Morecombe 1

The Vintage Festival is taking a one day trip to Morecambe to help celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the iconic Art Deco hotel, The Midland.

During a golden period before the Second World War, The Midland, recognised widely as a ’30s art deco masterpiece, played host to luminaries and fashion icons such as Coco Chanel, Wallace Simpson, Laurence Olivier and Noel Coward, who enjoyed the panoramic views across Morecambe Bay to the Lake District fells in the distance.

For one day only, 14th September 2013, the Vintage Festival will be in Morecambe to celebrate the music, fashion, film, art, dance, food and design from those halcyon days when the Midland Hotel opened in 1933.

The hotel and the surrounding landscape will be transformed with live dance bands, gramophone DJs, vintage fashion and homewares shopping in the Vintage Marketplace, hair and beauty makeovers in the Vintage Salon, fashion parades plus art and design workshops. There will be evocative street food, themed fine dining and cocktails, classic vehicles, cabaret, burlesque, tea dancing in The Midland‘s sun terrace, making the most of the unrivalled backdrop that gives wide views across Morecambe Bay and the highly acclaimed Torch Club will host a glamorous ball to beat all glamorous balls.
