Do you know when a provisional/working programme is likely to appear on the website?

I'm in Isère at the weekend but hope to pedal up for the Tuesday - though I'll miss t' Regatta ;)

They never seem to publish a programme - extra money is made selling that.  An 'app' was available, but I bought it last year and was very disappointed.  Tiny, tiny script on a field of blank space and no functionality above reading the paper version. Had it even been a PDF ... I could at least have mag'd it up! No updates for late arranged events either so it got  -ve reviews chez moi.

Flat session?

Someone else will have to organize the flat session, we couldn't find any affordable accommodation this year.

Their attitude to the programme is nuts.  Not only do they put people off by making no details of the current year available, they don't make previous years' programmes available either - if you could see that you'd know what kind of an event it was.  (If that had been done, we'd have gone ten years sooner than we eventually did; not knowing anyone who'd been and living 200 miles away, we had no idea if it was going to be any good).  They seem to have decided they don't want any new customers and instead will just screw every penny out of people who've been going for years.

 I agree completely, Saltburn Folk Festival 11th-13th August http://www.cuttywrenfolkclub.talktalk.net/SaltburnFF/index.htm , not far up the coast from Whitby manages to get it's programme on line and updated/revised regularly so you can see where, when and who will be performing and plan accordingly.
 As soon as the Whitby programmes are on sale I'll get one and post a potted list of melodeon friendly events  :||:

The Whitby organisers haven't yet informed me of what workshops they want me to teach. I expect that will be a good few weeks down the line...

I've already badgered them about what they want me to do. Details are sketchy, but it seems as though I'll be running two Well Known Tunes at a Steady Pace structured sessions and a workshop on Tunes from the Yorkshire Dales.

I'll be there both with Phoenix and with Dearman, Gammon & Harrison. Phoenix will be playing concert spots midweek. DG&H will be singing and playing (melodeons, concertinas & banjos) concert spots and probably session hosting at various times in the week. I may also be doing a moothie drop-in.
Cheers

Lack of early indications of the programme meant I've booked elsewhere between Sidmouth and Shrewsbury Folk Festivals but I'll study the 2017 programme when it is published to give me an idea about what might happen in 2018. Hopefully there will be plenty of workshops as well as concerts.

Think some of the comments re organisation of Whitby are slightly unfair . especially the "  They seem to have decided they don't want any new customers and instead will just screw every penny out of people who've been going for years" .
Yes it would be good to get an earlier idea of the programme , but as far a rough idea of what goes on it doesn't change all that much from year to year - you know what to expect and you can see the artists who have booked.

If you've never seen ANY copy of the programme (as I hadn't until I first went), how does that help?

I have still seen no copies of the programme outside the festival, for any year, except ones I've bought myself.  And no copy on the web.  How hard can it be to upload a PDF to archive.org?
