What is it?
In celebration of the 80th Anniversary of Morecambe’s Midland Hotel, the Vintage by the Sea one-day festival will take place on 14th September with dances, workshops and a vintage market.
The Soul Casino at The Winter Gardens will play a mix of deep funk, northern soul, classic soul, disco, authentic R&B, mod sounds and early house, taking you back to the 70s soul clubs and 80s discos.
At the 1930s inspired Vintage Tea by the Sea you can learn some simple dances in the elegant surroundings of the Midland Hotel. Or if you fancy something a little more lively, then shake along to the free Rock N Roll at The Rotunda event.
There will be a Vintage Marketplace in the hotel with vintage clothes, accessories, mid-century modern homewares, records, music memorabilia and up-cycled ephemera for sale. Workshops during the day will teach you new skills from knitting to up-cycling. There will even be a Vintage Salon for beauty makeovers from your favourite decade, from the 20s to the 70s.
Also expect to see classic vehicles, vintage street theatre, classic ice cream vans, vintage street food, rare film footage and pop up performances during the day.
