Hello Monxton  ;D found last year's copy so if you'd like to send me a pm with your address I'll pop it in the post, there are a few scribblings in the events listing but otherwise ok  ;D
 Cheers   Ann
You're very kind. PM sent, thanks.

 (:) the first workshops usually start at 10am and last for 1hr 20min giving a ten minute change over time before the next workshop starts at 11.30am, then again at 1pm  ;D the places usually holding workshops are the Middle Earth, the Rifle Club, the Metropole Hotel, Whitby Mission Hall, West Cliff School, Spa Pavilion, Fisherman's Rowing Club, Conservative Club, the Endeavour, hopefully they will be happy to be used as venues again this year  :|||:
  I'll try to get my mits on a programme as soon as they're available, sieve through the 600 odd listings and post a potted list of "melodeon interest" events, there are generally at least a couple a day ..... sometimes more  ;D  :||: :|||:

I believe there is some doubt about the use of the Middle Earth this year. At the end of last year's festival, I just got a vague impression they'd had enough of hosting festival events. I may be wrong though.

Ann - if you are ever over on the east side and passing by, would it be worth calling in for a beer and seeing what you could glean from landlady Jill?

 ;D If anyone is going to be up this part of the country for the weekend before Folk Week, perhaps having a fortnights holiday, there is Salburn Folk Festival 9th to 11th of August, a very friendly festival just up the coast in the lovely seaside town of Saltburn, or if you're spending a whole 14 days in Whitby then Whitby Regatta 10th to 12th of August has plenty to entertain the family before you spend the next week immersed in folkie pleasures  :||: ;D :|||: :|glug

 You're quite right Steve  ;D have checked with the "venues organiser" and there will be no workshops in the Middle Earth during Folk Week. There is a new venue for this year, the Arch and Abbey micro pub on Skinner Street,  ;D :|glug though I haven't heard which workshops will be held there.

OK - thanks for the information, Ann. I don't know the Arch and Abbey. I wonder if any of my workshops will be held there...

Booked in from the Monday and will be in Station, Black Horse, mainly singing with at least one pilgrimage to the Board for some proper music.   Look forward to meeting people

It's about halfway down Skinner St on the uphill side I think. Not 100% sure, but I do remember it being open for the first time last year. and people saying that it was nice.

I'm looking forward to this, it'll be my first Whitby, nestling snugly betwixt Dartmoor and Towersey. I have no idea what to expect in the way of sessions and workshops - I like to dance a lot at festivals as well as play so hoping for some good dance workshops. Either way I think I'm going to be free range most of the time as my partner will be with a booked team.

Loads of dance workshops, if you're interested in Irish set dancing, the Gerry O'Reilly does grand workshops.

Ah yes, now I know it, thanks! I passed it several times last year but never went in. There always seemed to be the sound of continuous 100 mph reels coming from inside somewhere. Not really my idea of a good session, and anyway I always seemed to have somewhere else to get to. Handy for Betty Botham's tea rooms across the road though.  (:)

Typical ;) That's me and women defined, I can always be sure to  pick the one thing they don't like. That usually ends up being me, but ho hum, c'est ma vie.

The Arch and Abbey is a lot more conveniently situated than the Middle Earth and I hope the room is larger because the Middle Earth was always cramped. People often struggled to get into my Well Known Tunes at a Steady Pace sessions there. Perhaps, Ann, since you know the Venue Organiser, you might be able to hint to him/her that a venue with a larger room than the Middle Earth would be more suited to my Well Known Tunes... sessions.

For those, like Helena, who are attracted to good sessions and like to dance as well, they could do worse than to drop in at the George on Baxtergate for our Euro-sessions, which include French dancing as well as playing tunes from all over Europe (but not the British Isles). As last year, the sessions will be from 15:00 to 17:00 every afternoon except Sunday.

Ah well, at least you tried to help Sir John. I just looked at website and the programme (so far) looks to be a good one. Plenty of ceilidh, Playford and morris workshops it seems, even a couple of bands I might like to go and see. Add in some sessions and it should be perfect, hoping for some rapper workshops though.

Don’t knock unnatural talent.  That can be in high demand.

Link to Whitby Yacht Club's page   ;D  click on the "webcam" box on the top menu bar for a view down the pier and also the important tide times as the sea comes up to the cliffs at high tide. See what the weather's like before you go out :||:  :|glug :|||: :M
