Esk Valley Entertainments

As well as the beautiful scenery there is also much to entertain the resident and visitor alike. The Spa Theatre in Whitby has a full programme of varied entertainment, during the summer the Esk Valley Theatre in Glaisdale puts on professional productions for residents and visitors alike.

For folk music lovers there is the Festival on the moor held at various venues all over the moors, and the Whitby Folk Week usually held in August in various venues all over Whitby. There are 60's, 50's soul and country weekends with genuine artists usually taking place at the Spa Theatre. Also there are two Goth weekends per year which attract many Goths and appropriate entertainment from all over the country.

For those interested in country living there are village and agricultural shows in the summer and early Autumn. The dates of up and coming shows are available on the country shows page. The equivalent for the town of Whitby is the Whitby Regatta. The Whitby Regatta is a celebration of seafaring, (Including yachting and rowing), and many other displays. Many villages have football and cricket teams and there are healthy leagues being played in the appropriate seasons. There is also a quoits league which plays out on village greens in several villages.
