The flexible performance space has proven popular with local families as well as visitors from further away – offering a mix of entertainment including children’s shows, thought-provoking dramas, high octane sports shows and family pantomimes.

The overall winner of Performance Venue of the Year was Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse. The other nominees were Liverpool Empire Theatre, the Lantern Theatre Liverpool and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

Cllr Andy Moorhead, Leader of Knowsley Council said: “Simply being shortlisted alongside the likes of the Liverpool Empire, Everyman and Playhouse and the Philharmonic is an achievement in itself. 

“To be highly commended in that category is a great endorsement of the high quality venue that we are lucky enough to have right here in Knowsley.”
