Take a look: 18 top festivals on the Yorkshire coast this year

From its nightmares and nature to its fish and ships, the Yorkshire Coast is preparing to launch its biggest and best ever year of festivals, combining megastars and home-grown heroes.

Stand-out events include a new festival in Whitby inspired by the storytellers past and present who have fallen under the town’s spell, and Scarborough hosting the national Armed Forces Day event for the first time.
