Morecambe turns back time

THE clock was turned back more than a century on Morecambe promenade at the weekend - for the resort's first Victorian Fstival.

This Is Lancashire:

Queen Victoria, alias Mary Dodd from the Little Cottage Museum in Lancaster (pictured), held court, while period stalls and entertainments surprised passers-by.

Children from Over Kellet's newly formed Daisy Chain Theatre Company (pictured top) were among the main attractions as they danced and sang.

And combined with guided walks, talks, music from Baybeat Carnival Band, an afternoon tea dance and much more, there was something to suit every taste.

Organiser Dawn Baxter says: "It was hard work but very worthwhile. Already people are asking if we will do it again next year."
