Beryl Whipp, dressed as Lord Nelson, was welcoming people to the West Pier on Saturday and Sunday, where top chefs were giving demonstrations and stall holders set up shop.

She said: “It’s been going as well as we could have hoped considering the weather. It doesn’t seem to have stopped people turning out.

“The cooking seems to have been particularly popular and people have been enjoying the stalls.

“I’ve just been welcoming people, answering their questions and talking to them about Lord Nelson.

“Some of the kids have been calling me a pirate but I do correct them!”

The festival is backed financially by Scarborough Council and Welcome to Yorkshire.

After the daytime events, music went on well into the evening at the West Pier and other venues across the town.

Cllr Janet Jefferson, who was enjoying the festivities on Saturday afternoon, said: “It’s going very well. There’s a good community atmosphere.
