Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

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

This year it's 15-17 September 2023.

During the weekend the doors of cottages in the village are thrown open as pop-up art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. 

The heritage of Staithes is celebrated through a programme of walks, talks, historic photographs, film shows, and a demonstration of how to make a lobster pot!

I was born in Lowestoft, home of the most easterly point in Gt Britain, where I spent much of my youth working on the fish market when Lowestoft was a thriving fishing town. I spent my adult working life in architecture designing building throughout the UK, including oil platforms and wind farms. Now in my retirement I continue my childhood dream of becoming a fulltime artist / illustrator, where I use a mix of my imagination, love of the sea and my experience in architecture to produce my art.

Venue: Coble Cottage, High Street
