"In my 24 years in Morecambe I have never experienced anything that quite matches this year's Vintage by the Sea Festival which it is estimated to have attracted more than 40,000 to Morecambe for the weekend. We should never lose faith in Morecambe's intrinsic potential. This spectacular success of the event showed conclusively and convincingly that a real breakthrough has been made in bringing something unique and energising to Morecambe and which will be talked about for years to come." Coun Ron Sands, Lancaster City Council's Cabinet member for leisure, culture and tourism
