The third annual Staithes Festival of Art and Heritage took place on the 13th and 14th September 2014. The weather was kind and a great crowd of art lovers and those looking for a terrific day out flocked to the village.
Visitors bought a record amount of art, and enjoyed exhibitions by 136 artists, buskers, concerts, pop-up cafes, and outdoor (and for the first time indoor) cinema, as well as Staithes's year-round pubs, shops, and cafes.
Launched at the festival, but available all the time, is the Staithes Art Illusion Trail.
Filmed and Edited by Christian Cargill for the Staithes Festival Committee.
The festival is back in 2015 on 12th and 13th September. For more information see http://www.staithesfestival.com
