The sun is once again shining on Seaham, and our hotel (and hometown) have plenty of plans in place for a sensational summer. From cinema nights to food festivals, here’s what you can expect this August.
Outdoor cinema night | Forrest Gump
On 3rd August, we’ll have the second instalment in our cinema night series and will be screening the feel-good family favourite, Forrest Gump, on the terrace. Expect epic cinema snacks and plenty of fizz, laughter and tears.
Tickets: £25 per person (includes a posh dog, popcorn and a glass of fizz)
Seaham Food Festival
The first weekend in August will see foodie fanatics gather by the sea for Seaham’s annual Food Festival. This year’s event will have guest appearances from the likes of John Whaite, Rosemary Shrager, and Bake Off’s Karen Wright, as well as street food stalls, live music, and activities for the little ones.
Live music | Wayne on Sax
He joined us for a live performance in our gardens back in July, and on Sunday 22nd August, Wayne on Sax will once again be wowing crowds on the terrace from 2pm-5pm. We’ll be serving champagne and seafood from our popup van, Milbanke & Co., as well as afternoon tea in the grounds and under the pergola.
Sunset Sessions | DJ Matt Bailey
Throughout the month, we’ll be continuing our sunset sessions with Matt Bailey. From 5pm-8pm every Wednesday evening, he’ll be providing the soundtrack for sundowners on the terrace. Think crisp, ice-cold rosé, fresh seafood from our pop-up van, Milkbanke & Co., and chilled Café del Mar vibes.
