Nothing could be nicer than a family trip to Scarborough, walking along the beach, looking out to the sea and eating good old Scarborough fish and chips! Or could it?…How about during your stay you try something different? Recently celebrity chefs have championed fish in its many different forms and have proved you don’t need it ‘battering’ for it to taste good. In Scarborough we have a variety of top quality restaurants and cafes creating fish dishes, which don’t involve deep-frying. Try some oak and apple wood smoked local haddock or cod, perfect with a poached egg, some gorgeous crab cakes, linguine or ravioli or some local sea bass cooked whole and stuffed with herbs of your choice. With such a wide variety of local fish, we have something to offer everyone from the rich taste of Brill to the creamy taste of Hake. Have you tried lemon sole fillets rolled around some prawns and baked in the oven or floured and fried local mackerel as a filling for a perfect sandwich? While you are here, take advantage of our fish merchants selling local produce and ask them to vacuum-pack your favourite Scarborough fish so when you leave you take a taste of your holiday with you. Welcome to Scarborough, enjoy the fish and chips but also experience the full range of what we have to offer and whether battered on un-battered make sure it’s local. Written by Jo Swift, who, with her husband Steve are the proprietors of Mainprizes in St Thomas Street selling fresh local fish and shellfish.

NEVER swim or bodyboard in these areas.

SCARBOROUGH – THE FIRST SEASIDE RESORT For families and children of all ages, digging in the clean sands 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 five minutes whilst ladies and children should only stay in the water for two 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.


TOP PROGRAMME OF ROAD RACING AHEAD For 2013 the Auto 66 Club have attracted a super line up of events at the Oliver’s Mount Race Circuit. The club have dropped the annual Bike Week to concentrate on the Road Racing events. The very first Road Race of the season in the UK will be the Ian Watson on 21st April. The Barry Sheene meeting has become a full week end of events, with racing for Modern and Classic machines. The meeting will include Parades for Classic Race Bikes as well as the Yorkshire Coast British Motorcycle Club, who will parade Vintage and Classic Machines. There will also be parades for the Itallian, Benelli machines. The following month will see the annual Cock o’ the North Continental road races. The club are hoping to attract competitors from all parts of Europe to this event Rounding off the Road Race season in Scarborough will be the International Gold Cup, which is the premier Road Race event in England, attracting the top TT riders and a huge crowd As well as the road racing the club also run two Speed Hillclimb events at Oliver’s Mount which cater for all classes of Vehicle from Vintage to Modern, including two, three and four wheel machines. The first event is the Scarborough Festival of Speed on 4th & 5th May, the second one is a National event on 18th August. Keep an eye on the Auto 66 web page for any updates and the latest information

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. One of only two or three YMCAs in the country to have a theatre, Scarborough’s is probably the best equipped to showcase 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. 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. 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 wellearned. You can be confident of experiencing a thoroughly entertaining evening. This year’s shows promise great things… LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION 3-6 April will be a variety show inspired by famous films and shows. CHARITY GALA SHOWCASE 10-12 May - to raise funds for the theatre’s on-going development. GREASE 22 July-29 August, is the YMCA’s summer show - if you are going to see any show this year - make it this one! A CHRISTMAS CRACKER in November and December. SLEEPING BEAUTY the YMCA’s pantomime will finish the year on a high. ALSO BOOK TICKETS FOR:

Charity Gala Showcase 10 & 11 May at 7.30pm 12 May at 2pm Adults £8, Concs £7, Family (2 Ad & 2 Con) £25


Get those toes tapping and those hands clapping to this mega-musical 22 July - 29 August every Mon-Thurs at 7.30pm Adults £9, Concs £8, Family (2 Ad & 2 Con) £30
