Scarborough Studios CIO which runs the OPO have just taken on more empty properties in Scarborough to grow into thriving artspaces.
As well as the @oldparcelsofficeartspace, and the 2 gallery spaces on Newborough, Gallery 33 and No 44 – now the home of the @mandyapplecollective, we have just taken 49 Newborough, the disused Shakespeare pub opposite the market hall, and the empty newsagents.

The new properties will be used for artist studios and artist lead exhibition spaces.

Thanks to a Herculean effort by Andrew Aldis and a team of volunteers the Shakespeare opened its doors on Saturday 15th June as part of The Scarborough Fair with exhibitions by @lydiamayhann and Wandering Photography
