Naval Warfare

Naval Warfare

Naval Warfare

“The smallest manned navy in the world!”

Peasholm Park is a haven of tranquillity in our North Bay – unless the battle ships are taking pot shots at one another!

At times during the summer season, war breaks out on the Lake when 20ft replica boats recreate the tensions of a battle at sea.

For more than 80 years the “Battle of Peasholm” has been played out for 30 minutes three times every week during the summer season, delighting audiences who still find it hard to believe that these boats are mostly manpowered. Until 1929, all the boats were manpowered, but then electricity was introduced and now only the larger boats need to be steered by Council employees.

In the early days, the models were First World War battleships, called Dreadnaughts, mystery ships called Q-ships, a passenger liner called Orantes and a U-boat.

After the Second World War, the fleet was replaced with new vessels – this time the battle that was recreated was the Battle of the River Plate.

The British boats were HMS Ajax, Achilles and Exeter. The German battleship was the Graf Von Spee; the Royal Mail liner Asturias and a submarine completed the new fleet.

Around 1960, aircraft were introduced, altering the play of the ships but adding to the excitement for audiences who could not seem to get enough of the Battles!

Also in the 1960s more ships were added to the fleet – HMS Jervis Bay, British Pride and even the Ark Royal.

Although some of the smaller boats are steered by electricity and electricity is certainly used to power the aircraft, most of the boats in the Park, even today, are powered by Scarborough Borough Council employees!

A spokesperson for the Scarborough Tourist Information Bureau joked “It is of course the smallest manned navy in the world!”

Today the Battles still take place but now there is far less emphasis on recreating either World War; just on unnamed “friends” and an equally unnamed “enemy”. Gunfire and smoke continue to fill the air, however, and the aircraft drop bombs from above.

People flock to watch the Battles and they have been reported on and mentioned in many newspapers around the world.

Why don’t you take the time out of a sunny summer afternoon, to watch this amazing show?

The shows usually begin around the last weekend of May and continue until September 1st. In June, the shows are on Saturdays only, in July they are on Thursdays and Saturdays and during August, they are on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

CLIFF RICHARD

TICKETS ON SALE 10AM - 18/11/18

CLIFF RICHARD

TO RETURN FOR SUMMER 2019 GIG AT SCARBOROUGH OPEN AIR THEATRE

The UK’s most successful hitmaker, Cliff Richard, is returning to Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2019.

It is announced today that Cliff will headline Europe’s largest open air arena on Wednesday June 26.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 at scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

The show marks a return to the Yorkshire coast for the music legend following his sell-out show at Scarborough OAT in 2017 and comes as the singer is celebrating the 60th anniversary of his first single Move It! being released.

Marking this significant milestone, Warner's Music is releasing a new album of completely original songs. The album Rise Up is Cliff's 104th official UK release,  although it is the first album for 14 years, since 2004's Something's Goin' On, that features completely new material rather than Cliff's unique interpretation of classic songs.

Cliff is the second 2019 headliner to be revealed for Scarborough OAT following the announcement earlier today that Kylie Minogue will perform at the Yorkshire coast venue on Thursday August 1.

The announcements mark the start of the 2019 season and follow a record breaking 2018 which saw the venue attract more than 90,000 music fans.

Venue programmer Peter Taylor, director of promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “Cliff Richard is without a doubt a legend of the music industry. He has enjoyed massive success for 60 years and wows his audience time and time again.

“We have worked with Cliff on numerous shows and tours and are absolutely delighted to be working with him again, and especially to be bringing him back to Scarborough.

“The crowds loved Cliff in Scarborough in 2017 and I have no doubt they will have an absolute ball once again watching and hearing their hero perform the hits that made him a household name as well as his new material which is sure to be a massive hit.”

Cliff’s new album Rise Up will be released on November 23. The album’s title track is currently riding high in the vinyl charts and is his 145th official UK release, showing that Cliff continues to be a much-loved music legend, and someone who is very capable of entertaining with great energy and passion.

In 60 years, Cliff has recorded almost 1,300 song titles, composed 100 songs, achieved 14 number one singles (40 Top 5, 68 Top 10, and 96 Top 20), and seven number one albums (28 Top 5, 44 Top 10, and 53 Top 20). Move It!, where it all started, is the most recorded song in Cliff's back catalogue, numbering 23 different versions.

Able to change with the times and tastes and remaining hugely popular, Cliff nonetheless has stayed faithful to his rock and roll roots throughout. Because, when many people would be thinking of retiring or settling down to a quieter life, Cliff Richard continues to draw massive crowds to his concerts and regularly reaches the top ten with his albums. Not bad for someone who critics thought wouldn't last way back in 1958!

Tickets for Cliff Richard’s headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 viawww.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com or from Scarborough Open Air Theatre Box Office (01723 818111) and the Discover Yorkshire Coast Tourism Bureau (01723 383636).

SUMMER CLOTHES SWAP

SUMMER CLOTHES SWAP

  • FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2019

  • 6:00 PM  10:00 PM

  • WOODEND CREATIVE (MAP)

This is the first ever Woodend clothes swap, and we're so excited! It will be an evening of fun, friendship, live music, and of course, clothes.

Here are the ground rules:

1. Get yourself a ticket! Available on eventbrite (link on page, or http://yaysummer.eventbrite.co.uk)

2. Bring in the clothes/ accessories you'd like to swap to Yay Coffee BEFORE 24th June. Think summery, but basics are welcomed (say that pair of trousers you've never worn). We'll then exchange those clothes for coupons.

For example:
Basic top/ pair of shorts: 1 coupon
Pair of trousers/ skirt: 2 coupons
Dressy top/ basic dress: 2 coupons
Dresses: 3 coupons
Special items (say full length dresses/ designer items/ coats/ jackets/ special shoes) : 4 coupons

Please bring clothes in clearly labelled with your name so we can distribute coupons accordingly. We’ll give these to you on the night when you hand in your ticket!

We'll exercise discretion when distributing coupons to try and ensure the process is as fair as possible. We also ask that you only bring items you'd be proud to see someone else wearing.

We also want to remind you that the swapping stage is final- you may be able to buy your clothes back, but we can’t guarantee it!

Any clothes that don’t get swapped will go to a good home.

3. On the evening:

Doors open from 6pm for browsing. Pick up your bubbles, and take a look at what's on offer- grab a drink & chill with friends.

From 6:45 swapping begins! There'll be mirrors and a photo booth so you can double check that you do indeed look AWESOME in that new dress. ;)

Bring your coupons along and swap them for your new outfit, and hey presto, you're the owner of some fresh new clothes!

There'll be hair & makeup too for a small additional charge (£5)

Bar will be open all evening, and light nibbles will be provided

Live music from Lottie Holmes, Maisie., and Esther throughout the evening

ALL PROFITS from ticket sales will go to Hope For Justice, who exist to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society. There'll be the chance to donate more on the night should you wish to. Further info about the charity can be found on this website:

A TRIP TO THE BEACH & THE FOURTH WALL - Presented by YMCA Musical Theatre School

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Sat 29th June 2019 - Sun 30th June 2019

A TRIP TO THE BEACH by Sarah Cowan
Humorous tale of a contemporary school outing.
Miss Brown takes her class on an educational trip to the seaside. A diverse, argumentative group of children sets out to examine cliff-top habitat, an examination which comes too close to comfort for Miss Brown.

THE FOURTH WALL – ONE ACT TEEN ADVENTURE COMEDY by Jonathan Smith
For those of you that do not know the most important aspect of the moments leading up to the performance of a staged play, LISTEN UP! The fourth wall exists and to all kamikaze’s, beware!
Jack, Jason and Sarah fail to heed this fierce and true warning when they decide to do a bit of exploring on a blank stage, in ‘The Fourth Wall’ – a one act teen adventure comedy.

When the performers discover the kids, they call off their show in the beginning scene and attempt to catch them and take them to the stage manager. When one of the three kids gets caught by the performers, the other two kids must equip themselves with prop weapons and team up with theatre thugs to fight their way through egotistical lead roles, a stunned narrator, epic soldiers, chaotic scene changes and a short tempered stage manager to get their friend back.

In this comedy, a few frivolous minutes of exploration unravel a series of unfortunate events for a show that is already a hot mess. It is up to the Stage Manager to get it together before the show goes on, as he carefully weighs the risk, reward and raucousness of running a revue.

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes pioneered the alt-country and Americana music movement in Australia, beginning with 2010 debut album Ballad of a Young Married Man. 

The band have played just about every major festival on the Australian calendar and have toured with the likes of Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Joan Armatrading, Shawn Colvin and The North Mississippi Allstars, just to name a few. 

Even on large festival stages Lachlan and the band create the feeling of a warm, intimate space - the emphasis is on the storytelling (as much between songs as during them) and the 'fourth wall' is most definitely broken. The band is well known for spontaneous sets

Years and Years

It has been a whirlwind four years since Years & Years’ 2015 debut smash hit album ‘Communion’ landed with the massive hit singles ‘King’, ‘Desire’ and ‘Shine’.

The band followed it up with last year’s breath-taking ‘Palo Santo’ which spawned the singles ‘Sanctify’, Top 10 hit ‘If You’re Over Me’ and ‘All for You’.

The album was a Top 3 hit in the UK and topped the Billboard Dance/Electronic Album Chart in the US.

Years & Years – Olly Alexander, Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Türkmen – are famed for their electrifying live shows. They are the reigning ‘GQ Live Act of The Year’ and have built a massive fanbase around the globe.

And it’s been a brilliant start to 2019 for the band. Recent single ‘Play’ with Jax Jones went Top 10 in the UK alongside a nomination for Best British Band at this year’s BRIT Awards

Madness

British music legends Madness are bringing their 40th anniversary celebrations to Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

Fresher of face and fleeter of foot than ever, it’s hard to believe 2019 will mark four decades since a rag tag of self-proclaimed ‘hoolies and urchins’ first emerged, gloriously unreconstructed, from the back streets of Camden Town fusing reggae, punk and pop on their classic debut album ‘One Step Beyond’.

Now in the 40th year of their near-Imperial reign over popular music, 2019 sees a raft of activity including a not-to-be-missed show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Friday 19th July 2019.

The young Scotsman has achieved successive Radio 1 A-List tracks, amassed more than 330 million plays across streaming services and was shortlisted for the 2019 Brits Critics’ Choice award.

As well as selling more than 90,000 tickets for his own headline shows, Lewis has also joined such musical peers as Sam Smith, Rag’n’ Bone Man, Bastille and Niall Horan on tour, playing to audiences in excess of 500,000.

THE WIZARD OF OZ - Presented by YMCA Productions

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Tue 23rd July 2019 - Thu 29th August 2019

L. Frank Baum’s classic novel comes to life in The Wizard of Oz. This faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features all the most beloved songs and moments from the 1939 classic film, brought to life onstage. Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.

Season’s Greetings

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

 

Cast: Matt Addis, Eileen Battye, Rachel Caffrey, Bill Champion, Andy Cryer, Michael Lyle, Frances Marshall, Mercy Ojelade, Leigh Symonds

 

Designer                                            Kevin Jenkins

Lighting Designer                            Jason Taylor

Casting Director                               Sarah Hughes CDG

 

25 July to 28 September (in rep)

 

A revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s classic comedy Season’s Greetings opens at the Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.

 

Directed by the author, it will be performed by a cast of nine: Matt Addis, Eileen Battye, Rachel Caffrey, Bill Champion, Andy Cryer, Michael Lyle, Frances Marshall, Mercy Ojelade and Leigh Symonds. Design is by Kevin Jenkins and lighting design by Jason Taylor.

 

Season’s Greetings premiered in Scarborough at the SJT’s former home at Westwood in 1980; this is the first time it has been performed in Scarborough since.

 

Neville and Belinda are hosting their extended family over a long weekend. The presence of two tyrannical uncles – Bernard, whose ham-fisted annual puppet shows are a source of dread to young and old alike, and TV addict Harvey – promises to stir up trouble from the start. And that’s before you add to the mix broken toys, creaking marriages and guest novelist Clive, whose relationship with Belinda’s sister Rachel is going nowhere, causing him to look for love elsewhere.

 

Alan Ayckbourn explains that the play was originally inspired by his two sons mounting a puppet show and his getting involved: “I remember Steven saying: ‘This is only meant to be fun!’ and running crying out of the room as I shouted: ‘It may be fun to you, but this is a show and we’ve got to do it professionally’. By the time it went on, all the joy had gone out of it. Afterwards I thought: ‘What the hell am I doing?’

 

“I think everyone has had at least one disastrous Christmas and so the audience relates to it. I used to say: ‘You may think you’ve had a bad Christmas but wait until you see this one…’”

 

Season’s Greetings can be seen in the Round at the SJT, in rep, from Thursday 25 July to Saturday 28 September 2019. Tickets, priced from £10, are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com.

Fri 16th August 2019

The Cloughton Rat Pack are a group of five local lads - Paul Mintoft (Sog), Steve Chambers, Tim Osbourne, Clive Welburn and Jeremy (Jez) Pratt - who all have a love of the sounds and humour of the famous Rat Pack - Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.

The show features many of the songs made famous by these huge American icons. All backed by the fantastic King Willy's Big Band, under the direction of Will Oseland. There will also be madcap humour and antics in abundance!

The Cloughton Rat Pack have donated all the proceeds from their previous shows to local charities. They have raised thousands over the last couple of years. Tonight's lucky charities are Saint Catherine's and Scarborough YMCA.

RAT PACK taken from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The RAT PACK was a super-group of actors originally centred on their leader, Frank Sinatra. Later it was revealed by Sinatra that Joey Bishop headed the bunch. By the 1960's, it was the name used by the press and the general public to refer to a later variation of the group that called itself "the Summit" or "the Clan", featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop; they appeared together on stage and in films in the early 1960s, including the movies Ocean's 11, Sergents 3, and Robin and the 7 Hoods (in the last film, Bing Crosby replaced Lawford). Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were regarded as the group's lead members.

Critically acclaimed guitarist Clement Regert's Wild Card is a melting pot of musical ideas, fusing urban rhythms and grooves with a Latin attitude.

Trumpet, sax, trombone, guitar, Hammond Organ, drums, and American vocalist Corina Kwami. should have a tremendous impact in the Spa Grand Hall.

Wild Card have made a name for themselves on the European jazz scene in the last few years and have a residency upstairs at Ronnie Scotts.

‘The disparate genres tumble over one another in a cheerful riot... Great tunes, great musicianship and great fun’  Londonjazznews.com

‘A festival highlight - groovacious music purveyed through jazz edginess to an appreciative audience. Wild Card indeed!’ Paul Pace (Booker Ronnie Scotts)

YMCA Theatre, Scarborough, YO11 1DY

Wed 25th September 2019

Fire & Rain Supported by Gracie Falls
(perform the Music of James Taylor & Carole King)

Fire and Rain is not a tribute or sound-a-like act. It’s simply a collection of five of the best musicians from the North of England coming together to play music they love.
Expect the classic James Taylor & Carole King songs played with skill, passion, emotion, humour and humility.  Incredibly in-demand musicians in their own right, Tom Townsend (The Tom Townsend Blues Band) Rich Adams & Mark Gordon (Stony), Paul Tilley and Bob Walker abandon their usual bands and projects for this one-off tour to bring the joy of Taylor & King’s music to you in what they call a ‘magical musical holiday’. 
The band is delighted that Gracie Falls and Alex Staples will be supporting them on a number of the concerts. Gracie is an award winning singer and songwriter in her own right, and she will be accompanied by the wonderful guitarist Alex Staples.
Building on the success of the last few years, ‘Fire and Rain’ are delighted to be able to bring this wonderful concert to the YMCA Theatre, Scarborough and hope that you will join them to celebrate the music of two timeless singer songwriters and performers in what will be a memorable evening of first class entertainment.

GRACIE FALLS
 
Gracie Falls has the voice of an angel. Her haunting melodies and engaging lyrics draws the listener to the stories she has to tell. From slow ballads to lively renditions of her own songs and a few country ballad covers she takes you on her musical journey. It is hardly surprising that SHE IS A NATIONAL AWARD WINNING SONGWRITER and worthy of it. Gracie beat three female song writing talents in the 2016 London final of the UK unsigned songwriter of the year 2016. 
Gracie is frequently backed by her partner Alex Staples who is an amazing guitar accompanist.
The following two reviews probably best sum up Gracie –but come to see her and judge for yourself!

REVIEWS
"Gracie's 3 words to describe her music are "emotive, unique, and relatable". And to describe herself: "bubbly, passionate and headstrong". After speaking to her I can add many more positive words to describe her; confident, friendly, professional, driven and down to earth being just a few. And of course she is incredibly talented. Her music is poignant and her lyrics engaging. Her songs will linger in your mind long after they've finished." Lucy, Britz n Beatz

"I was massively impressed with Gracie. She has one of those really lovely angelic voices and the whole audience was rapt with her, you could've heard a pin drop at certain times...her voice just rang out across the wood. I just stood there completely transfixed by that..."
Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 - Latitude Festival 2016

POP UP CINEMA RETURNS TO DALBY FOREST - WITH A SLEEP OVER



Cinema goers can enjoy some of the latest films and all time classics in the beautiful surroundings of Dalby Forest when Pop-Up Cinema Yorkshire's GIANT movie screen returns this summer.



There are 6 screenings planned for Summer 2019 with the films Bohemian Rhapsody, Jurassic Park, Mary Poppins Returns, Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and by popular demand, The Greatest Showman. Each screening also offers the option of overnight camping in the forest. 



Pop-up Cinema Yorkshire is part of Scarborough based company C3 Events who have previously been responsible for the hugely popular Beached Festival, Scarborough's Open Air Theatre and the annual firework spectacular 'Starfire'. Their cinema screen has been 'popping-up' around Yorkshire for the last five years, including sell-out screenings of Beauty & the Beast, Star Wars - The Force Awakens and The Greatest Showman.



Forestry England are working in partnership with Pop up Cinema Yorkshire to provide visitors with a chance to see their favourite films in unique forest venues throughout the year. A high quality cinema system will be erected for the events, as well as a range of themed food and drink stalls with a licenced bar.



Director of C3 Events Mike Lynskey said, "This is our fifth year showing movies in Dalby Forest and it's a fabulous place to watch a film. There is a brilliant atmosphere and obviously the forest is beautiful. We're billing the events as a "forest sleepover" as we are offering camping at all the Dalby events. You cannot normally camp out in the forest so were very lucky that Forestry England have allowed us to do this. It's quite a special thing. So pack your picnic and your tent and join us for an incredible cinematic forest adventure."



Tickets are available online at www.popupcinema.org priced from £14.50 for adults and £9.50 for children. Only a limited number of tickets are available, and early booking is essential to ensure a chance to be part of these events. The screenings take place in the evenings and begin at sunset.

Wildcard bring multi-award-winning gig theatre show Electrolyte to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

Award-winning theatre company Wildcard bring their gig theatre hit, Electrolyte, to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month as part of the company’s first tour, which sees them take in 32 venues across the UK and Ireland.

The tour follows their award-winning run at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, where the show scooped both the Mental Health Fringe Award and the Pleasance Best Newcomer Award. 

Directed by Olivier Award-winning director Donnacadh O’Briain, Electrolyte tells the story of Jessie from Leeds. The show is written in entirely spoken word poetry and is underscored throughout by six actor-musicians.  Jessie is dealing with the recent suicide of her father. She meets singer-songwriter Allie Touch, who is pursuing her music career in London. Allie's outlook inspires Jessie, who feels intensely oppressed by her life in Leeds. Impulsively, she follows Allie to London in pursuit of her mother, who left when she was young.

However, when she arrives in London things aren't quite as shiny as they seemed and the answers she seeks are buried deeper than she could ever have imagined.

The show is written by James Meteyard with music composed by Maimuna Memon. The cast comprises Megan Ashley, Chris Georgiou, James Meteyard, Ben Simon, Robyn Sinclair and Olivia Sweeney.

James Meteyard says: “We’re thrilled to be coming to Scarborough. When we founded the company in 2015 we had big dreams of taking our work to the regions and we’re beside ourselves that these dreams are becoming a reality. Mental health is rightfully becoming something which is acceptable to talk about, and we’re delighted to be part of the conversation. This show deals with tough subjects but has an uplifting message; we want to help people around the UK and Ireland to know that it’s okay not to be okay and promote the importance of community in combating poor mental health.’

The show was seen at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival in May. Director Andrew Eaton-Lewis, Arts Lead for the Mental Health Foundation, says: “We're very pleased to be presenting Electrolyte for a week of dates at this year's Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival. This is the second year that we've invited the winner of the Mental Health Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Fringe to return to Scotland for our nationwide festival, which is now in its 13th year. Electrolyte was a clear favourite among our panel of award judges; it's an exhilarating, inspirational show that tackles a very difficult subject with great sensitivity. We are also supporting Electrolyte's other tour dates across the UK, and are delighted that they will be helping to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation in its 70th anniversary year.’

Electrolyte can be seen in the Round at the SJT at 7.30pm on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 June. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

Steve Day’s Adventures in Dementia

Steve Day’s Adventures in Dementia

  • tephen Joseph Theatre, Westborough, Scarborough, YO11 1JW (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Stand-up comedian Steve Day brings his Edinburgh Fringe hit show Adventures in Dementia to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.

 

The show, on Wednesday 5 June, is a celebration of Steve's father, who died late last year after suffering from Alzheimer’s for the last eight years of his life.

 

It won rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, with its bittersweet mix of humour, music, nostalgia and love. At times joyful and at other times undeniably sad, this is a show that doesn't shy away from the truth about this terrible affliction yet somehow manages to find laughter in the tears, and even a singalong to celebrate Steve's love for his father.

 

Steve says: “Dementia is a national epidemic that not only affects those suffering but those that care for them: wives, husbands, sons, daughters, grandchildren. This is a show for all of them, to say that you are not alone, that what you are feeling is what I have been feeling, and that despite the pain you can laugh, you can sing, and remember your loved ones as they were.”

Steve Day describes himself as Britain’s only deaf comedian; if there are any others he hasn't heard. Actually there are a couple of others who have started since he wrote that joke, but it's only a joke after all.

Married with five children, Steve has been described as 'warm and witty' by The Scotsman and has received many other rave reviews whilst performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.

A familiar voice on Radio 4, Steve has appeared many times on You and Yours, was a token man on Woman's Hour, has appeared in two radio dramas, All Fingers and Thumbs with Bill Nighy, whom he punched dramatically, and Sound Barriers with Patricia Routledge and Caroline Quentin.

A disabled performer, Steve is more concerned with success in the mainstream comedy circuit, but is happy to 'deaf it up' as necessary if the money is ok and there are sandwiches. 

Adventures in Dementia can be seen in the Round at the SJT at 7.45pm on Wednesday 5 June. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

Mr King said they want to feature a diversity of art, including paintings, drawings, photography and 3-D work including ceramics, glassware and textiles.

He added: ‘We know this town has so many people who are really gifted. We want them to get involved and show us what they can do.’

All the exhibits will be up for sale with the artist receiving an agreed percentage of the sale price, said Mr King.

There promises to be something for everyone during the week with a busy programme of events.

·      Opening night with cheese and wine. Steve Brookes on piano

·      Open rehearsal of Staxton Singers

·      Film night showing Ewan McGregor in Christopher Robin

·      Scalby School music evening

·      Published artists and poets at literary evening

·      Scarborough Community Choir in concert

·      Singing vicar Revd. Mike Leigh and friends

·      Thanksgiving Praise Service

The festival is the latest of a series of fundraising events St Mark’s is staging as it aims to raise £250,000 to build an annex at the rear of the church by 2022.

The extension will include a kitchen and café area, toilets, an office, meeting rooms and storage space.

A new £95,000 roof has just been completed from grants, legacies and a series of fundraising events held over three years.

Services were held in the church hall on Coldyhill Lane until work to the roof as well as extensive rewiring inside the church was completed.

Looking ahead to the festival and daily exhibition, Mr King said: ‘Everybody is excited about what we have planned.

‘We hope people from across the town will come along and really enjoy all the festival has to offer with us.’

RAF 2019 Anniversary Tour

cache_1304943.jpg

With a series of 10 charity concerts, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust is pleased to announce their 2019 Anniversary Tour will start at the Spa in Scarborough on Friday 17th May. 

 

Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the charity, and in accordance with its charitable objects, this special 2019 tour will once again be ‘raising welfare funds by the performance of live music by Royal Air Force musicians’. Indeed, despite being one of the newest and smallest of the family of RAF Service charities, with no employees and managed by just three trustees, over these years the charity has established itself as one of the most significant organisers of Royal Air Force charity concerts, whilst also donating in excess of £60,000 to various Service charities.

 

Malcolm Goodman says that “following the success of the RAF Centenary Concert in Lincoln Cathedral and other RAF100 events in 2018, it is a privilege to present so many concerts by some of the finest military musicians in the country. With performances by the Central Band of the RAF, Band of the RAF College and Band of the RAF Regiment, along with RAF Swing Wing and the Royal Air Force Squadronaires, this will be a very special celebration year for the RAF Music Charitable Trust.”

 

Following the concert in Scarborough, the RAF bands will perform in Newark, Doncaster, Weston Super Mare, and uniquely in the cathedrals of Exeter, Chester and Sheffield, along with a series of three concerts in London.

 

The charity was established by Sergeant (Ret.) Malcolm Goodman MBE who was then a serving member of the Band of the RAF Regiment, and also Public Relations and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services. In his role as Honorary Administrator, from the charity’s home in Newark he is supported by two other volunteer trustees, Warrant Officer (Ret.) Trevor McDonald and Sergeant (Ret.) John Baigent. As former RAF musicians, all three trustees are also veterans of the First Gulf War, having served together on active service at Field Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during the 1991 conflict.

 

Following the appointment of former Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB CBE, the RAF Music Charitable Trust was registered with the Charity Commission in 2004.

Special guest at Scarborough Spa TONIGHT

Special guest at Scarborough Spa TONIGHT

MK.jpg

Mark Kingswood is the special guest for Jools Holland’s May tour, which calls at Scarborough Spa on Thursday.


Mark’s modern take on big-band jazz infused with pop sensibilities combines energy with elegance for a classy, ultra-cool style that harkens back to the days of crisp suits and the sexy sheen of the Rat Pack.  


But he is so much more than a talented crooner trotting out the classic songbook - he is a gifted songwriter with an unrivalled flair for taking traditional big band music and injecting a 21st century tone and lyricism – before finding his place in big band jazz, his varied career had taken him from winning childhood talent contests, numerous writing and production credits (including on the platinum selling Miley Cyrus / Hannah Montana soundtrack), as well as gold albums in Japan and Ireland.


The result of this journey is Mark’s debut album Strong – a destination on the musical journey he found himself on. He says: “I think it’s just good honest music. I love live orchestras and the energy those musicians send out. I like big voices, big drums, big strings, big brass”.


Growing up in Kent in a home where a host of music was played on the family stereo, Mark gravitated to the powerful and charismatic recordings of singers from the 60s to the 90s, many of them under the wing of producers such as Quincy Jones, Smokey Robinson and David Foster. 


Mark soon became fascinated not only with the voices but how the songs were written, recorded and produced. For many years, while honing his musical and compositional chops, he worked in studios learning the craft of engineering, producing, mixing and mastering from the ground up. 


“We weren’t really listening to a lot of chart-pop music, but music that featured singers with big, distinctive voices and where there were a lot of complex orchestral arrangements. I really developed a love for that kind of music and it spurred my interest in learning how to capture those sounds and that sort of power,” Mark said, adding that as a singer he began entering talent contests as a small child, and by 14, was helping out in studios, learning that side of the music business. 


“I’ve been fortunate getting a great deal of hands-on experience, working with different producers and songwriters and learning how to create and arrange a lot of different kinds of music. As a kid I hardly ever went out to play and wasn’t interested in things like football. I would just come home from school and sit at my keyboard for hours and hours trying to work out how to do things. I guess I just had this real insatiable hunger for music”.


The songs on Strong show off his range as a vocalist, writer, arranger and producer as they sway from brassy, up-tempo dancefloor numbers to charming, evocative ballads that would make Sinatra swoon. 


Looking to match the instrumental power with equally potent words, the lead-off single and title track Strong swings with sass but is infused with an uplifting positive lyrical message that can elevate the mood of any listener from the doldrums of life. 


“I wanted to write a song that has a strong message for someone going through a tough time. It’s an anthem really, an anthem of positivity and hope”. Another stand out on the album is Shine On, which is in a similar vein, but sees the song’s subject reaching out gain strength from those closest to them - “It’s a universal message about getting strength from the people around you”.


If there was a song that perfectly captured not only Mark’s music but his approach to music and the joy he gets from creating his own brand of big band jazz infused pop it’s Got a Thing for Swing. “It’s really me in a nutshell. It says everything I want to say about myself and acknowledges many of the greats who have come before me. Ultimately this song is like a musical autobiography: it says ‘here is where I am from, and here is where I am going’,” he said.


In a live setting, Mark and his 10-piece band perform many original compositions but also some of the more traditional songs of the genre. But Mark will always be an original artist first and foremost, and if he does record cover material, they will not be the songs typically borrowed from the swing/big band catalogue. For the Strong album, he jazzed up the massive REM hit, Losing my Religion, and also did an homage to the late great pop icon George Michael, with a cover of his song One More Try. 


“My album doesn’t conform to the standard crooner record formula, and that’s deliberate. Nobody else will really try to attack a rock song like Losing My Religion or even a pop song like One More Try and add the sort of Big Band instrumentation to it. I do take a cue from George Michael who, later in his career, started to get more into symphonic and Big Band arrangements. Robbie Williams is another guy who has kind of made that transition. But I think I am approaching it from a truly original perspective,” he said. 


With a fierce sense of creative independence and a confident approach to his brand of music, Mark is redefining what it means to be a modern-day crooner. More than an interpreter of the Great American Songbook, as a writer and producer he is building upon the magnificent foundation of those who have come before him through his ambitious and wholly original compositions.

Award-winning trumpet player, Chris Hodgkins, leads an outstanding Anglo/American quartet for this UK tour – New York based, South Korean Jinjoo Yoo on piano, guitarist Wayne Wilkinson and Alison Rayner on bass. 
 

"I had the opportunity to record and work with Wayne in the UK in 2017 and for the tour I added Alison Rayner - my favourite bass player," explains Hodgkins.  "A year ago I heard Jinjoo Yoo's work on a blog "Jazz Lives". I was knocked out with her playing, fresh; modern but with a marvellous grasp and redolence of the past - coincidentally Lance Liddle of Bebop Spoken Here gave Jinjoo a rave review."
 

The quartet will be performing some of their favourite standards as well as four original pieces written specially for the tour.  Wilkinson wrote 'Martino’s Waltz' in honour of the jazz guitarist Pat Martino who suffered a severe brain aneurysm and made a remarkable recovery by relearning the guitar by studying his own recordings.  'Two Hats and a Paper Bag’ is inspired by Rayner’s meeting in New York with Jaco Pastorius.  Yoo's new composition is dedicated to Mary Lou Williams, ‘To Mary With Love’ and inspired by the tune ‘Mary's Waltz’, also known as 'Bebop Waltz’, by Herbie Nichols. 
 

“‘Festooned with Trumpets’ is dedicated to Humphrey Lyttelton to whom I lent my trumpet for a concert at the Bull’s Head,” explains Hodgkins.  "A couple of weeks later I was listening to Humph present his programme on the BBC ,"The Best of Jazz", when he announced that he had left his horn home for the first time in a 60 year career and that I "arrived like the US Cavalry in the nick of time festooned with trumpets”. Hence the title."
