The following statement was issued by Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills:
“Southport has a vibrant economy and of course we understand and appreciate the impact that Covid-19 / Coronavirus has had on many of the town’s businesses, including Southport Theatre and Convention Centre.
For now, the venue remains closed, however we at Sefton Council, despite the current constraints, are continually reviewing plans for the reopening, and for the long-term future of this important venue and project, including the welfare of staff at the centre’’
This is a complex and dynamic situation that is likely to take weeks or even months to completely resolve but in the meantime we hope that when the theatre once again opens to the public that you will return to enjoy the varied and exciting calendar of shows and events.***
