Most Haunted Morecambe Winter Gardens
Special guest Brian Shepherd joins the team at Morecambe WinterGardens where, it’s thought, the spirit of Thora Hird lingers on…
The Victoria Pavillion (Winter Gardens) was built in 1897 as part of an extension to the original Winter Gardens (now demolished).
The theatre (seen to the right) staged its last performance in 1977. It was externally restored in the mid 1990s and has since been taken over by the Friends of the Victoria Pavillion.
The theatre closed in 1977 and was restored externally in the mid 1990s.
The canopy at the front was removed towards the end of the 1960s. A new one, similar to the original, was erected during recent restoration.
