Organiser Charlotte Gray says it's all about talent.

Bridlington Diverse Festival

Charlotte says..

"Over the first three festivals we have attracted performers and audience members from across the region. The aim of the festival has always been to create a fun, safe and inspiring event where people of all abilities can come together and showcase their talents. We want the event to grow each year and to bring people together from all communities across the region to support one another and make new and lasting friendships.

We wanted to host the festival in Bridlington to showcase what the Yorkshire Coast has to offer and encourage people to visit a new area and see it in a positive light.  With Hull  having been the City of Culture, it feels very fitting to have a sustainable event within the region."

The event, run by volunteers, will consist of performances from a variety of groups (1.30pm-4pm), activities, including soft play and storytelling (by International Storyteller Adrian Spendlow), karaoke, a café and a disco to end the event.

There are a wide variety of groups performing this year including the Ability Group from the Northern Ballet, Route 66 Skiffle Band from Hull and the Bridlington Den Inclusive Youth Theatre.

The event is open to everyone, regardless of ability and is very family friendly.

Tickets are £3 each for the day and you can come and go as you wish. Tickets can be bought in advance from the Spa Box Office or on the day at the event.
