The 10-piece was due to take up residence today - Thursday June 4 - for a series of morning and evening concerts including gala nights each Wednesday until September.

The video shows a series of pictures of the orchestra to Theatreland by Jack Strachey.

Dominic Stokes, Head of SIVLive said: “ As I am sure our audience will understand due to the unprecedented challenges and uncertainty the world is currently facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is very difficult for us to ascertain when the Scarborough Spa Orchestra 2020 season will begin and as such quite rightly cannot commit to any date."

The Scarborough Spa Orchestra has been in existence since 1912 and has played a major part of the summer programme since then. It most famously played under the directorship of the late Max Jaffa.
