Welcome To The Roxy

Hello and welcome to The Roxy. We are a not for profit CIC (Community Interest Company), consisting of a collective of volunteers based in Ulverston, Cumbria. Our objective is to ensure The Roxy building it is protected, preserved, restored and revitalised for our community, for the many years to come – you can read more About Us here.

For many people The Roxy is a nostalgic building, fond in memories of family trips, date nights and a love for films, dating back to 1937. In recent years The Roxy has become a community asset building under threat, with the potential to be lost as a community hub. The Roxy Collective has formed to ensure that this much loved building remains open and an integral part of our community.

As The Roxy Collective we intend to safeguard The Roxy, maintaining and developing the building to restore its original Art Deco style, opening up unused spaces for community use, improving accessibility throughout and most importantly, keeping the businesses currently occupying the building open for our community to enjoy.

To help us achieve these goals we have developed a 3 Phase plan, starting with Phase 1: Purchasing the building, which we completed the sale of on 1st March 2023. We secured several streams of funding and cannot thank our community enough for all your amazing donations to our Crowdfunder and helping us achieve this goal. 

As of August 2023, we are now in the first part of Phase 2 which consists of extensive structural repairs and renovations to our roof, ensuring the building is watertight and giving the exterior walls a fresh colour scheme and new branding. You can follow our progress on our Latest News page and across all our social channels.

We regularly hold open evenings for the public to come along and discuss our journey so far, expand our ideas and give the opportunity for our community to help us achieve our goals for The Roxy’s future. Dates for the next open evening will be regularly shared on here and our social media channels.
