Morecambe Council seeks views on future festivals

John Freeman
After the success of the Festival and Events programme over the past two years, Morecambe Town Council is keen to support and promote a further comprehensive programme of events next year.

With this in mind, the Council is asking for members of the public to give their views regarding the 2011 programme and the type of programme to be put together and supported in 2012.

This year a programme of events over a 20 consecutive week period has been supported by a range of partners, running between April and September which will culminate in the spectacular Seaside Festival over the weekend of 10th and 11th September.

Whilst the “Top 20” has received widespread acclaim, the Town Council is aware that organisations may wish to extend this programme or simply add new events. The public’s views would greatly assist the Council in its decision making.

The specific questions within the Consultation are: what are your views on the 2011 Programme of Events and what the types of Festivals and Events should be organised and supported financially in 2012 by the Town Council?

The Council would also like to know if there is support for a special event to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in June next year; and whether or not a special event(s) should be organised to celebrate the Olympics being held in this country.

Members of the public are invited to access the Discussion page on the Town Council’s website at to leave their views or alternatively  email the Town Clerk at, or write to the Town Clerk at: David Croxall, Town Clerk, Morecambe Town Council, Morecambe Town Hall, Morecambe. LA4 5AF.

The closing date for this consultation is 31st August, 2011
