It is always lovely to have our own guests at TS and exploring places to visit in Scarborough with them. Today we visited the Sea Life Centre and we were all very impressed. Here are some of the stunning sights we saw.
We then visited the Art Gallery in Scarborough and were quite amazed at what we found there. Wonderful paintings depicting Scarborough in years gone by – some of which were donated by Tom Laughton who was brought up in Scarborough with his family of hoteliers. His brother Charles went off to become one of the most famous actors in Hollywood in the 1930`s. He played Quasimodo in the Hunchback of Notradame, and Captain Bligh to name but two exceptional films. A play portraying Charles`s life is currently on at the Stephen Joseph Theatre at the moment. We would urge people to go and see it as Vincent Franklin who plays Charles is excellent as are the other members of the small cast.
We also visited the Woodend Creative Workspace in the Crescent in Scarborough where we were delighted to find an exhibition of Joan Miro's, the Spanish surrealist, lithographic work which was being shown. Joan Miro was born in 1893 and died at the age of 90 in 1983. He was apparently a friend of Picasso! These works are on sale for large sums of money. We were very impressed with the workspace and will certainly be keeping an eye on what is going on there.
