Beachbash in Morecambe

A MUSICAL extravaganza came to Morecambe last weekend as the resort held its second annual Beachbash festival.

The event, held on the promenade and at The Platform, featured great 60s, 70s and 80s tribute acts.

They included Bev Williams as Kylie Minogue, who launched the four-day festival on Friday night with an astonishing five costume changes in her hour set.

Other “stars” on show included Eddie Robbins as Billy Fury, Yvonne Haylen as Cher and Bob Baxter as Roy Orbison.

There were also tributes to Karen Carpenter, Rod Stewart and The Faces and Phil Collins.
