Morecambe Winter Gardens makes progress – and gets more good news

Currently celebrating its 125th anniversary year, Morecambe’s historic Winter Gardens restoration project is well into its second year.

As can be seen from the interior photos, the plasterwork specialists Hayles and Howe are taking great care in recreating lost ceiling panels, box fronts and other decorative plasterwork features.

Further good news to boost the Winter Gardens’ future life came at the end of January when the local Council voted unanimously to approve the plans for another Eden Project eco-park, this time to be built in Morecambe. You can see from the images that the Eden Morecambe project will form an impressive architectural trio along with the Winter Gardens and the recently-restored 1933-built art deco Midland Hotel.

Its great to report that things are looking good in Morecambe! Well done to all the many people steering this grand old theatre into its next phase of life.
