Go here for details of past event

Scarborough RNLI's annual memorial service takes place at St Mary's Church on Sunday 8 December.
The service marks the 65th anniversary of one of the worst disasters in the lifeboat's history.
Three crew died when the ECJR lifeboat overturned in the south bay in a terrible storm on 8 December 1954.
In atrocious conditions, with enormous waves and a howling gale, the lifeboat had been at sea all afternoon, escorting fishing boats back to the harbour.
With its rescue work complete, the ECJR was engulfed by waves and capsized close to the harbour mouth.
The deaths of coxswain Jack Sheader, second coxswain John Cammish and signalman Francis Bayes devastated their families and numbed the whole town with shock and grief.
Every year since then, the anniversary of the tragedy has been commemorated by a church service remembering those three in particular but also other lifeboat crew who have perished at sea. They include Frank Dalton, who died in a horrific accident in tumultuous seas on 9 December 1951.
The service is due to begin at 6.30pm.

Rememberance Sunday service

Go here for details of past event

The Remembrance Sunday service at Scarborough lifeboathouse will be conducted by Rev Graham Morgan and Rev Pam Jennings on 10 November.
It will follow a Queen Street Central Hall service, which will begin at 9.30am. This will feature the blessing of standards and wreaths, a drumhead ceremony and poppies falling during the silence period.
Veterans, standard bearers, wreath-carriers, members of the lifeboat crew and coastguard team, army, air and sea cadets will then parade down to the harbour for the lifeboathouse service, beginning at 10.30am. High tide will be at 3pm so people should be able to stand on the beach.
Colin Woodhead, who chairs Scarborough RNLI, will make a reading. Music will be played by organist Francis Appleby.
The wreaths will be laid out at the lifeboathouse and taken up to the Oliver's Mount war memorial later. They used to be laid on the sea from a small Sub-Aqua Club vessel, the Richard S. Biodegradable poppies are now laid on the sea, near the harbour entrance, instead.
Both services are organised by Tom Fox.
* The photos are from last year's Remembrance Sunday service at the lifeboathouse.
