Thanks for your review, glad you were impressed by the Ballroom. The Winter Gardens is a collection of theatres, ballroom and meeting spaces which hosts 100's of event every year, many of them free to attend or visitors are welcome to stroll through the public areas and enjoy the surroundings.

“What a place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I like the winter Gardens but what a shame that the outside is starting to look so shabby, the inside is slowly getting redecorated but the time it is taking will make it hard to reestablish itself as a big venue again. the shows they put on are in the main good except they seem to be relying on old comics and acts from the very dim and distant past.

Thanks for your review. Refurbishment work is on-going, much of it behind the scenes in the meantime the line-up of shows and events includes a mix of newer and established artists appealing to all ages. 2013's programme will see 'sell-out' performances from Little Mix, Micky Flanagan, Alfie Boe, Sarah Millican, Slash, Stereophonics and many others at The Opera House or Empress Ballroom.
