Twenty-two people, including children, were killed and dozens injured during the attack at the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande.

A spokesman for Cuffe and Taylor, concert promoters at Scarborough Open Air Theatre, said: “Our thoughts are with those who lost their lives, those who were injured and all their family and friends following the devastating attack in Manchester, as well as the emergency services working tirelessly to keep us safe in all that we do.

“For the next 48 hours our social media activity will remain silent as a mark of respect.

“The shows this week at Scarborough Open Air Theatre will go ahead as planned, and we are continually liaising with our venue security and local police to ensure the safety of our customers. We are certain we will not be defeated by such cowardice.”
