Morecambe's Festival Market on the look out for rising 'Bake Off' stars

Morecambe's Festival Market is on the look out for rising stars to take part in a bake off at this year’s Family Fun Weekend.

This years event takes place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7th July.

As well as a whole host of entertainment planned during the weekend, the Festival Market is inviting residents to showcase their cooking skills by taking part in the market's first ever bake off.

There are several categories in the competition including best cupcake, best biscuit, best scone and most unusual cake as well as a prize for the best cake made by under 12s.

The winner of each category will receive £10 worth of market vouchers and the overall winner will find themselves sampling afternoon tea delights for free at the Midland Hotel.

Judging will take place at 12 noon on Sunday July 7th.

Free entry forms are available from the market office and downloadable online at

This two day event will also be offering a fantastic opportunity for local talent in the performing arts department to get a share of the limelight too. The Festival Market is keen to hear from local dancers and singers to take centre stage at the event and show off their skills to parents, friends, shoppers and other visitors to Morecambe during the weekend.

Time slots are allocated on a first come first served basis and singers will need to provide their own equipment.

• If you are interested in being part of the weekend’s feast of entertainment, contact the market office on 01524 414251 or send an email to
