Coastival Fringe Brings Top Comedians to Scarborough


Popular comedian and impressionist Rory Bremner is coming to Scarborough to star in a January curtain-raiser for the Coastival arts event, sponsored by Wold Top Brewery.

Rory, alongside jazz singer and comedian Ian Shaw, will take to the stage at Scarborough’s Spa Theatre on Tuesday January 26th at 7.30pm.

“Coastival Presents Rory Bremner and Ian Shaw” will be a teaser ahead of Coastival, which will run from 12th to 14th February.

Organisers promise “exclusive close-up entertainment featuring these two leading lights takes in pithy, up-to- the-minute inner and outer dialogues, political and otherwise, from the peerless Bremner and similar observations at the keyboard from Shaw.”

Coastival’s organisers, Scarborough-based arts development agency Create, are delighted to welcome the duo to Scarborough.

Director Wendy Holroyd said: “Rory Bremner and Ian Shaw will make a fantastic teaser ahead of Coastival and we are delighted they can join us in January.

“It promises to be a great night to get people in the mood for the full festival in February.”

Tickets for Rory Bremner and Ian Shaw are on sale now via Scarborough Spa. The full exciting programme for Coastival 2016 has just been unveiled.

More than 100 events, activities and installations, most of them free, are planned. It will feature a spectacular parade, followed by a busy weekend of music, theatre, fine art, installations and activities for children and young people.

Copies of the programme are available from Woodend, Scarborough Spa, The Stephen Joseph Theatre and other outlets.
