Taking place in the West End Gardens on the seafront organisers say it is perfect for families enjoying the summer holidays.

Organiser Kate Drummond said: “I want the event to be specifically for kids and families, providing free, high quality, easily accessible activities and entertainment right in the middle of the summer holidays – just at a time when many families are looking for interesting and affordable ways to spend time together.

“I am looking forward to seeing all the amazing things people make and can’t wait to see the park buzzing with activity.

“At about 4.30pm it will be filled with a flotilla of wooden creations, fish on sticks and tired, happy kids.”

The Seaside Sculpture day takes place on Saturday August 14 from noon-5pm. The day will incorporate craft making, painting and sculpting for all ages and abilities.

The theme will be Fish and Ships. There will be plenty of wood to use and hand tools for hire (small charge for nails) and artists and makers helping to guide you.

Other activities will include fabric printing, mini-boat making and rope splicing workshops, pop-up seaside fun and games, walkabout performance and acoustic music stages. It is produced by Kate for Morecambe Artist Colony, with More Music, Exchange Creative Community.
