The Great War and Whitehall by the Sea – from 15th April 2017

We are proud to have The Great War Heritage Project with us at The Morecambe Heritage Centre for this year and next. Paul Lomax has been collecting memorabilia and a whole host of artefacts from the battlefields of the First World War. Much of his material is on display along with material brought in by several local people and supporters of the Project. Some of his items were used in the making of the film ‘Warhorse’ and these are on display too. Morecambe was used in World War Two to house people from The Ministry of Defence and became known as Whitehall by the Sea. This forms part of the exhibition, so come along and find out more.

Beauty Surrounds – from 27th May 2016

This wonderful archive, collected by Dorothy Fisher, forms the basis for this exhibition. For 28 years she organised the Miss Great Britain event and was a second ‘mum’ to the girls.

Saturday & Sunday 5th & 6th September 2015

Has it really been a year since the last Vintage Festival? Once again the town was buzzing and locals were mixing with vistors, many in vintage style dress. Our own Lucy and Ivan manned a table outside and wore their own take on vintage. Debbie was busy showing vistors the exhibition while other members were taking up positions to further the aims of the centre.
