Scarborough is one of the latest towns to take up the Totally Locally campaign to highlight the tremendous range of independent local traders and service providers in the area. Launched in 2013 and supported by Scarborough & District Chamber of Trade, there are now over 400 businesses supporting the campaign and a real community spirit has developed around the town. Independent traders in Scarborough offer a vast range of goods and services including exclusive gifts and house wares, children’s toys and clothes, a host of different crafts, cafés, sweet shops, DIY supplies, photographers and many, many more. Look out for the Totally Locally posters in the shops offering special deals throughout the season. Statistics prove that if everyone living or visiting Scarborough spent just £5 a week with local independent traders then an extra £10.6 million would be added to the local economy every year. Having a vibrant economy means that Scarborough can become an even better place to live, work and visit. A number of successful events have already been organised and many more are planned including a Totally Locally Wedding Fayre on the 3rd and 4th May at Woodend in the Crescent.

The North Bay Railway The North Bay Railway, built in 1931, has been delighting young and old for the past 83 years and is truly part of Scarborough’s rich heritage. Running from Peasholm Station through Northstead Manor Gardens to Scalby Mills near the Sealife Centre, the 20” gauge railway is almost a mile long and offers beautiful views of the North Bay. Four locomotives are currently used on the line, the first one being ‘Neptune’ which arrived in 1931 and was the first engine of its gauge, built by Hudswell Clarke, for a cost of £1000. It is the oldest diesel hydraulic locomotive in the world. After a successful first season it was decided to commission a sister locomotive ‘Triton’, which was built in 1932. Two other locomotives arrived in 2006 after seeing service at Golden Acre Park in Leeds, Morecambe, Kilverstone, Great Woburn and Cleethorpes. ‘Robin Hood’ is a tank engine built by the same company in 1932 and ‘Poseidon’ was built in 1933. The line, operated by the North Bay Railway Company Ltd, offers a wide range of other attractions, including the Glass House Bistro, The New Skytrail, Boating Lake, Water Walking Balls and Historic Water Chute.



2014 is an exciting year for Scarborough Museums Trust. We have a busy programme of events at the Rotunda and Scarborough Art Gallery and we have introduced new admission prices. Now, for only £3 you can get unlimited visits* to both the Gallery and the Rotunda for 12 months. Children are free. We start the year off at the Gallery (25 Jan – 20 March) with ‘Worn to Be Wild’ an exhibition of costumes created by designer Kate Plumtree, then ‘Masterstrokes’ from 29 March to 29 June, an amazing selection of highlights from York Art Gallery’s collections. 2014 is of course the Centenary of the outbreak of World War I. Our ‘Remember Scarborough’ project, funded by the Arts Council, commemorates the Bombardment of Scarborough by German warships on 16th December 1914, the first effective attack on British soil by a foreign power in over 800 years. We are working with partners across the region and a major exhibition will run at the Gallery from 26 July 2014 to Jan 4th 2015. At the Rotunda we will be exploring the building, collections and the coast through the work of artists and on September 12 –14th we will be hosting a Fossil Festival. Watch out for more details on our website

Find us on Twitter and Facebook too. We look forward to seeing you!!


HAIRY BOB’S SKATE PARK Opened in 2009, Hairy Bob’s Skate Park is a FREE outdoor concrete skate park and dirt jump area located next to the sea in Scarborough’s North Bay approximately half way round the marine drive. This high quality skate park is very popular with boarders, bladers, micro-scooter riders and BMXers.

With 24 hour CCTV surveillance, regular users of the park respect the basic rules of no alcohol, no glass, no dogs and a recommendation that safety equipment is worn at all times.

If you are visiting Scarborough for the first time, or are fairly new to the town, you may not have heard about the wonderful YMCA Theatre. Seating 290 people in air-conditioned comfort, the theatre boasts tiered seating giving an excellent view from virtually every seat and a welcoming atmosphere that puts audiences at ease. One of the best-equipped theatres in the area, the YMCA Theatre is the number-one choice for the amazing wealth of talented amateur performers from the town and further afield and is situated just 5 –10 minutes’ walk from the shopping precinct, with lots of parking nearby. Although the theatre hosts mostly amateur productions, don’t be put off by thoughts of cringe-worthy, under-rehearsed plays and musicals, performed by people who can’t hold a note. The reputation gained over the past five decades for staging top-quality and terrific value for money productions has been well-earned.  You can be confident of experiencing a thoroughly entertaining evening. This year’s line-up features some ‘don’t miss’ shows, including: Jesus Christ Superstar 10-16 Apr – a contemporary, rock opera production of this iconic musical Summer Holiday 21 July -28 Aug – the perfect show for the summer.  You’ve seen the film, now come and see the stage version as ‘Don’ and his friends drive their bus across Europe. A Christmas Cracker 5-7 Dec – a festive treat to get you in the mood for Christmas. Aladdin 26 Dec - 3 Jan 2015 – a traditional pantomime for the whole family to enjoy.

As well as those detailed above, there are many more productions on offer throughout the year – see the listings within this publications or visit for details of all shows appearing at the YMCA. Tickets can be booked at the YMCA Box Office on St Thomas Street, or by calling 01723 506750
