bring me some crime...

In September 2017, Morecambe & Vice made its sparkling debut at the glorious Morecambe Winter Gardens. Described as a weekend 'full of warmth, wit and wisdom', authors, speakers and guests from across the globe flocked to the sunny seaside for a weekend filled with criminal shenanigans.


We've just finished our third year of fun and are now in the planning stages for 2020 so watch out!  Next year the North West's quirkiest crime-writing festival will be bigger and better than ever before! Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and Twitter stream, as we start to announce authors and panels.

The dust has barely settled after the 2019 festival and we're already in the planning stages for 2020!

The dates are set as Sat 12th & Sun 13th Sept 2020

Pending logistics, venue availability, planning and most importantly FUNDING! We'll be going live with more information soon but for now pencil those dates in your diary and keep an eye out for more information coming soon!


here comes 2020!
