The paper booklet programme has useful maps in the centre pages with locations of all the venues around the town. Not sure if the apes have them.
In last year's WFW app, when you click on an event a map comes up showing where the venue is. I just checked, as I still have last year's app on my phone.

Sir John

Excellent, that's what I want.  The app is not currently available (I checked) but I will keep a lookout. Paper programmes are nice and all that but if I have to go out and buy a C5 envelope and some stamps then I'm happy to wait until it is available.

......Now I know what I'm supposed to be doing  ;)

 My Pokerwork was picked up this afternoon  ;D out on loan ready for the beginners D/G workshops so Christine can get the feel of the instrument before Folk Week, she's really looking forward to it  :|||: ;D

We’d all better get some practice in going up very steep hills carrying melodeons then ....

Still squeezing after all these years.
Mostly on hohners , with a couple of Dinos and a smattering of anglos - and now a Jeffries duet

I'll be coming in my motorhome again. Does anyone know whether the situation is still the same on the main car park, in that overnight camping/parking is not allowed?
If it isn't, should I camp at the college? Does anyone have contact details?

The ban on overnight motorhome parking in the main Marina car park (Langbourne Road) is still in force.

I don't know about the college though.

Hugh, the Moor and Coast campsite seems to be running at the College again.

The website is here

 (:) if you're camping at the College then it's only a short walk to the First In Last Out pub, 1 York Terrace, YO21 1PT where some of the workshops and sessions will be. The Chippy is opposite the pub, Eddie's butchers is also on the corner near the pub and if you turn left at the pub up back Park Terrace Jason's very useful newsagents/grocers and off-licence is only a few yards, it saves trotting all the way down town for milk, bacon etc. There is an ATM cash point in Jason's but it's not a free one.

Thanks Steve, Warbler, and Ann for the above info.
Looks like the College then, but I'll give the butchers a miss Ann if you don't mind!

A note re the Moor and Coast campsite at the college.
Dogs are NOT now permitted.
Great shame.   
Always enjoyed camping on there.

Broadings Farm campsite for caravans just a mile out of Whitby on the Guisborough Road,  A171 used to allow dogs even though it is a working farm. There are probably others, I'll ask around  (:)

Er... with all this talk of alternative campsites may I ask what's wrong with the official one?

No electrical hook up, and I think you need to buy a ticket to qualify.

Ah... if that's it then no problem.  It's my first time in Whitby and I was wondering what the issues were that made alternative campsites desirable.  EHU not required :)

Thank you Sir John

Just dont park in Whitby overnight,you will get a fine.

If you want to wild camp there are 2 car parks on top of Blue Bank on road between Pickering and Whitby.

Helena, I have stayed at the Festival site a couple of times when I bought a season ticket enjoyed staying there.  I think the facilities are fine, it's quiet at night and they keep it secure.  I prefer to pay as I go these days and the festival site is for season tickets holders only. :-[   The site is in the grounds of a primary school so understandably they don't accept dogs.
