The Vintage Festival invites everyone to Morecambe to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the iconic Midland Hotel, which opened its doors in July 1933 for the very first time. Vintage sets out to present the best of British music, fashion, film, art and design.

With its rich heritage the Midland Hotel is the perfect spot for the upcoming Vintage Festival. The majestic building was designed by Oliver Hill and harbored celebrities such as Sir Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward and Coco Chanel. On 14 September the Midland will be even richer in leisure and excitement with Vintage’s great day events (from 11am on).
