The granddaughter of old-time comedian Albert Modley has a fascinating collection of old photographs and programmes from Morecambe’s variety heyday.

In our video, Debbie Cain from Morecambe shows some of her prized possessions to Neil Kendall, promoter of the upcoming Morecambe Variety Festival.

Debbie and Neil met at the launch of Viva Morecambe! - three big events, one huge weekend in Morecambe from May 2-4. The three events in Morecambe on that bumper weekend are The Visitor’s Sunshine Ball, the Morecambe Variety Festival and the return of the Morecambe Carnival.
