SHOPPING & SERVICES SCARBOROUGH 2017
For families and children of all ages, digging in the clean sands, riding on a donkey, exploring the rock pools and bathing in Scarborough’s seawater are pastimes that are as popular as ever. For nearly 400 years, Scarborough has been a seaside resort attracting hundreds of thousands to sample the delights of its twin bays. It was in 1626 that the medicinal properties of Scarborough’s spring water were ‘discovered’ by Mrs Tomyzin Farrer. ‘Taking the waters’ soon became a locally accepted medicine and stories about their fame soon spread. Doctors started to promote sea bathing as a healthy pastime and advised healthy males to bathe for 5 minutes whilst ladies and children should only stay in the water for 2 minutes. Soon Scarborough experienced an influx of visitors and responded accordingly by providing accommodation and other attractions. Thus the seaside resort of Scarborough was born. After the railway from York was opened in 1845, visitor numbers grew and in the following years many of the attractions still loved today were built.

FREDDIE GILROY AND THE BELSEN STRAGGLERS This popular giant steel sculpture by Durham artist Ray Lonsdale, which is situated on Royal Albert Drive in North Bay, was given to the Town by local resident Maureen Robinson in 2011. “I’ve been saving up for years to buy something for Scarborough” said Maureen, “and ‘Freddie’ seemed the perfect thing, as a thank you to Scarborough... and for the happy years we have spent here”. Fred Gilroy was born in 1921, the son of a Durham miner and became a bricklayer at his local colliery. In 1939 he was called up into active service and became a Gun Aimer in the Royal Artillery, later becoming a Regimental Police Officer. On 15th April 1945, Fred was part of the British 11th Armoured Division, which took the surrender of the German concentration camp at Bergen Belsen. They were met with the horrendous sight of over 20,000 corpses and 50,000 inmates many of whom were critically ill with typhus, dysentery and tuberculosis. These sights affected Fred tremendously and after celebrating his 24th birthday in the camp, he later confessed that he “had sat and cried on every birthday since that fateful day” Fred died of cancer in November 2008. His nephew described him as “a kind and loving man who made friends easily and displayed warmth” an attribute captured in the sculpture.

ST MARTINâ€™S CHURCH St.Martin-on-the-Hill is a beautiful example of the medievalism of Victorian art. It is an internationally renowned and precious example of Pre-Raphaelite art. It was designed by the famous architect George Frederick Bodley. He employed the new firm of Morris and Co to design the stunning decorations. The exquisite stained glass is by William Morris, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Philip Webb and Ford Madox Brown. The pulpit, fabrics and wall paintings are spectacularly decorated.

Portraying ordinary lives and extraordinary stories, this year’s summer season at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre features the world premieres of two plays plus revivals of some old favourites. The season opens on 15 June with Jim Cartwright’s blockbuster The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. This hugely popular play about a shy, reclusive girl who discovers a remarkable hidden talent for impersonating great singers plays until 19 August. On 13 July, Alan Ayckbourn’s Taking Steps joins the repertoire. Widely regarded as one of the playwright’s funniest pieces, it can be seen until 5 October. Amelia Bullmore’s Di and Viv and Rose, a funny and poignant look at female friendship across the years, plays from 3 to 26 August. The season is rounded off by those two world premieres: from 1 September to 7 October, Alan Ayckbourn’s A Brief History of Women tells the story of one man from the age of 17 to 77 and the various women in his life. From 14 September to 7 October, Ali Taylor’s Goth Weekend is set in Scarborough and Whitby during the world famous Goth festival.
