WHITBY is to get its own celebration of all things nautical.

Whitby Sea Festival will be the town’s celebration of the sea and music in a brand new annual event to be held from July 20 to 22.

Richard Grainger, musician and writer, will head the team which will work with local businesses, museums and schools to produce something that everyone can be part of.
