Been here a few times and love it. The view, wherever you are seated, is superb and the setting is lovely. Have always been lucky in that it has never rained when i have been there but if it did you would get very wet. Although I do understand they issue plastic macs.

Been to several of the major events here including the opening by the Queen!, Football World Cup on big screen, N Dubz, Olly Murs, JLS and now looking forward to the huge acts booked for this summer. Every time I have been to the OAT the atmosphere has been incredible and the organisation superb. A unique venue that Scarborough should be very proud of and I hope it continues to be a success in the future.

Been to several concerts at the Theatre. An awful lot of thought went into the designing of the seating, we've been in various areas & all had a great view. The sound is brilliant. Love it
