Bridlington Spa is a theatre, ballroom, art gallery and conference centre located on the south bay of Bridlington. Originally built in 1896, the building has undergone four rebuilds/refurbishments over the years; the latest being a £20M refurbishment between 2006 and 2008.

The venue features a huge Art Deco Ballroom, Edwardian proscenium-arched theatre with flytower, art gallery displaying local artists' work and a cafe benefiting from panoramic views across the beach and sea. You can see as far as Withernsea on a clear day.

The venue is home to touring musicals on the Yorkshire Coast, is known for producing it's own theatre and repertory season and is often used by top names in the music industry to launch arena tours.

The venue's programme features in excess of 400 entertainment shows each year as well as more than 350 business events.

Bridlington Spa is open every day of the year with the exception of Christmas Day.

Bridlington Spa must have the most diverse and eclectic mix of entertainment and events of any seaside venue in Britain. It shines as a beacon of light and a stunning example of how... More

Hi Jack Thanks for your review. I'm not sure when you visited Bridlington Spa but we opened our redesigned and remodeled Café Bar on March 24th. It is a head and shoulders improvement over its predecessor; which suffered from insufficient seating in the window amongst other things. We now sport 60 seats at 15 tables in the window area, a...
