Teddy Bears’ Picnics Return To Scarborough Spa This Summer

Teddy Bears’ Picnics Scarborough Spa

The Scarborough Spa Orchestra return this summer with their much loved Teddy Bears' Picnic Concerts.

One of last summer’s big successes was the introduction of weekly Teddy Bears' Picnics on Monday mornings throughout the school holidays – so successful that the pattern will be repeated this year from 6th July to 31st August.

As well as providing relaxing, easy-listening music for residents and visitors throughout the summer season, the legendary Scarborough Spa Orchestra is committed to encouraging young people to experience the joy of music.

These are aimed principally at pre-school children and toddlers, but last year adults continued to join the audience in large numbers to enjoy their music with a rather different scene.

Teddy Bears' Picnics are devised and presented by Kathy Seabrook.  The flautist with the Orchestra, Kathy is well known throughout the area and beyond for her outstanding work with young people. Her bubbly enthusiasm soon gets the youngsters completely caught up in the music as they clap along to the rhythms, sing along to the familiar tunes, dance or march around the Spa Sun Court, play musical games, and even take turns in playing the instruments.

The adult audience still hears a Spa Orchestra morning concert, but with the added entertainment of seeing the youngsters learning how to appreciate and involve themselves in the joys of music.

Kathy's total commitment to making music accessible to the very young is inspirational and it's no surprise that the Sun Court was packed out for every Teddy Bears' Picnic last year.  There’s no doubt that the crowds will flock in again this year, young and old, for this unique event.

Tickets for Teddy Bears' Picnics with the Spa Orchestra are priced at £3 per person, with children under six months free. Tickets are available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via
