Future of Music – Oliver's Mount Festival 2012

The Future of Music Festival at Oliver’s Mount is hoping to be a laid back, affordable, family friendly music festival

It will begin from the 16th June 2012 and will run over 2 days, from 12 noon to midnight on the Saturday and 11am to 8pm on the Sunday.  There will on-site camping if you wish, but we recommend staying at the Crown Spa Hotel and enjoying a relaxing night after the days events.  The acts will consist of the local bands and artists, many from the local region.  This music festival is what fans have been waiting for, hopefully if it proves popular it will expand to become even more sucessful next year.

Music will consist of acoustic, blues, rock, pop and folk music. While enjoying the music you can enjoy the surrounded areas of the countryside as well as breathtaking views over Scarborough.

Tickets are £20 for the weekend if bought in advance or £25 on the gate.

Scarborough Shrove Tuesday traditions

Scarborough has had a long running tradtion on Shrove Tuesday which has been running at least since 1903. It has been thought that local fisherman who were getting rid of the ropes and nets not fit for fishing to children who would then use the ropes to skip.

Since at least 1853 a person has run a bell at noon on Shrove Tuesday, which is though to signal to people they should begin pancake making when the tradition began. Nowadays it is run to tell people to start skipping.  The area used for skipping is closed (foreshore) for traffic for the event these days.
