The idea of the Fish. Fillet. Feast! event is to celebrate the fishing heritage of the North York Moors coast with many fun activities. These will include free tasters of freshly caught and barbecued seafood, sea shanties, sketching workshops, and even a fortune-telling salmon!
Ten locations between Saltburn and Ravenscar will be holding the events and include villages, such as Runswick Bay, Sandsend, Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes. Visitors can look forward to the freshest and most succulent fish caught by the local fishermen that day.
From mid-morning onwards chefs at various seafront venues will hold demonstrations and share their valuable tips on how to cook the freshly-caught fish. Visitors will be offered free tastings of mouth-watering barbecued morsels.
Especial and more importantly, affordable fish dishes, will be available at many restaurants along the coast such as Cleveland Corner Bistro in Staithes, the Cliffemount Hotel at Runswick Bay, and Dunsley Hall near Sandsend.
Visitors can look forward to great entertainment, including listening to storytellers sharing fishy stories, interactive performances such as the fortune-telling Salmon of Knowledge, sea shanties and folk music, and opportunities to knit, paint, sketch or print their own fish design. Visitors can also browse the numerous art galleries and studios showcasing the talent of local artists and craftsmen.
This event takes place from 11am to 7pm on 18th June and most of the events will be FREE. The timing of events varies and there are different activities happening in each village.
