After more than 130 years in private ownership Blackpool Council purchased the Winter Gardens in March 2010. Funding for the purchases and investment was secured from European Regional Development Fund, Homes and Communities Agency, Northwest Regional Development Agency and Blackpool Council. Following acquisition the Winter Gardens has undergone some major refurbishment including extensive work to the entrances, Dome and Floral Hall, and the opening of the two new dining options – The Mazzei Café and The Empress Grill Room. More projects are in discussion. The Winter Gardens is operated on behalf of Blackpool Council by Crown Entertainment Centres Ltd.
