Saturday and Sunday 12th/13th September 2015

The Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage is now in its fourth year and has established itself as one of the most relaxed, friendly, must-go-to events in the regional arts calendar. During the Festival weekend, some 100+ cottages open their doors and become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. There are currently some 30 artists resident in the village, but the Festival is open to all artists of all abilities and attracts both professional and amateur artists from all over the country. Staithes heritage is also celebrated during the weekend in fossils, fishing, family history, smuggling, ironstone, alum and much more. There is live music, busking, workshops, talks, guided walks and delicious food and drink from our pubs, cafes, bistros, restaurants and pop-up tearooms. If you would like to register for the festival click on Artists & Venue at the top of this page. If you would like to run a pop-up café then click on the Food & Drink pages.
