Built originally as the “Victorian Pavilion Theatre” in 1897, the building became Grade II listed in 1977 when it closed it’s doors to the public that same year. The Victorian Pavilion Theatre was part of the Morecambe Winter Gardens complex which included a ballroom, swimming baths and a bar. Sadly, declining profits led to the complex closing and the ballroom building was demolished (in 1982).
In 2008, Morecambe Winter Gardens became listed (as part of the Morecambe Conversation Area) as one of the areas most significant features, however the local council lost out to a grant to regenerate the attraction so restoration is entirely funded by the Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust, meaning much of the building is still in a tender state of repair. Morecambe Winter Gardens is a truly haunted theatre with numerous reports of paranormal experiences. Visits here have left people terrified and apparitions have been seen on the staircase along with a very sinister presence under the stage. Morecambe Winter Gardens will test the nerve of the most avid ghost hunter. During your night at Morecambe Winter Gardens will you experience the evil side of the theatre which is said to be present? Or will you uncover the fact from fiction? Are you ready to enter its doors to find out?
