theatre built in 1896, with a facade of red terracotta and brick. Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust owns and looks after the theatre, with the assistance of Friends and Volunteers. The Trust has been successful in receiving grant offers, including a Coastal Communities grant to renew the heating system and a Theatres Trust capacity building grant. A Historic England Repair Grant for Heritage at Risk will be used to repair the building's ornate fibrous plaster ceiling. Project Development for this repair project is underway.
