We are sorry that Ms Dewhurst was disappointed with the audience attendance at the Coastival choir performance at the art gallery on February 14 (Scarborough News, February 26).
We were delighted with the 387 people who came to the gallery that day. The capacity of our main gallery space (the ‘back room’ of which Ms Dewhurst speaks) is 50 and this therefore represents over seven capacity audiences throughout the day, with performances from six choirs.
We are very grateful to the choirs who gave their time and energy and the audiences who supported them so enthusiastically.
