The streets of Scarborough are filled with stories. Memories of those who have gone before us and promises of things yet to come. When the shutters go down at the end of the working day, the Spirit of Scarborough awakes and brings these stories to life.

Travel the streets, guided by the people who know them best, and experience a side of Scarborough that will only show itself for three special performances in July.

This unique performance takes place in unusual indoor and outdoor locations in Scarborough town centre and is written and performed by the people of our town, directed by professional artist Rebecca Denniff.

Please meet at the SJT Box Office for the start of the performance.

This is a pilot performance which we are sharing with audiences for the first time, come and give us your feedback.

Age guidance: 14+
