Staithes Art Festival 2014

Somehow I’ve got the urge to up sticks and settle down in a little seaside cottage…could it be the after effects of a lovely day in Staithes?


The annual art festival took place this weekend, with 80 pop up galleries featuring over 100 artists. Then there’s the buskers, pop up cafés and the beach, littered with fossils! We strolled around in (almost) sunshine, along Ginnels strewn with bunting, finding artists in all media, happy to talk about their work, and life in general!


The streets were thronged and smelt temptingly of fresh cooked seafood, cakes and coffee. One of the pop up cafés even specialises in gluten free cakes!



There were things to do and lots of talks and demo’s – a perfect arty weekend:) it’ll definitely be on the calendar for next year!
