Morecambe’s Vintage-by-the-Sea festival has been shortlisted for a major tourism award.

The September 2014 event on Morecambe seafront is a finalist in the Visit England Awards for Excellence.

Co-organised by Hemingway Design and Deco Publique, the event drew 40,000 people to Morecambe for two days of nostalgia. The award application was put in by English Lakes Hotels, who run the Midland Hotel.
