Scarborough's summer Seafest cancelled amid coronavirus uncertainty

Scarborough’s annual maritime weekend celebration, Seafest, has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus related restrictions.

It was due to be held for the 22nd time between July 17 and 19.

Organisers say they have been unable to progress with planning for this year’s event due to the uncertainty surrounding future government announcements on mass gatherings.

The team is focussing on next year's event, which will take place July 2021.
