Go Morecambe CIC, (Community interest Company) was launched by a group of 8 local people in February 2013, who are committed to working for Morecambe, to help raise regeneration, aspiration and stimulate economic growth. We have members who are also on the Town Team. We will strive to see much more of Morecambe’s huge potential achieved, with a prosperous sustainable future for all.

  • Raise funding through grants and benefit of the community
  • Enhance and establish events and community festivals
  • Liaise with local bodies / organisations to assist private investment

……. Over the past few years we have assisted in the organisation and stewardship of many festivals and events for Morecambe. We reinstated the Morecambe Carnival and Morecambe Bonfire Night, and we brought The World Batala drummers to our summer fiesta. We work alongside other enthusiastic event organisers in the newly formed Morecambe Events Committee.    

Go Morecambe CIC has held food and drink festivals at Lancaster and Morecambe College, Victoria Street for the Portas Pilot Initiative and a World Food Festival on The Bay Arena. We’ve held Christmas markets featuring ice rinks and entertainment by local musicians, Father Christmas with his sleigh, a Christmas pantomime, Christmas lights in the town centre and, of course, a Christmas tree!  

This year we are providing the training of stewards for the Morecambe Carnival, Heysham Viking festival, Morecambe Bonfire and Fireworks Night, most of the GM directors are on the organising committees and volunteer their time to help with all aspects of holding an event.

GM directors are also working with The Morecambe Heritage centre project, which has provided a Heritage Centre to the town for the last 4 years. The centre is run entirely by volunteers with initial seed funding from Lancaster University and is now dependant on donations from the public and community grants.

 If you would like to help as a volunteer please email us through our contact page……..
