Scarborough Seafest sets sail Friday 24th to Sunday 26th July 2015 with a raft of activities for the whole family to enjoy!

Scarborough's 17th Annual Seafest Maritime Festival will once again host another weekend full of free live music, free cooking demonstrations and entertainment for all to enjoy, organised by Scarborough Borough Council in partnership with Welcome to Yorkshire and cultural development agency, Create.

Highlights of this year’s event will include workshops and a performance by Leeds band Hope and Social, headliners at last year’s Yorkshire Festival; ukulele band Some Like it Ossett; poetry from A Firm of Poets; street theatre from Artizani Theatre Company, Artemis Lion Fish and Talking Birds, and a brand new arts marquee, with free drop-in arts sessions and story-telling.

There’ll also be rock-pooling and fossil-hunting walks from Hidden Horizons, a line-up of top chefs from around the region giving cookery demonstrations, a full programme of music headed by DJ Tooley, and the traditional blessing of the boats.

Plans for this year's festival are still underway, so make sure you bookmark this page to keep up-to-date with all of our latest news.
