Atkinson venue set to go public

David Upton

The two performance spaces at The Atkinson, Southport’s new cultural hub, are almost ready to open their doors to the public.

The venue, which is managed and funded by Sefton Council, can boast an impressive line up of performances during its first week starting May 2, giving audiences a taste of the entertainment they can expect in the future.

The Atkinson’s programme should ensure its place as a key arts venue in the North West and a major cultural boost for Southport.
