  • I first became away of The Atkinson shortly after the refurbishment. So far I have seen three theatre productions and two concerts in the main auditorium, and been to four concerts held in 'The Bakery', as well as sampled food at 'The Bakery'! Some of the review comments below simply do not represent my experience at this superb venue. Ticket prices are keen, and much lower than those in Manchester (for similar performances) staff have always been more than friendly, and the theatre has always been most top notch (Dracula, Frankenstein, both absolutely excellent) The small scale jazz concerts offer exceptional value, I can't think of a cheaper venue in the entire northwest. And more than anything the venue does it's best to support local arts and artists. It's a large venue, and it deserves your full support.
  • Friendly and helpful staff. Interesting Museum on the history of Southport / Sefton and a discover ancient Egypt exhibition. It also displays in its galleries part of its fine art collection which is regularly changed. it also offers a diverse programme of theatre and cinama events. Not forgetting A great little place cafe it is well worth a visit. .
  • Stopped here for a coffee and a slice of cake. The coffee was burnt and the cake (red velvet) a bit sickly. However it has a nice atmosphere, the staff are friendly and the prices are reasonable. So nice for a quick stop if you're not too fussy about the quality of food/drink
  • Nice place put to good use. Free toilets in the lobby area.
  • Nice food, good athmosohere!
