Morecambe Lantern Festival
On Wednesday this week, More Music Morecambe held it's annual Lantern festival in the West End of Morecambe. It's a great pre-Christmas carnival atmosphere, bringing together community groups, schools and local residents to celebrate the spirit of Morecambe's West End community. As well as the fabulous lantern parade, the evening featured the Morecambe Band, Baybeat Carnival Band, street performances, carol singing and more besides.

I was asked by More Music Morecambe to photograph the event and must say it was a lot of fun.

I think next year, I'll be back with my boys too!

Merry Christmas everyone!
