Cottage owners - we need your support! Rising cottage fees are in danger of pricing artists out. If you own a cottage in Staithes which you can make affordable for artists to show their work, tell us and we'll mention it here -  email 

We'd consider that a thumbs up for the festival, and a contribution to the community. Otherwise we'll end up all visitors and no artists!
