Big Night Out at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre

A ‘Big Night Out’ featuring a galaxy of stars from The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice is being brought to Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre this summer.

The line-up includes Amelia Lily and The Risk from The X Factor 2011; Loveable Rogues, The Mend and Scarborough-born Dalek impersonator Martyn Crofts from this year’s Britain’s Got Talent Contest; and Jaz Ellington and Max Milner from The Voice UK 2012.

The show on Saturday 18th August will also feature one of the most recognisable voiceover artists in the UK – Peter Dickson who is the voice of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.

‘Big Night Out’ tickets go on sale at 9am this Saturday (30 June) at a special early bird reduced rate of £20 tickets bought in July, rising to the full price of £24 in August, with 2,500 tickets for the best seats available locally in Scarborough.

Under-14s who want to buy tickets from the Escape to the Sands offices, must be accompanied by an adult.

Janet Deacon, Area Director for Welcome to Yorkshire which is supporting the Open Air Theatre, said: “it’s fantastic to see some of the most recognisable television talent contestants in the country brought together for his one-off show – we think this caliabre contempory modern acts will appeal to a huge varitey of people, including families who just a few months ago may have sat together to watch these acts on TV.

David Archer, Strategic Director for Scarborough Borough Council, added: “We have been working extremely hard to put on quality acts at the Open Air Theatre this summer which will appeal to a wide audience.

“It was amazing to have an icon like Dionne Warwick perform in the theatre; John Barrowman was a great success; there’ll be a full house for Olly Murs on 15 July; Russell Watson on 4 August is going to be an incredible show; and we’re closing the season on 25 August with JLS who are possibly the biggest boyband in the world right now.

“It’s great we have been able to add even more talented acts to this summer’s line-up from some of the most watched television shows in the last 12 months and who, if past experience is anything to go by, could very well follow in the footsteps of Olly Murs and JLS.”
