Seafood Festival set for perfect catch
FINAL preparations are being made for the Midland Hotel's
inaugural Seafood Festival taking place on Morecambe's waterfront on the 1st
weekend of July 2016. 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 and Venues, the festival showpiece
commences, on Sunday, 3 July 2016, 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. 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." said Mark Needham from English Lakes Hotels Resorts
