A rare opportunity to view unique archive footage of Scarborough will be on offer during Coastival.

By complete contrast, film lovers with a taste for sci-fi will enjoy seeing two 1950s classics during the 10th anniversary festival.

An exciting programme of music, theatre, comedy, art and entertainment is on offer at Coastival from 22nd to 24th February.
