The man behind The Morecambe Variety Festival will host a Valentine’s dinner and dance to remember at the Midland Hotel.

Show producer Neil Kendall will bring his Sea Horse Ball to town on Saturday, February 15, an event with a distinctly vintage twist.

Former Morecambe High School pupil Neil is the promoter of the Variety Festival, which returns to the Winter Gardens this May.

The event comprises of a three-course sit down meal followed by a 40-minute cabaret featuring 1930s ballads sung by Coco Malone and Edinburgh Fringe prize winning juggler Rod Laver.

Guests will arrive to the sound of vintage gramphone records and to round off the evening there will be a vintage dance with tutorials with Anthony Padgett.

Mr and Mrs Vintage Morecambe, the best dressed on the night, will also be crowned.

“I wanted people to dress head to toe in vintage and soak up the atmosphere of Morecambe’s wonderful art deco hotel,” said Neil.

“It’s a special building and I wanted to stage a luxurious evening where everybody feels they are a film star for the night.

“It will certainly be a very different way to experience Valentine’s Day. I love staging special events and this one has sold like wild fire.”

As The Visitor went to press there were just 10 tickets left.

Look out for more on the Variety Festival coming to The Visitor soon.
