The Floral Pavilion, New Brighton - The West End of the North West
A state of the art new venue situated on the Mersey Estuary with a plush theatre staging large scale musicals, plays, live music, family shows and a traditional family pantomime as well as a more intimate performance space for live music and comedy. The Floral Pavilion is more than just a theatre; Carringtons @ The Floral serve food 7 days a week in the impressive glass panoramic lounge, with breathtaking views of the beautiful marine lake framed by the historic fort and lighthouse, ideal to relax and listen to the pianist over a sumptuous meal. The Blue Lounge and terrace provide the perfect place for celebrations and weddings to either party the night away or celebrate in a more intimate style. While the flexible space easily caters for corporate meetings and large scale events.
New Brighton is the unsung hero of holiday resorts. After World War One, the town started to see a decline in its visitors, and its Blackpool style tower, the tallest tower in the UK was eventually pulled down due to bad repair, leaving only the ballroom left, New Brighton faded into the background, and other seaside resorts took its place. Almost a hundred years on, from its original build, the new Floral Pavilion Theatre stands majestically looking out of the River Mersey, and the New Brighton that once was, now is again. The Floral Pavilion is now, not only a theatre, but a multi-purpose entertainment venue that attracts people from all over the Northwest. Thanks to this theatres regeneration and the forward thinking of Wirral Borough Council, new life has been given to New Brighton, and maybe one day this once great holiday destination, will be back to its former glory once again!
