Olly told the Welcome to Yorkshire local
area office last week: “I can’t wait to get back to Yorkshire and
play in Scarborough – the crowd are always really up for it, it'll
be a brilliant show!”

many tickets to see him have been sold in such a short space of
time. It will be an amazing atmosphere in the Open Air Theatre and
will bring much wider economic benefits to Scarborough in terms of

Scarborough. Our team here can help take away much of the leg work
for visitors and find the most suitable accommodation – people can
