What's On in Scarborough

Sport, music, dance, food, art – you name it, and Scarborough probably has a festival for it.
 
The town is famous for one of the longest-running sports festivals anywhere in the world – the annual Cricket Festival, which takes place in August and brings crickets-lovers from all over the world.But it’s also a Mecca for motorcycling fans, with the internationally famous Oliver’s Mount circuit hosting events throughout the year, including the Barry Sheene Road Race Festival.

And in recent years, Scarborough has become a must-visit for jazz-lovers, with September’s festival headlined by global stars such as Courtney Pine and Nigel Kennedy. That’s followed in October by the annual surfing festival, the biggest event on the Pro Surf UK circuit.
