Opening times

Lockdown – Temporarily closed until further notice

In response to the government’s lockdown rules The Atkinson will close to the public from 5 January 2021 until further notice. This includes the Box Office, Theatre, Studio, Museum, Galleries, Shop, Library, One Stop Shop and A Great Little Place café.

Further information on The Atkinson’s reopening details will be provided in due course. We take the safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff seriously, and we are closely following advice from the Government and Sefton Council.

We will continue to champion the enjoyment of arts, culture and heritage, where residents, visitors and communities can be entertained, inspired, continue learning and improve their wellbeing. You can keep up to date with our activity by reading our news page, following us on social media and by subscribing to our e-newsletter. We will continue to share ways to get involved, as well as content and stories from our collections and programmes. On our website, you can visit a selection of our exhibitions online in virtual reality.

Library members can use the digital Library service. All books currently on loan will be automatically renewed. For further information on Southport Library please visit the Sefton Libraries website.

We look forward to welcoming you back into The Atkinson once it is safe to resume our programme.
