Whitby Folk Week 2014
Various Venues, Whitby

This Festival has not been reviewed yet Be the first to write one!

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. Whitby Folk Week takes place in numerous venues in and around the town.

Altogether, Whitby Folk Week is a celebration of the traditional music, dance and song of the British Isles has taken on the trappings of a tradition in its own right.

There's over 600 events covering workshops, concerts, singarounds, dance, sessions, street entertainment and the extensive ‘fringe’ events that blossom spontaneously.

Whitby is a picturesque seaport town that has a greater concentration of visitor experiences per square mile than in many of the better-known tourist destinations. From the Jet workshop to the Dracula Experience via Captain Cook’s cottage and the ruined Abbey dominating the cliff tops above the town, there is culture and tradition in abundance. Folk week could not have a better setting.

There are many excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, real-ale pubs, and they say that it has the best fish and chips in the northern hemisphere!
