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.

Vic Bamforth

Vic’s uniquely illustrated pieces usually involve themes relating to memory, place and storytelling. Whether invoking memories of the streets and fishing fleets of his own hometown of Hull, or illuminating corners of the history of his now local parish of Dudley, or exploring the subject of a significant commission, he depicts subjects with honesty, humour and enthusiasm. He can spend weeks on a single piece, preparing developmental drawings, hand painting them in his studio. The pieces are blown in the "hot shop," blowing studio, located in the Ruskin Glass Centre, Stourbridge. His work is held in many private and public collections worldwide including the Corning Museum of Glass, New York,
