Morecambe Winter Gardens – Virtual Tour
Monday, 8th March 2021
Taster tour is free
The Winter Gardens in Morecambe are a splendid example of Victorian theatre building. Grade 2* listed, one of only thirty such surviving in the UK and once called the Albert Hall of the North. It’s been empty for decades, but is now being looked after by a Preservation Trust which will gradually restore it and bring it back into full use. Sheffield’s own Professor Vanessa Toulmin, of the University of Sheffield, is chair of the Trust and one of the prime movers of the project. You can see an introductory tour of the theatre via the link above; and from 8 March a full video tour is available for a small donation.
