Thanks For The Morecambe Memories

There will be three opportunities to take a wander down Morecambe’s Memory Lane soon, courtesy of The Dukes.

Morecambe On Film is a collection of professional and amateur archive footage from the resort’s past 100 years presented in partnership with the North West Film Archive.

The first screening, hosted by NW Film Archive staff, takes place on August 31 from 8pm at The Platform in Morecambe as part of the Vintage by the Sea festival. Tickets are priced £7.50/£6.50 concessions.

There will be another screening of this fascinating archive film at The Dukes in Lancaster on September 1 when tickets are priced £6.40/£5.50 concessions.

A slightly shorter version of Morecambe On Film will be screened at The Dukes on September 11 from 2pm as part of the theatre’s A Life More Ordinary programme of events for people with dementia, their friends, family and carers. Admission is £4 and carers go free.

Prior to this screening, on September 4, The Dukes will host a Morecambe On Film storytelling and dance workshop from 2.30-4pm inspired by the archive images and aimed at people with dementia. This session is free but places must be booked in advance.

Morecambe On Film is part of Britain on Film, a national celebration of Britain’s film archives.
