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.

Alison Hemingway

Alison grew up in Yorkshire, regularly visiting the Whitby area with the friend who has kindly offered her cottage for the festival. Her home now is in Pembrokeshire where she paints and exhibits with several groups, specially enjoying "plein aire" painting and sketching. She is inspired by the coastal light and colours at home but also paints around the country on trips in the motor home she shares with her husband and springer spaniel.

Venue: 5 Cowbar Cottages
