Welcome to Coastival and the beautiful Yorkshire Coast

This year we’re all about exploring and celebrating this wonderful coast, its landscapes, people and stories in all their glory! Be put behind bars, go under water, have a magical illuminated adventure or have your selfie animated on a giant scale with our four new Coastival Commissions. Join us for a weekend of headline acts including Cast, Asian Dub Foundation, Snake Davis and Hope & Social, plus loads of other free music events for a variety of tastes.

Enjoy our mini film festival, visit workshops, performances and artist talks. Animated Objects Theatre bring us The Song of the Leviathan, and if visual arts are your thing, then explore the various galleries around town. There’s the return of Rollercoastival, with even more creative stuff for kids, plus our spectacular opening event Polar Quest, which takes us on a journey over the icy wastes (otherwise known as Scarborough Seafront!) by Shackleton and his crew.

Thank you for your continued support over the years and we hope you have a fabulous weekend! Keep visiting the website to keep up with our news!
