Scarborough Open Air Theatre

Details

As Europe's largest open air theatre, this iconic venue was re-opened in grand style in the summer of 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen.

The historic site, situated on the Yorkshire Coast in the beautiful town of Scarborough, is proud to host some of the finest national and international acts.

With the likes of Elton John, Olly Murs, James, Jesse J, Tom Jones, Boyzone, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Elaine Paige and UB40 having already performed to thousands of adoring fans, the stage is now set for what promises to be another great year at the OAT!
