Platform closure

With live performances inside the venue still not possible, the Platform will be taking over from Salt Ayre Leisure Centre as a distribution centre for Morecambe Bay Foodbank until 31st December 2020.  This decision allows Lancaster City Council to continue our work ensuring that the needs of the district’s most vulnerable residents can be met through the coronavirus pandemic and beyond. There will therefore be no events at the Platform until 2021 at the earliest. All events between now and then have been cancelled/postponed with full refunds or vouchers available to ticket holders. Please contact the box office on 01524 582803 (Lines open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am-4pm)
