Ken Dodd Happiness Centre edges forward

Lady Anne Dodd and the Royal Court Theatre are planning a  permanent exhibition about the comedian’s life as part of a new  four-storey cultural venue on the site of the existing Courtyard bar next to the theatre. Liverpool City Council are recommending approval for the scheme by Stirling Prize winning architect Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Director Paul Monaghan is the Liverpool City Region Design Champion and spoke at our 2022 Annual General Meeting.

The scheme also includes workshop space for the theatre, a 111-cover restaurant and a bar/café for 150 people.
