Staithes Festival of Art & Heritage

Staithes Festival of Art & Heritage

Details

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festivals on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend over 150 artists in over 90 cottages and public spaces around the village, become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

There are talks, walks, workshops and live music from soul to sea shanties. After dark the village lights up with installations and an outdoor film show. Refuel in the local pubs and cafes or one of the visiting pop ups like the harbourside seafood shack.

Make it your event of the year.

Self-Assessed Accessibility Details

Notes

We regret that Staithes is not easily accessible for wheelchair users and anyone with mobility problems. The road down into the old village is very steep as is the access to the Cowbar side. A free taxi service will be available from the public car park to take visitors up and down the hill. The main street is cobbled and there are numerous narrow passageways and steps. The harbour side is largely flat and suitable for wheelchairs as is the bridge and Cowbar side of the village by the lifeboat station.The pop-up galleries vary in accessibility but most of them are old cottages with narrow doorways and steps with limited wheelchair access.
