The annual Staithes RNLI Lifeboat Weekend takes place most years in August. The event is becoming ever more popular and perhaps one of the very best lifeboat weekends in the whole of the UK.
The full village community gets involved and the event brings thousands of people into the area from miles around.
Staithes is usually “Buzzing” right across the lifeboat weekend and The Saturday evening is usually very exciting with an almost carnival like atmospher, with street performers, bands, dancers and the likes performing in the village.
During the day, both Whitby and Staithes lifeboats take part in displays around the local bay and just outside the local harbour.
Staithes is set in a beautiful harbour below the cliffs of the wonderful North Yorkshire Coast. The national Amphitheatre makes for an awesome weekend which everyone attending seems to really enjoy.
