TV, Film & Litreature on the Yorkshire Coast

Girl wearing flowery hat

There’s always something happening on the Yorkshire Coast whatever the time of year, from tiny village shows to major internationally renowned festivals. They cover, of course, music, food, art, theatre and sport, but here on the coast, we can go one better, and bring you festivals of angling, sailing, rowing, surfing and maritime history – you don’t get those inland.

Search for events by date and major events at a glance below.

Alternatively, visit the individual town and village sections of our website to find out more about what’s going on up and down the coast – we’re confident you’ll find something that feels tailor-made for you.
