Heritage Market Festival

Our Heritage Market Festival was a success!

In December 2023 we held a market festival in the centre of the city, that celebrated Lancaster & Morecambe’s past.

The festival, produced and designed by Lancaster and Morecambe’s 11-18 year olds, spread a Christmassy mood and festive cheer, dazzling guests with live music, dramatic performance, arts and crafts, gift stalls, delicious snacks and coffee and much more!

Full of festive cheer, the young people involved have been able to develop skills such as pottery, jewellery making, festive decorations, woodwork, portrait painting and photography.

Funded by the Lottery Heritage Fund and in collaboration with Lancaster City Museums to coincide with their 100th Anniversary celebrations, Escape2Make workshops have helped to educate, entertain and empower local youth, inspiring the curation and creation of this amazing festival event!

Were you there?

Thank you so much for coming! And we’ll be back with news about our next exciting project… soon!
