MORECAMBE and Wise will be among the performers celebrated by a new art exhibition at Lancaster University.

Artist Mel Brimfield will open her new showcase called This Is Performance Art: Part 2, to coincide with her recently-published book of the same name.

Mel has been exploring the university’s Jack Hylton archive.

Hylton launched the careers of many famous people including Morecambe and Wise, Shirley Bassey, Maurice Chevalier, Tony Hancock, Arthur Askey, the Crazy Gang, George Formby and Liberace.

The exhibition will be available to view at the Peter Scott Gallery on campus between January 20 and February 18.
