60 years ago this summer, Morecambe was alive with Camera crews, equipment and big name actors. They were filming an adaptation of John Osborne’s play ‘The Entertainer’

Many of the actors came from London or Manchester, but a few were locals, including our very own Thora Hird. But what about the bit part actors? Well most of them came from Morecambe.

Our Exhibition will celebrate making the film here in Morecambe, but will also celebrate the local unknown stars of the film.

We will launch our exhibition on Saturday 4th May, here at Morecambe Heritage in the Arndale Centre, and the local actors will be guests of honour.

Put the date in your diary, and make sure you come along!

Opening Hours
Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays 11.00am to 4.00pm.
