Final preparations are being made for the Midland Hotel’s inaugural Seafood Festival taking place on Morecambe’s waterfront on the first weekend of July.
The town’s art-deco masterpiece is all set to play host to a sumptuous celebration of all the finest fare that UK waters have to offer.
Organised by English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues, the festival showpiece commences on Sunday 3 July at 11am. Attractions include a Laurent Perrier champagne and oyster bar, seafood stalls featuring the most popular catches, local cask ales and live music from vintage singer Becki Fishwick and Keith Mitchell, who will present the ‘Acoustic Jukebox’.
Festival visitors will be able to participate in demonstrations by Smokey Jo’s on how to smoke certain fish, whilst shrimping expert Frank Benson will show how to prepare Morecambe Bay’s renowned potted shrimps.
“The lead up to the festival has been an exciting time and we’ve been able to invite seafood specialists from across Morecambe Bay and all over the country so that visitors can enjoy a delicious culinary experience, as well as learning about seafood preparation,” says Mark Needham from English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues.
“We hope to see lots of festival visitors – hopefully in fine weather – having a great day out. They can also take time out to relax at the Midland with our afternoon tea sittings also featuring seafood inspired sampling platters.”
