OK, another version.  This includes some suggestions from Bob.  (The instrument is a Hungarian folk horn photographed in 1912).

 (:) the programme has got to the " proof reading/checking" stage so it shouldn't be too long before it's at the printers and an added attraction during Folk Week will be an exhibition at the Museum in Pannett Park ( reduced entry price for Festival Ticket holders ) on the old "Whitby Competitive Dance Festival " with some of the old trophies, photos of the dance sides etc.  ;D

Just wondering how you know, this, Ann. ;) Are you one of the proof readers?

 No  (:) but a friend is one of the festival organisers and is very good at passing on information when she gets to know anything new

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 about...

Cheers,
John

Well, after years of camping, this year I have booked a B&B. It's not far from Church Square, so I will be able to drink alcohol while stewarding at the Con, Club, and walk home. Instead of driving back to the Rugby Club with my tongue hanging out, to get a drink before the bar shuts.

You could always take the campervan anyway and rent it out to someone else on AirBnB.

I wonder if anyone already does that?  Is it legal?

Last two years it's been Tuesday, 1-3, at the Golden Lion.  I arranged it last time - is that ok with everyone again?

Ok here. But you need to be clear with the staff and perhaps get there early to save a couple of tables. Thanks for doing this. I'm driving up from France that day but will try to make it.  (:)

Thank you Ann for all of this.  I sent off for my programme this afternoon. 

Does anyone know where there might be pub sessions in the evening that might suit me?  I've been playing around 3 years so I am improver standard.  I really enjoyed Ken Watson's sessions last year and knew a fair number of tunes even though I couldn't keep up with them all.  Is there a session anywhere in the evenings which is basically English repertoire where I would stand a decent chance of being able to join in from time to time?

Probably the Board, which tends to stick to fairly familiar material.  The Elsinore has a rather idiosyncratic collective repertoire developed over many years and it might not be so easy to join in, but they'll welcome people trying.
