Have your say

Get rockin’ and rollin’ in July when Tutti Frutti comes back to Morecambe for a non-stop weekend of music from the 1950s.

Morecambe Jazz will delight fans of the genre and the Festival Market Family Fun Weekend will include entertainment, competitions, music, giveaways and fancy dress. And don’t forget the West End Festival and Poulton Heritage Festival, both of which celebrate the communities and people who make our district so special. If you’re looking to keep the kids busy then check out the activities which will be on offer as part of the holiday activities programme. Details will be available from www.lancaster.gov.uk/holidayprogramme nearer the time.
