Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves at Bridlington is the brainchild of Paul Garbutt, who had previously produced classic motorcycle social gatherings under his event name BACKFIRE Feel the Noise... Paul inspired by the world famous (TROG) "The Race of Gentleman" which has been held annually since 2012 on the Wildwoods beach in New Jersey USA, contacted Joe the "Staging Boss" which is the person who brings the vehicles to the start line, to help aid the formula which Paul wished to create for Race the Waves in Bridlington. Paul had many calls with Joe who tragically passed away in 2019 but will…

Top Show Picks for the Yorkshire Coast

Top Show Picks for the Yorkshire Coast

One of the huge advantages for us living on the Yorkshire Coast is the amazing variety of shows and events that we can take advantage of. Although we live in small towns - which anywhere else in the country would be lucky to even have a decent theatre - we can take our pick of great venues. Probably many of us take this variety of entertainment for granted - ok so its mainly just in the summer months but I really do think we have the best of both worlds. We have all the advantages of a small town -…

Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

It is often said that the Greeks pretty much invented everything. Whether they actually invented storytelling or not I don’t know. But one thing you cannot deny is the fact they really knew how to tell a tale. They threw everything into it. Love, loss, battles, heroes, heroines, monsters, gods and adventures galore. One of my favourite films as a kid was Jason & the Argonauts (an ancient Greek tale). The skeleton battle was ground-breaking for its time, though it looks positively cartoon-like next to today’s CGI techniques. It’s still a great film, fundamentally because it’s a great story.  https://youtu.be/C-ZQGRM7GW0…
