It was fantastic to see the Big Ideas By The Sea Festival launch in Scarborough last week and hear how so many different businesses and organisations have participated in helping it succeed.

The work undertaken by Kane and John to create a festival with changing restrictions will have presented many challenges, but they were committed to showing what could be achieved.

It has been a pleasure for us to support the team over the last 18 months and see the hard work come to fruition. We are excited to see the impact and coverage the festival receives after it finishes and see what support we can provide for next year, so this becomes a standout event for Scarborough.

Our funders prepare reports within 60 days of activity concluding, and we will share this in the not so distant future.
