The Coro

Tim Heaton

Nestled in the heart of Ulverston, a rural market town on the fringes of the Lake District, stands The Coro —an esteemed historic hub for arts, culture, and entertainment. Originally the ‘Coronation Hall’ it answered the community’s call for a space dedicated to theatre music, dance, and entertainment. Since its inception, The Coro has evolved into a cherished venue, showcasing world-class performances as well as local talent through home-grown artists and regionally produced festivals, shows, activities, and events.
