The Opening of Winter Garden

The Winter Garden was opened on 22 June 1914 by Cllr Joseph Dinsdale. With its glass canopy, lantern roof, balcony and sprung wooden floor, the Winter Garden was a popular place for concerts, meetings, and dances. Today it’s the perfect setting for weddings and other celebrations.
