Acoustic Gathering

Scarborough's popular Acoustic Gathering is supported by Create.

With plenty of room for families, lots of space to relax and disabled access, everybody is welcome at Scarborough’s very own boutique acoustic festival which is shaping up up to be the must attend event of the year.

Taking place every September in Scarborough's Peasholm Park, Acoustic Gathering has over 20 live acoustic acts.

Acoustic Gathering aims to provide a free, annual, one day purely acoustic festival, that gives the opportunity for local singer/songwriters to perform in front of up to 2000 people, sharing the billing with national established artistes, allowing them to garner experience & forge important networking links for the future.

The festival promotes local talent, supplying a series of workshops/training sessions for the youth of the town and provides a quality event, which is accessible to all members of the public.

Set on the lake bandstand in Peasholm Park, genres have included in the past, folk, traditional, asian, opera, pop, jazz, blues.

Create is happy to sponsor this annual event.
