With Children's theatre, some of the biggest names in comedy, music and art The Atkinson really is a cultural pick 'n' mix for all the family. The Atkinson is a focal point for the town centre.

A great place to spend an hour in Southport with its art collections. They also have local and other specialised exhibitions. Also do visit the cafe on site

The staff were very nice too.

Attended a John Bramwell gig here last night, and what a great little theatre.
Street parking all around, free after 6pm.
Venue is very modern, with friendly staff to guide you.
Loads to look at as you walk to the theatre.
Theatre would be great for standup or a troubadour like John.
Nice bar area, good access and toilets.
Nice venue we would like to return to.
