The Fishing Hut

Part of Morecambe Bay Partnership's Festival of the Bay 2018

During Summer 2018 The Fishing Hut, a handcrafted travelling gallery shed, will appear at various coastal locations around Morecambe Bay.  Visitors are invited to step inside to enjoy a kaleidoscope of short animated films, small illustrated stories and artefacts that explore and celebrate the culture and heritage of the Fishing communities around the Bay.

The highly decorative Hut, created by artists Hannah Fox and John Fox, has been inspired by Morecambe Bay Partnership's oral history project collecting memories of the Bay's fishing industry for future generations. It will contain amazing details gleaned from the stories of fishing families. 

The Hut is touring to several festivals and events around Morecambe Bay throughout Summer 2018 and visiting schools.

Why not spend a little while exploring this Seaside treasure trove?
