Luminate Morecambe is of course reinvention of the idea of a traditional illuminations festival into which Morecambe hosted for majority of the 20th century. However , Morecambe has picked up in recent years , with the loss of attractions , in a bad image , of which we are determined to change with the collaboration of the community. The creation of unique illuminations created and inspired by the community , in new ways, provides us with a really unique festival/attraction for Morecambe to really feel connected and proud off.3 years of deep study , development and work has brought us to a point into which we feel we can really bring "light" to this project. Morecambe has a brilliantly vibrant and creative community of which has a real spirit flowing through the town. Throughout the hardships into which many northern towns have faced , the people of Morecambe have remained as vibrant as ever. We see this reinvention of the Illuminations and Community festivals as a "Show Off" chance.

What we'll deliver:

  • Creation of the Illuminations (Paint , Wood , And of course LIGHTS!)
  • Utilasation of an Under used space , directly at the heart of Morecambe!
  • Community Art Classes (With Respected Local Artists)

Why it's a great idea:

Luminate Morecambe is a fabulous idea due to its , uniqueness into which the project holds. There is currently no , community festival project into which has deep interwoven ties , of all stages with the community. We hope that this example into which Luminate will showcase , will be a catalyst for further festivals of strong community relations to follow. But also the oppertunitiy of this festival has the strongest of good ideas. Not only do's Luminate Morecambe have exceptional backing from the community , business and council but we also , realy hold onto this opportunity to showcase Morecambe in the most positive of ways. We wish to remove and highlight the fabulous nature of Morecambe away from the streiotypical viewpoints into which the decline in tourism has brought. This idea , is so important in showcasing this , but also bringing a unique attraction to Morecambe. Its truly unique, magical and advanced in so many ways ; and we know this is a formula into which will work

Steps to get it done:

  • Installing the features
  • Switch on/Launch Night
  • Developing community creation sessions
  • Planning with volunteers the festival in full.
  • Purchasing the equipment and materials.
