I hope you had a great day on Friday The Royal Wedding Day Shady Ray & I attended an Afternoon Tea Dance at the Iconic Art Deco Hotel The Midland Morcombe.
Asolutely spiffing, and tickerty Boo.
The Midland Hotel has long been on my list of Places to visit so Shady Ray & I just could not miss the opportunity to attended a tea dance there, as it sounded and was absolutely spiffing, and tickerty Boo.

Me on the Promenade boy was it bracing..........
We did however manage to embrace the bracing sea air and panoramic view and eat the picnic lunch we had lovingly prepared and so careful stored in my lovely vintage wicker basket.

Boogie Bill & his Bilionaires.   

Steph & Anthony.

And when the Tea Dance was over we decamped to the Sun terrace of the Cocktail Lounge to enjoy Champaigne Cocktails, Pimms & Bumble Bees Cocktails and the music from Anthonys vintage windup  Gramaphone  and his extensive collection of 78 records

Whilst watching the sun set on a Tickerty Boo day spent with spiffingly lovely people.

  1. I have always wanted to go there! I've visited Bexhill and Eastbourne and it gave me such a taste for that 30s modernist-luxe style!

  2. Beautiful building. Looks like you has fun!
