Attraction details
Reviewed 5 December 2017

Booked to see Roy Wood the music was good ( The Move,Wzzard etc) but he had no stage presence a bit of a wet fish who gave the impression he would rather be somewhere else.It was November 30th 2017 a sunny day but boy was it cold it made your eyes water.Inside the theatre was just the same no heat whatsoever with a cold draught ( as if a door was wide open) all night.The supplier said she could hardly feel her fingers to use the keyboard.Roy Wood mentioned more than once how cold it was.If you must go in winter get wrapped up.

Doddy never disappoints.
The show started around 7:15pm and went on to midnight, not bad for an old veteran!
I have visited the theatre and convention centre many times before and have never been disappointed.
Living equidistant between Liverpool and Southport, my choice of theatre is always Southport due mainly to the local free on-street parking of which there is ample.
The theatre is very well run and has a large reception area with bar to wait in until the auditorium doors open.
The staff are very pleasant and accommodating.
Southport theatre will always be my choice of venue for a stress free evenings entertainment.

Went to see the Happiness show 25th Nov in Southport, Ken Dodd was a laugh a minute, the whole show was wonderful, my chuckle muscles had plenty of exercise. The venue is very clean and the staff are excellent however the evening was spoiled at times by people coming into the theatre late we’ll after the show had started carrying beers and trying to find seats, also people are constantly going to the bar during the performance, is it not polite to the artist and others who have to be disturbed to wait until the interval.

Came here to watch the legendary Ken Dodd. Being 90 he was still amazing. All his fans love him. Some wore scalves with Doddy fan. The theatre and convention centre were fantastic venues. And the staff were extremely friendly snd helpful. Love this place.
