In our May 2021 issue...
This month we remember HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in pictures courtesy of RAF Fylingdales.
If ever there was a museum that takes you through a time warp, it’s Glaisdale’s Museum of Victorian Science. For the past 20 years Tony Swift and his remarkable collection of scientific apparatus have enchanted and educated visitors – all in the confines of a 12-foot-square room resembling Frankenstein’s laboratory! If you haven’t visited already we can heartily recommend it.
If that isn’t curious enough, Arncliffe takes on a whole new light in two gothic tales written by Chris Firth, Tammy Naylor’s atmospheric short story ‘Figurehead’ touches the heart of Whitby and the mystery of Sea Bishops reemerges thanks to an exhibit in Whitby Museum.
There’s an ‘opening up’ feeling in the air... Spring and Summer events are rolling onto the agenda – exhibitions, workshops, theatre and festivals. Some are even ‘in person’ – Covid rules permitting of course.
Enjoy the beautiful month of May,

Thankfully, there are Video Call platforms out there which are very simple to install, and intuitive to use. This article and the step-by-step guide will help you to get started. [ Read more ]
