September by the sea
For decades, Scarborough was known as ‘the tonic holiday’ destination – you can be the gin!
Throw yourself into our thriving local cultural scene with this.
Always Been Here at Scarborough Art Gallery
Always Been Here pieces together the voices and artefacts of Scarborough’s queer heritage at Scarborough Art Gallery this Autumn. Through a process of collaborative engagement with local queer people, the exhibition brings together unique perspectives on works from the Scarborough Museums and Galleries permanent collection, presenting them alongside objects of personal significance to the local queer community for the first time.
We at LOCL Properties believe that every month is Pride month, but Scarborough’s very own Pride event on the 30th of September at Scarborough Spa is the ideal opportunity to don some sequins and demonstrate our allyship! Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will recognise this year’s fabulous headliner, Cheryl Hole! Entry is free; however, the timings are still yet to be announced so keep your eyes peeled for announcements on the Scarborough Spa website: https://www.scarboroughspa.co.uk/whats-on/scarborough-pride
Sir Alan Ayckbourn at The Stephen Joseph Theatre
It could be said that we sometimes take it for granted that Britain’s greatest living playwright lives (and writes) right here in Scarborough. Theatre goers flock to the SJT every year for the ‘Ayckbourn pilgrimage’ to catch his latest play. Constant Companions will be Ayckbourn’s 89th play, but in addition to this world premiere, there will be a one-off rehearsed reading of a lost pandemic era play The Truth Will Out on the 17th of September. Book ASAP to avoid missing out: www.sjt.uk.com/events
Young Scarborough Artists at Mandy Apple
The Mandy Apple Collective have launched a gallery/arts hub in town. Having opened with ‘Gone Feral’, an exhibition of works by craftivist Imo Sophia, their latest offering Young Scarborough Artists – a showcase of budding local creatives is free to view throughout September. Don’t forget to have a look around their shop, they sell artworks and crafted creations to take home. A souvenir with a personal touch.
