Over the last 5 years, The Atkinson in Southport has had a major refurbishment. Tonight's speaker, Joanne Chamberlain, gave a very interesting talk about the refurbishment and the installation of the new galleries , especially the new Goodison Egyptology collection - now on permanent display after 40 years in storage. The next hall to be opened will cover the work of Frank Hampson, the creator of Dan Dare.

The Atkinson now holds a wealth of art, in state of the art galleries covering a wide spectrum from Victorian Oil paintings to modern installations by the likes of Tracy Emin - we are very fortunate to have a gallery of this standing in Southport.
