Folk Week

Whitby Folk Festival 22nd – 28th Aug 2015.

One of the largest folk events in the u.k.

Seven days of dancing in the streets, music and singing in the pubs, concerts and dances until late into the night, and a whole lot more. Seven days of meeting old friends and making new ones.

This long-standing celebration of the traditional music, dance and song of the British Isles has taken on the trappings of a tradition in its own right. With over 600 events covering workshops, concerts, singarounds, dance, sessions, street entertainment and the extensive ‘fringe’ events that blossom spontaneously. Folk Week is a festival that no lover of real music should miss.

Not into folk music?? no need to worry the atmosphere of the town and the friendliness of the locals and visitors alike will make for a fantastic week .
