What do you think of the show so far? Morecambe Mar 2010 and Feb 2011.

Bring me sunshine in your smile etc, it has to be done!
 
Eric Morecambe for those of you unaware was a legendary English comedian. Known for his double act with ‘little’ Ernie Wise, during the 1970s they were probably the most loved and watched comedy show on British TV.
Born John Eric Bartholomew OBE (14 May 1926 – 28 May 1984),  he took Morecambe, his place of birth as his stage name.
 
We visited Morecambe in March 2010 (and again in Feb 2011, will upload more photos from the Midland Hotel from 2011), as I needed to ‘tick’ Morecambe FC at  ‘Christie Park’ as a football league venue before it was bulldozed and turned into a supermarket! In 2011 they had moved to their new stadium, ‘the Globe Arena’, hence the re-visit, when on this visit we stayed in the fabulous Midland hotel.
 
Morecambe is now a rather down at heel Victorian seaside resort, with little to recommend it really apart from a few decent real ale pubs, the superb renovated Art Deco ‘Midland hotel’ and the statue to Eric on the seafront.
