Eric Morecambe Statue
The Eric Morecambe Statue was created by Graham Ibbeson and was unveiled by The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in July 1999. Eric’s widow Joan and their children Gary, Steven and Gail were also present at the ceremony that was attended by thousands of people.
The life size bronze statue of Eric took six years for Graham to complete and the ground around the statue is littered with sayings that made him famous along with the names of some of the stars that performed alongside him in his popular comedy show with his comedic partner Ernie Wise.
The statue is set in the pose that was their final shot of every show where they did the “Bring Me Sunshine” dance. He also has a pair of binoculars around his neck as Eric was a keen birdwatcher.
This is without a doubt one of the most popular landmarks in Morecambe and the amount of people that have their picture taken alongside the statue doing the same pose can be phenomenal at times. The Eric Morecambe statue is situated on the promenade opposite The Royal and is well worth a visit.
