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. A survey of the fibrous plaster ceiling was carried out in February 2018. The Trust hopes to take forward a project to repair the ceiling. They successfully applied for Coastal Communities funding to renew the heating system, which will help to extend the use of the building. Historic England, the Theatres Trust and the local authority continue to offer guidance to the Winter Gardens Preservation Trust.
