WINNER: BEST CULTURAL VENUE IN LANCASHIRE Welcome to a new year at Burnley Mechanics and what promises to be another successful season sure to delight all the family. 2016 was a very special year for Burnley Mechanics and we couldn’t be more pleased to have been named winners of Best Cultural Venue in Lancashire at the Lancashire Tourism awards held at Blackburn Cathedral on Thursday 10th November beating off tough competition from major venues throughout the North West. The Award is fitting recognition for all the hard work that has taken place at the Mechanics over the past three years. The whole team are extremely delighted to have been recognised in this way. We are very focused on ensuring our customers have an excellent experience when they visit the venue. “The Mechanics team together with our external partners work hard to present a balanced program of events and we have been very successful”. But it’s not just about the programme of events, we have forged an exceptional partnership with our catering partners who have transformed our Bistro and Pre-show catering to offer that ultimate evening out experience. Our technical team are amongst the best technicians in the north of England and their expertise adds so much to the shows and events. Local Societies continue to be an integral part of our success and new partnerships have been formed with arts organisations to increase our diversity, the creation of the largest Gin Bar in the area with over 100 gins on offer and the massive improvements and refurbishment to our front of house bars and foyer have pushed us forward. Our dedicated team work so hard to make visiting the Mechanics an excellent experience and this has been recognised by a large increase in visitor therefore it’s fantastic to be recognised in this way and win this award. Our vision is that everyone is given the opportunity to experience and be inspired by theatre and the arts and the Mechanics has been recognised as an accessible place to do this. This award is great acknowledgement of our commitment to Sport and Culture across Burnley. The Mechanics is without doubt a flagship venue in East Lancashire and recognition from the Lancashire Tourism awards is very welcome. I urge everyone to come along to the venue and see for themselves why it has been voted the best Cultural Venue in Lancashire.

Gerard Vinton,

Burnley Leisure Chief Executive
