Watches, nylons, petrol coupons! - Viv the Spiv (Iain Dawson) has it all at the Vintage-by-the-Sea weekend.

Get set for a weekend of wonderfully evocative music, fashion, kids activities, beauty, film, art, design, cocktails and food.

There is certainly something for everyone at Morecambe Vintage-by-the-Sea.

A celebration of the culture of 20th century Britain, Vintage-by-the-Sea expands to two days this year (Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7) after last year’s debut.

In 2013 the Festival marked The Midland’s 80th anniversary and attracted more than 7,000 visitors to the town. Led by the awardwinning family design team of Wayne, Gerardine and Jack Hemingway, the event returns this year for a weekend extravaganza.

Whether your thing is swing, rockabilly, mod, soul, funk, disco, ska, film, art or design - or if you just want to dress up and get an authentic makeover for a day, the Vintage by the Sea Festival is a sensual delight, a big dressing-up box, a collector’s dream and a joyous creative feast for all ages.

For one glamorous weekend the music, fashion, film, art, design and dance from the 1920s to the 1990s that has made Britain the world’s creative and cultural hot bed is celebrated.

The fantastic setting of Morecambe’s seafront will provide the backdrop and be transformed into a multi-venue playground where, visitors can ‘learn the dances’, take in specially curated live performances, exclusive DJ sets, see evocative fashion, brilliantly conceived food and cocktails, ogle over beautiful vintage vehicles or take advantage of the decade specific hair and beauty makeovers and all the wonderful vintage shopping on offer.

The festival is jointly funded by Lancaster City Council and Morecambe Town Council.
