The Atkinson

About

The Atkinson is Southport’s beautiful home for music, theatre, art, poetry, literature and history, located in the middle of Lord Street in Southport. Significant investment has been made in refurbishing the stunning 19th century buildings, to create a really welcoming cultural centre with a strong contemporary feel.
 
The Atkinson offers an exciting and varied destination for families, cultural tourists and arts enthusiasts alike, with a full day and night time offer. The Information Centre is the first stop in spending the day at The Atkinson. Followed by a visit to the shop that sells gifts and contemporary crafts from regional makers and then relax in the Bakery, choosing from a selection of artisan bread sandwiches, cakes and sharing platters. You can even take little bit of The Atkinson home with you from the delicatessen. 
 
The interactive museum Between Land & Sea – 10,000 years of Sefton’s Coast displays a remarkable collection telling the story of local history from pre-historic times to modern day. Our permanent exhibition Discover Ancient Egypt takes you back thousands of years to the time of the Pharaohs, exhibiting an Egyptology collection previously hidden away for over 40 years.
 
The exhibition spaces features gems from The Atkinson’s permanent collections and touring exhibitions. Artists featured since we have opened in 2013 include Matisse, L.S. Lowry, Walter Sickert, JMW Turner, Antony Gormley and Tracey Emin to name a few!
 
The theatre and studio offer the very best in live entertainment with comedians, bands, lunchtime classical music concerts and more. We host two music Festivals including Love Folk in February and the Blues Fest in October.
