New paid jobs at Morecambe Winter Gardens as restoration set to enter next phase

The four new jobs are being funded by a grant from Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Chair of the Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust, Professor Vanessa Toulmin, said: ‘’These are four important roles that will bring the theatre to the next stage of revenue and capital delivery but also add to the already amazing volunteer work we all do daily. 

‘’These posts are newly created and funded by our grant and our supported to help create more events, add to our volunteers, support the development of the capital project with project administration and take us onto the next stage.  

‘’They are not here to support our fundraising or daily volunteer roles but to deliver the People's Palace and bring the venue back to life.’’

The People’s Palace

In 2023 the Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust were awarded funding from the Cultural Development Fund Round 3 delivered by Arts Council England on behalf of the Department for Culture Media and Sport. The £2.74 Million supported by UKSPF funding and money from the Trust will deliver a project totalling £3.2 Million pounds of investment into the theatre. 

The capital funding will support the next phases of the project to revitalise the theatre, including adding a new toilet block, improving circulation and evacuation routes, as well as continued restoration work.

Revenue funding supports four new posts to create a small team to enable the Preservation Trust to deliver partnership working with creative producers in the region, supporting new programmes of events within the theatre as capacity increases, create work experiences placements for young people within the Young Creatives Programme and support the Morecambe Winter Gardens volunteers.
