About

About The Atkinson

The Atkinson is Southport’s home for music, theatre, art, literature and history. You can find us in the middle of the iconic Lord Street and just 3 minutes’ walk from Southport train station.

We offer an exciting and varied destination for families, cultural tourists and arts enthusiasts alike, with a full day and night time offer. Significant investment has been made in refurbishing our stunning 19th century buildings to create a welcoming and accessible multi art-form venue with a strong contemporary feel.

The Atkinson is open throughout the year and presents a varied seasonal programme and changing exhibitions, events and lectures, so whatever time of year you visit, we offer a fun, creative and varied day out with family or friends.

Theatre, Music, Comedy

Our traditional Theatre and dynamic Studio space present an outstanding programme of music, comedy and performing arts from some of the UK’s foremost musicians, actors, performers and companies. Keep an eye out for our regular festivals; Kidsfest, Big Blues Festival and Love Folk Festival. 

Art Gallery

The Atkinson is also home to an impressive collection holding over 3,500 artworks and over 25,000 pieces of social history, which are displayed on rotation across our museum and galleries. The regularly changing exhibition programme presents work from our collection as well as contemporary art, family friendly and thematic exhibitions delivered in partnership with other cultural organisations. Regular arts and craft events for families take place in the Art Box and Discovery Box.

Museum

Our stunning Egyptology Museum takes visitors on a journey through what life was like in ancient Egypt at the time of the Pharaohs. The museum showcases Mrs Goodison’s personal Egyptology collection in an intimate exhibition. Visitors can see an intricately decorated coffin lid, the Mummy of Nes-Amun, a wooden Ba-bird and rare paddle dolls, amongst many other artefacts. Interactive displays include the ‘Weighing of the Heart’ ceremony, X-raying an Ibis mummy and a hieroglyphic jigsaw wall.

Between Land and Sea – 10,000 Years of Sefton’s Coast is a local history museum telling the stories of the people who have lived and worked along our coast, from prehistoric times to the present day. The museum showcases the development of Sefton’s tourist towns of Southport and Birkdale, the outstanding natural habitats from Marshside to Formby Point and the major industrial port of Bootle. Take a walk through the museum as it details the story of the coast. 

Shop
