Bring Me Sunshine
June 3, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
To mark the Bring Me Sunshine exhibition at Lancaster City Museum, this special event is a rare opportunity to engage with Eric Morecambe’s past. Come and meet our ‘Eric’ (impersonator, Bob More), see the Rolls Royce that once belonged to Eric Morecambe himself and chat to Mike Fountain, who was Eric’s chauffeur for many years.
The exhibition celebrates a comedy champion who was destined for stardom from an early age. With the support of his family, Eric Morecambe became the British icon we know and love. Many of today’s comedians acknowledge his influence on their own work. He was a real Lancashire – and national – hero.
Personal appearances: 10am – 12.45pm & 1.30 -3.15pm
Exhibition: 10am – 5pm
The Bring Me Sunshine exhibition, which looks at the comedy legend’s life and contains pieces from Eric’s family’s personal collection, continues to 10 July.
… And don’t miss The Art Show What We Did! – new artworks paying tribute to Eric for his 90th birthday. Curated by Morecambe Artist Colony, the exhibition takes over Morecambe Library from 14 May to 16 July.
