North Bay Promenade

Wave Power is a unique support programme using water therapy, behaviour change, coaching and mentoring to enable people referred into the project to build confidence and employability. People will be supported to develop strategies to help them on the pathway to success in both their personal life and career aspirations.

Keen to let everyone know about our new programme, we will be in Scarborough North Bay Promenade on the 17th July 2019 to host an event marking the launch.

The event will be an opportunity to learn more about the programme and revolutionary approach to personal development and will include live surfing demonstrations.

The programme is split into 4 key elements: Water Therapy, Talent Passport, 1:1 mentoring and coaching support and health improvement interventions. Using the natural resource of the North Sea as a form of therapeutic activity, the aim is to provide an inspirational experience that helps promote healthier lifestyles and well-being to people with emotional and physical disabilities and learning disabilities. The overall objectives of Wave Power is to enable participants to raise their life aspirations and support them to identify personal and professional development opportunities including progressing into employment, Apprenticeships or formal education.

Water Therapy involves a six-week course delivered by qualified Wave Power Surfing Instructors supported by Dexter’s Surf School with participants actually spending time in the sea learning new water and land-based skills.

Talent Passport (validated by the Humber LEP Employability Passport) is a bespoke toolkit developed with local employers to help them to understand and take advantage of new employees their unique skills and attributes, matching their talents to local workforce gaps.
Health Interventions will be delivered in conjunction with the University of Hull. These interventions will be focused on long-term conditions such as depression, anxiety and cardiac rehabilitation, educating participants to choose and adopt healthier lifestyle options.

1:1 Mentoring and Coaching will be provided by Lifestyle Coaches throughout the participant journey supporting individuals with tailored information, advice and guidance to work towards achieving their goals and aspirations.

The last remaining professional seaside orchestra continues a seaside tradition that dates back to 1912.

We invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy a performance by some of the most versatile musicians you are ever likely to find.

As always, our morning concerts will present music on the lighter, brighter side with plenty of familiar tunes and jaunty rhythms, balanced by romantic melodies, stirring marches, lilting waltzes – and so much more to entertain you.

All morning concerts are performed within the elegant Suncourt Enclosure with Scarborough's stunning South Bay as the back-drop. If the weather is inclement, don’t worry, we simply move inside!

Our concerts still offer excellent value but if you have never experienced a Scarborough Spa Orchestra we invite you to one of our Sunday morning concerts where you can Pay What You Like! (Recommended Donation £3)

We look forward to meeting our audiences throughout the season, renewing old friendships and making new ones as we aim to introduce more and more people to the wonderful music played by the Legendary Scarborough Spa Orchestra.

There is no better way to spend a relaxing morning in Scarborough!

We hope to see you this Summer.

The Curse of the Smuggler's Run

Scarborough Market Hall
St. Helen's Square
YO11 1EU

Come gather close and hear this tale of Scarborough in the age of sail: 'The Curse of the Smuggler’s Run', a brand new action, adventure musical by John Pattison & Alison Watt.

This summer, witness the Scarborough of 1822 where smuggling is a way of life. When firebrand revenue man George 'Flogger' Ballard arrives in town to put a stop to it, events take a dangerous turn. With the threat of the noose or transportation never far away, will local merchant James Law tolerate Ballard's interference in his other 'free-trading' business? And what of Hetty Pashby, drawn into Law's racketeering from her fishing background? Can she find love and the life she craves? And who among them will find that hoard of buried gold?

Blending historical fact and imaginative storytelling through music, song and adventure, 'The Curse of the Smuggler's Run' celebrates the story of those who smuggled and those whose job it was to stop them. With laughs along the way, this fast-action tale is set in the heart of Scarborough, sharing local legends from the town's colourful past. Join us in Scarborough Market Hall and take a seat in the heart of the Old Town, where the actual events took place nearly 200 years ago!

Performances in Scarborough Market Hall: July 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 16th & 17th at 7pm. £10 Adult | £8 Concession. Pre-book from Deli Delicious, Scarborough Market Hall or online at

Tickets will also be available on the door.
