Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

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

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!

Sue Nichol

Sue Nichol is a regular visitor to Staithes, a place she has loved since childhood. Although She now lives in Sheffield, Sue’s upbringing on the North East coast has left an indelible imprint on her and her work. Her paintings bring to life the sea in all weathers: from tranquil views from the cliff-tops to wild angry waves battering the breakwaters. I exhibit in Staithes Gallery and have run painting workshops in Staithes and elsewhere. My work has been exhibited in many galleries and shows around the UK. I am a member of the prestigious Peak District Artisans.
