THE Hemingway family’s Vintage By the Sea Festival, led by Wayne, Gerardine and Jack Hemingway, is to return to Morecambe for a second year this September 6 and 7.

The vintage extravaganza combines dancing, music, fashion, glamour, film, classic cars, delicious street food, creative workshops, kids’ activities, street theatre, a vintage fairground, vintage bus tours and an eclectic vintage and upcycled market place to browse vintage treasures.

There will also be a vintage cycle ride and a Vintage Pooch Parade! On Saturday, September 6 a Lancaster Bomber will perform a flypast of the festival.

The weekend’s programme will provide a free festival of entertainment for local residents and visitors to experience one of the most unique places to celebrate all things vintage.

This year will also see the return of some of the popular ticketed events, including The Torch Club, an unforgettable night of 1930s and ’40s glamour and afternoon tea at the Midland Hotel.

Tickets for many of the events can be purchased by visiting the Vintage website or by calling The Midland Hotel 08456 015478. www.vintagefestival. info@vintageby
