Sponsored by Booker Wholesale, the event was attended by more than 100 guests, including the former Mayor of Scarborough Cllr Martin Smith and the Deputy Mayor of Bridlington Cllr Mike Heslop-Mullens. Speaking at the dance, President of the town’s Hospitality Association Shirley Smith heralded 2018 as a great year for the hospitality trade in Scarborough. This was due to a combination of factors including the fantastic weather, a fall in the value of the pound against most other currencies, and the impressive number of artists of international standing appearing at the Open Air Theatre.
