Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

Supplying Food & Drink at the Festival 

The Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage welcomes businesses large and small to apply to supply food and drink at the Festival.

Because of the nature of the village – limited vehicle access, narrow lanes, limited public space - there are few spaces available to position food outlets but we will do our best to accommodate suitable food suppliers. 

If you would like to be considered for a pitch at the Festival please read the information here and make sure you can comply with all the terms and conditions

If you wish to proceed with an application and you are an amateur and have a venue, eg. your own cottage or garden, you may go ahead and complete the online registration.

If you do not have a venue and/or you are a commercial caterer you should first Register Your Interest and provide us with as much detail as possible of your proposal.

If we can find you a venue and your proposal is approved we will ask you to register via the online registration system. 

Please note that this year commercial caterers ie those who regularly trade as a caterer, will be asked to pay the fee of £250 at registration. They will not be required to pay commission.
