Plan Your Event

Planning on staging an event along the Yorkshire Coast?

Our specialist team of event organisers have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to supporting the safe planning and regulation of events and filming along the Yorkshire Coast.

Every year along the Yorkshire Coast we host a wide range of successful events. Each event is different as they come in all shapes and sizes and take place in a variety of locations and venues. From amateurs organising their first event, to large scale international event management companies, we have seen them all. Our specialist events team here at DYC have a wealth of experience when it comes to staging major events. We're responsible for planning, organizing and overseeing a number of large and hugely popular annual festivals along the coast, including Scarborough Armed Forces Day, Seafest and the UK Pro Surf Scarborough Surf Festival.

Together all of these events contribute to making the Yorkshire Coast an exciting place to be.
