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 building. In 2021, a new heating system has been installed with a Coastal Communities grant. A Historic England Repair Grant for Heritage at Risk has funded a first phase of repair to the building's ornate fibrous plaster ceiling. Work to repair the roof is planned for 2021. A further phase of plaster repair is being planned. An options appraisal is looking at how more of the building can be brought back in to use.
