Today is the start of Scarborough's 133rd Summer Festival of Cricket.

North Marine Road is the venue for Yorkshire's four-day County Championship match against Surrey.

It's the first of two county matches which will be played at the ground this season.

Vice-President of Scarborough Cricket Club, Bill Mustoe, said:

"30 to 40,000 people will come to the festival, we have the largest crowds in the country for Championship cricket and that's been true for a couple of decades or more.

People arrive by car, they stay in hotels, they eat in restaurants - we think it's worth over £$ million to the local economy".

Bill's been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..
