Subject: Seasongs & Shanties Morecambe 12/13 Sept

This year, as part of Morecambe's annual 'We Do Like to be Beside the Sea!' weekend, we've managed to include an element of our much-loved seasongs and shanties - which will be performed by some of our much-loved artists.

The event takes place over the weekend of Friday & Saturday 12th and 13th September. There are free daytime performances by Paul Sirman, Andy Kenna, One Sheet Short (Geoff Higginbottom and Keith Kendrick) and Stormalong John. On Saturday evening, there is a ticketed concert at The Platform, with Paul, Andy, Stormies and the legend that is Louis Killen *sigh*. On Sunday evening, Sid Kipper is in concert, presenting his 'Cod & Ships' show!

Taffy Thomas will also be telling his 'Salty Tales' and there is a host of other entertainments and attractions (free), including a flea circus, escapologist, pierrots, comic dramas, punch & judy and, on the Sunday afternoon, the Bradford to Morecambe Historic Vehicle Rally (something like 200 vintage vehicles) and an air display by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

It's not a folk festival - but it is a bloody good weekend, celebrating traditional seaside fun and frolics, with a hint of the briny, snuck in under the radar! All of the entertainment is free, apart from the ticketed evening concerts. Tickets for these are available from the Platform Box Offiec on 01524 582803. Other enquiries, please ring 01524 582872.

Many thanks and hope you might be able to get along.

Poem 124 of 230: FROM MORECAMBE - AUTUMN 2000

A long-and-wide red promenade,
    Art mirroring local fauna,
Pebbles preventing sand-shore fade,
    Boats that may be modern-prawner,
Huge mudflats where birds and folks wade,
    The far-shore tide-guides help shortcut,
Then, higher-and-higher-back laid,
    Fells that peak where the Lakelands jut.

Thanks for that Blowzabella. I managed to find a leaflet online but I'll ring anyway - Simpkin is a surname I'm very interested in at the moment...

This looks like a great weekend and all cleverly timed so that there is no clash with Morecambe's big day out on Tuesday's when the crowd's turn out to watch the Trafic Lights Change.

No - they turn out on Tuesdays, cos the market's open (and Thursdays and Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays!)

What they have done away with the Morecambe Lights! How Shefish can you get?

Sorry I don't really agree with the popular misconception that there is nothing to see or do in Morecambe. Let's see there the Light from the Morecambe Bay Prawns, the Two Headed Dogs, and all them sheep with Golden Fleeces.
