Moving North: CoastalA rare opportunity to experience a remarkable mix of archive footage all about the places – and people – we know so well, as the Yorkshire Film Archive takes you on a journey through time revealing the rich film heritage of our Yorkshire coastline, with Scarborough centre stage.

Using amateur and home movies, travelogues and regional TV productions, our curators have been working in partnership with the BFI’s Britain on Film project to preserve and digitise more of our Yorkshire film heritage collections to bring audiences a new programme of screenings and events, Moving North: Coastal, in which we’ll reveal the stories of our coastal communities, from the familiar fish and chips to the less known industry of piano making at Waddington’s factory in the 1930s. First World War shelling to fun and family frolics on the beach, and a packed Spa as a legion of fans say a fond farewell to Scarborough favourite Max Jaffa.

With the castle and harbour a familiar backdrop, you’re bound to recognise familiar faces and places, and who knows, perhaps you might even spot family or friends fleetingly captured on film, and now revealed once more as Moving North: Coastal comes to Scarborough.
