The East Coast Churches and Community Music Festival
The East Coast Churches and Community Festival was set up to:
- Promote the rich East Coast Christian Heritage within the Local Community
- Provide a dimension for lifestyle improvement and personal development
- Increase opportunities for and develop the talents of Young People
- Encourage community participation
- Strengthen cultural links, past present and future
- Give the East Coast community an event to be proud of and own
- Promote tourism and the local economy.
The festival is organised to involve as many as possible of the East Coast community groups, schools and amateur musicians of all ages. The festival has attracted over 700 participants of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and religious faiths for each of the past two years. Where possible we use local church premises, given to us free of charge, for rehearsals and concerts, with performances at the Bridlington Spa Theatre.
