Whitby Pavilion to offer more events

A NEW era began at Whitby Pavilion on Tuesday as, for the first time in its 130-year history, the entertainment venue came under the stewardship of a private company.


Sheffield International Venues (SIV), which welcomes more than 4.5 million people to its arenas annually, has entered into a 10-year partnership with Scarborough Borough Council which will see it manage and redevelop the Pavilion complex.

In the first year of the partnership, SIV and the council have pledged to invest more than £700,000 in refurbishment of the Pavilion and Scarborough Spa and borough councillor David Chance said he is ecstatic that the building’s future has been safeguarded
