About the Event
Step into the world of outdoor nomadic fine dining, where the salt marshes become your dining room and the unique backdrop of Morecambe Bay your view. You’ll be served a feasting menu prepared on the fire by Oli Martin and Matt Willdigg who will craft each dish with inspiration directly from the salt marshes and surrounds of Morecambe Bay, ensuring a one-of-a-kind experience for your senses.
As you arrive, we’ll pour you a coastal cocktail and you'll enjoy some welcome snacks.
Joining us at the table will be Stuart and Caroline Lawson who graze their sheep right here on the salt marshes and whose salt marsh lamb we'll be enjoying on the menu, slow-cooked over the fire.
Let the sounds of the coastal breeze carry the acoustic cello played by Maja Bugge alongside the ethereal symphony of curlews and Oystercatchers filling the air.
This is a journey into the heart of nature's larder where we celebrate the Lancashire coastline, British agriculture and wild ingredients.
Oli Martin and Matt Willdigg are two of Lancashire's finest chefs, and not only are they well renowned in the home county they have worked in some of the world's best kitchens.
Both Oli and Matt have a food ethos steeped in the locality and low food miles and are excited to show off the versatility of the ingredients that can be found right here on our shoreline.

What’s special about the salt marshes and Morecambe Bay
This unique landscape is full of shoreline ingredients, the combination of intertidal salt marshes and mud flats makes for very fertile fishing and farming as well as a haven for coastal birds and other wildlife who call Morecambe Bay home.
Morecambe Bay is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and an SSSi with the largest intertidal area in the UK. This is also where we call home, we love our area and can’t wait to share all of what it has to offer in this one-of-a-kind immersive dining experience.
