Over the weekend inside The Platform, there will be a celebration of song with performances by choirs from across the North West.
 
Family favourite The Imaginarium will be returning to the Kite Festival this year where storytellers, magicians and circus artistes will dazzle and delight you with tales and acts of derring-do.  

 
 
 
This year you can also visit The Fishing Hut, a fun and magical pop up gallery in the form of a fisherman’s boat shed on wheels created by Morecambe Bay artists John Fox and Hannah Fox. The highly decorative touring shed would contain video animations, woodcuts, printed images and music soundscapes along with hand-crafted books all containing stories of the Bay and amazing detail gleaned from the memories of fishing families around the Bay.
 
In partnership with Morecambe BID this year we will run free kite making workshops in Morecambe Library on 16 June 11am – 3pm and in the Arndale Centre 23 - 24 June 12noon – 3.30pm.
