Some people have mentioned that the building is derelict and cold, however it is currently being restored. It has a lot of history and possible attractions. It can provide shows, has a new cafe and toilet area and the whole building is being returned to it's former glory.
I only have a few complaints about the place however. It is only open on a Wednesday unless there is an event on, which it could probably do with happening more often. There should be regular ghost tours, or at least some around Halloween as the place is renounced for being haunted (something I can say seems very likely) and more daytime events. There should also be guided tours. It would be sure to bring the profit in.

Grand old theatre, in the throes of semi restoration, if anything could do with a lottery injection of cash and some sponsorship and time this does... come on people save this grand old venue for posterity and future generations!!

Incredible theater, watching it come back to life is a real privileged. Great staff, great value and an astonishing atmosphere which would be difficult to recreate anywhere in the world. Do not miss out.

The Winter Gardens is one of the hidden gems of Morecambe. If you are in the area it deserves to be visited. It is often open on a sunday afternoon. Please make a donation to help the volunteers who are trying to restore it.
