Scarborough Open Air Theatre Tickets - Scarborough Open Air Theatre Events
The Scarborough Open Air Theatre is a magical live music venue
The musical smorgasbord that you'll find at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre can be judged by its long pedigree of showcasing some of the biggest pop, rock and indie artists in the UK and from all around the world. It's a wonderfully rural venue, an amphitheatre built into a forest clearing, and it has always been an absolute pleasure to watch live music in this setting. Its steeply banked amphitheatre affords excellent views of the stage, and the surrounding trees contain the sound magnificently, so every note comes across with crystalline clarity.

Come and watch the biggest pop stars on the planet
The Scarborough Open Air Theatre has always offered pop fans the rare opportunity to watch immensely popular bands and solo artists in natural surroundings that get them far closer to the acts than they would be in the large stadiums where this calibre of artist normally performs. Witness past appearances by true pop superstars like the ever so smooth Lionel Richie and Ireland's boy band phenomenon, Westlife. Even though this is an outdoor venue, there are permanent catering facilities on hand, with hot and cold food and all manner of beverages available for music fans to refresh themselves with in-between acts. It's all come a long way since the theatre opened by the Lord Mayor of London in 1932. The first production was the light romantic opera, Merrie England, to roughly 5,000 spectators. The modern amphitheatre can take around 8,000 people, enough to create a vibe that far exceeds its relatively small size.

From Britpop to indie rock and mainstream pop
Scarborough Open Air Theatre also became one of the centres of live Britpop in the 1990s, and bands from that era have continued to return to play at the venue ever since. Some of them have made appearances on reunion tours, while others never stopped playing live in the first place. Over the years, Britpop fans have watched plenty of the most seminal artists of the scene, like Supergrass. In the next decade it was the turn of indie rock, which has been more than amply represented here by the likes of Snow Patrol. Dance and pop music have had their fair share too, with artists like Boyzone, Olly Murs and Jessie J making appearances here at one time or another. So there's always been plenty of variety on offer here, as you'll discover when you look for Scarborough Open Air Theatre tickets on StubHub.
