Land and Stone Festival

9th-10th September 2023

Bridlington’s Land and Stone Festival is back on Saturday 9th September, giving visitors a chance to meet some of the UK’s most prominent and current land artists while browsing a selection of beautiful artwork made with completely natural, recycled and up-cycled materials.

From creating seemingly impossible stone balance sculptures, to huge beach drawings and cardboard box den building, the Land and Stone Festival encourages visitors to embrace their creativity with activities such as the popular Family Beach Art Challenge as well as the one hour meet and greet sessions with the artists.

The festival will look to kick off at 10am on both Saturday and Sunday, and tickets are available online.

Old Parcels Office Exhibition

8th September – 17th September 2023

Get ready to celebrate the history of entertainment in Scarborough with the ultimate heritage event – When the Entertainers Came to Town.

Coinciding with National Heritage Week, this event is a chance to look back at memorabilia that charts the growth of the music halls, dance halls, theatres and cinemas that followed the arrival of the railway and built up Scarbrough, making it the holiday town that it is today.

Many of the landmarks still remain and have revived themselves for the new generation of holidaymakers, while others lasted for just a short few years before being demolished. So, get ready to reminisce and look back at Scarbrough from over the years with this free to attend event.
