Newly Formed Bridlington Group: D.O.T !

A New Group has Formed Recently in Bridlington, called Destination Old Town (D.O.T for short)! The Group consists of Small Business Owners who Live in Old Town, who celebrate the Arts, Culture and Heritage of Bridlington Old Town.

D.O.T have decided to light up Old Town throughout December, promoting the events that will be happening throughout the month, hoping it will create a thriving community in appreciation of the uniqueness in Old Town.

The Events Taking Place Throughout December:

Other musicians and buskers will be joining in to liven up the evening.

Friday 8th December – FOOD is the theme for this evening. Pubs and Restaurants will be offering their “festive feasting” etc.  Please feel free to come up the High Street, Market Place and the Old Town in general in costume.  There is no specific theme just a period costume from Georgian, Victorian or Steam Punk to provide a further level to the evenings entertainment.  There will also be a mini pantomime on throughout the evening, outside the Opticians on the corner in the Queens at 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm.
