Prince Charles visits theatre in Morecambe to mark 125th anniversary

The Prince of Wales has visited a landmark theatre in Lancashire to mark the building's 125th anniversary.

Prince Charles praised volunteers for their determination to restore Winter

Gardens in Morecambe as he unveiled a plaque to celebrate the milestone.

I do greatly admire people like yourselves who are so passionate that you won't give up," he said.

He also visited Morecambe Fire Station and Weeton Barracks during his trip to the county.

Prince Charles was greeted by cheering crowds as he arrived in Morecambe

and was handed a box of fishing flies by four-year-old Elizabeth, whose family run the Troutflies UK shop.

Elizabeth's mother Annie, 35, said: "She was very excited to meet a real-life

prince, although I think she thought he would be more like Prince Eric from Disney."
