ALL you need is love of The Beatles to enjoy a fabulous festival in Morecambe this weekend, paying tribute to The Fab Four.

Beatles Day brings the music of Liverpool’s finest to Morecambe Promenade this Sunday (June 12), as national and local acts recreate Lennon and McCartney classics.

And you don’t have to be a child of the 60s to enjoy Beatles Day as there will be plenty of Beatles-themed fun to keep the kids happy.

Beatles Day, part of the Top 20 festivals season in Morecambe, runs from noon to 5pm, on the outdoor Morecambe Arena stage, near where The Dome used to be.

If the weather is bad, the event will move inside the Winter Gardens.

Headlining will be top UK Lennon and McCartney tribute John and Paul, who have played at some of the biggest Beatles conventions.

Local acts putting their own spin on Beatles tracks will include Matt and Cam, Kim Seymour, Katie Pickles, Imogen Mechie, Jay Blackburn and the PJ Pepper Band.

You are encouraged to come in retro or Beatles-themed fancy dress and there will be a prize for the best dressed.

There is also a colouring competition for kids to create yellow submarines and blue meanies.

And the Strawberry Dance Studios dancers will be there too, renamed the Strawberry Fields Dancers for the occasion.

Beatles Day is free, and everyone is welcome.
