Went to see a show

Over the last few weeks I've been to the Pavilion for several events. Great little theatre and events venue. Great coffee and great view. Lots of seating with sea views.

As always the Pavilion played host to the Bizarre Bazaar in the day and the bands in the evening. Everything always appears to be very, very well organised here. The venue very quickly transforms from day time buying to night time revelling almost seamlessly and makes each visit enjoyable

Attended a Whitby Live 60's weekend, brilliant great entertainment and good choice of food and drinks in the Pavillion including bar. There is also a cinema and theatre although we did not have time to enjoy those. Great beach and attractions very good indeed. Suitable for all.

As a music venue this place is great, a little dated, yes, but the drinks are reasonably priced and they're doing hotdogs/burgers/pizza etc all night long Set over two floors, there's a huge upstairs dance floor and the same again downstairs easily holding a couple of thousand partygoers. Extra portable bar downstairs is a welcome touch This isn't a nightclub... More

We have just returned home from a short break in Whitby. We were there for the Country Music Festival held in the Pavilion. It was a great festival and I felt the venue was well suited to hosting it. The concert room was large and well layed out. The bar was well run and generally well staffed. For me the... More

We visit here every Tuesday to dance to the sounds of Ray Kirk. I've known and worked with Ray for many years, so know what to expect of his music. Brilliant. He's a great musician and a great sound to dance to. The staff at the Pavilion are great, like one big happy family. Over the past couple of years... More
