On December 16th 1914, German warships fired hundreds of shells on Scarborough, Whitby and Hartlepool; an offensive which became known as 'The Bombardment'. Hundreds died, many were injured, and buildings and homes were destroyed. This attack caused great public outcry and 'Remember Scarborough' became the slogan for an impassioned recruitment drive.
Now thanks to funding from the Arts Council England we are leading a project to commemorate this anniversary, all the details are here.
