On Friday night I had a drive up to Staithes to see the opening of The Staithes Arts And Heritage Weekend.

It was a pleasure to be in the village (as always), and to see all the little cottages lit up and people welcoming you inside to view their art work, was something really very special.

The village was buzzing, the pubs were busy and all the little bistros and food oulets were packed.

The village was lit with a lightshow by Mick Stephenson. Dotted around the village were also many willow and wire sculptures by local artist Emma Stothard

the festival runs until Sunday evening, so if you get chance why not pop down and take a look around.
