A spectacular celebration to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in Scarborough will be dedicated to Honorary Freeman Max Payne.

The well-known photographer who raised more than £250,000 for good causes, receiving an MBE for his charitable work, passed away in April at the age of 77.

Before his death, Max was among the first to donate money towards the cost of staging a spectacular jubilee celebration at Scarborough Castle.

The display will see powerful lighting projected on to the walls of the castle, turning it into a stunning beacon visible from many parts of Scarborough and beyond. Images of Her Majesty The Queen will also be beamed on to the south facing walls of the castle as part of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons celebration this Monday, 4 June.

The Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough, Cllr Helen Mallory, said: “Max Payne was an incredible human being, a man of enormous integrity, generosity and spirit.”

The council says the best vantage point to view the castle display will be on the South Bay beach. It will begin at 10.15pm.
