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.

 .... however they are not official campsites and please do not empty the Elsan etc. into the heather, walkers including children have made extremely unpleasant discoveries  :-\

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.

Thanks Choonz. My partner is with a booked team so no problem with us getting on the official campsite... and as we don't have a dog it's no issue for us if the campsite doesn't accept them.

The only wild camping we're planning on doing is on the overnight run from his final ceilidh spot to my 10:30am workshop in Towersey the following day, and like all good folkies we will leave no trace.

Helena,
Since your partner is with a booked side, you should be eligible for free parking at the artists' campsite, which is at the Rugby Club. It is near the edge of town, so a bit of a hike to get to most of the venues and has no electric hook-ups, but it is well-run, quiet and has toilets and showers. I have stayed there for several years and have never had a problem with it. However, you need to book in advance. Contact Barry Evans: barry@whitbyfolk.co.uk

I may follow you out...I'm calling the last ceilidh...and the band is doing the Saturday at Shrewsbury...fortunately the soundcheck isn't until 4 00pm....probably none of this then... :|glug

My guess is that Helena is talking about the artiste's site at the Rugby Club. As she says it's her first visit so may be unaware that there are actually 3 camp sites we tend to use. The Festival Campsite at Airey Hill School for punters with tickets, the Artistes camp site at the Rugby Club for people booked to play/sing/dance/steward etc., and the Moor & coast camp site at the Community College, which is an occasional camp site run commercially, which doesn't have serviced pitches, but has showers, and toilets.

Thanks guys, yes our camping is at the Rugby Club and is all organised - I was just wondering what the attractions of the unofficial campsites might be.

No, I don’t have a tune list. It’s an informal session not a workshop.  (:)

The response last year was underwhelming. I don't know whether it was the move from the Elsinore that did it, but definitely a non event.  Does anyone have any ideas about having another meet this year, and where?

Well I would prefer it to be somewhere with less time constraint, as it needs to be flexible. Folks are often at workshops/concerts/lunch etc, so a 1pm till 2pm, or a 2pm till 3 pm, doesn't work. People tended to drift in and out when it was at the Elsinore, and it happened of a long period.
Just my thoughts.

I can't answer that at the moment. The information the festival organisers have sent me is less than clear about this. I will contact them over the weekend to ask for clarification.
