Scarborough Open Air Theatre is the only venue of its kind in Europe, and it you catch a performance on a sunny day it’s an experience you’ll never forget. With a fully open air design and the stage set behind a moat, this concert venue hosts a whole range of live productions and welcomes some of the biggest acts in the entertainment industry every year.
The theatre was re-launched in 2010, and thanks to its oversized stage on the lake it remains one of the most unique entertainment venues on the circuit. The stage has already hosted some of the biggest names in the music industry since the theatre’s overhaul, and the amphitheatre design of the seating means the sound quality is incredible. There are sometimes free productions held during afternoons, and it’s well worth checking what’s on at the Scarborough OAT before arriving.
The theatre makes for a lovely way to while away a warm evening in the summer as it’s completely open air, but bear this in mind if you visit out of season as you’ll need to wrap up to enjoy the experience!
