Morecambe’s West End Festival will return for its 20th year this weekend.

More Music’s community festival will be celebrating its 20th anniversary on Saturday July 18.

Taking place in Regent Park the festival promises to be a great day for the community.

Starting from 12pm until 4pm the day will bring live music, entertainment, arts and crafts plus many stalls.

More Music’s development director Kathryn MacDonald said: “The West End festival in Regent Park has become established as key cultural event for the community.

“Every year we celebrate our local community through a day of music, singing, dancing, fun and games.

“All this helps to promote a positive profile of the neighbourhood that we are very proud to be part of.”

The festival is free and open to all ages.

There will be a range of activities during the day, including: splodge-o-matic - spin your own painting using pedal power, bungee trampolining, astral circus, folk music corner, More Music’s Chinese ensemble, live music from More Music’s rising stars and Time and Tide - the launch of a new interactive touring exhibition.

There will also be music sessions to participate in.

Baybeat Carnival Streetband will be parading around the park and the West End throughout the afternoon.

More Music is a music and education charity based at the Hothouse in Morecambe, with 21 years’ experience of delivering workshops, training, performances and festivals across the district, region and beyond.
