The Staithes Weekender – 23-25 June 2023

29th May 2023

The coastal village of Staithes in the North York Moors National Park is celebrating its artistic roots and shining the spotlight on the huge pool of local creative talent with an extra event this summer, while at the same time reviving September’s popular Arts and Heritage weekend. The Staithes Weekender event will take place on 23-25 June, followed by the Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage on 15-17 September, which makes a welcome return after a four-year absence.

Both events are organised by the local community and underline the lure of the village. Having originally been an art colony for an influential group of Impressionist painters back in the late 1800s, Staithes retains an enduring appeal for artists who are inspired by the ever-changing light together with the dramatic seascapes and the quirky cottages lining the cobbled streets.
