It may be worth checking with booking agent,there may be a sublet clause,also because you took out the booking you could be liable for damage if any caused.
All depends on your contract.

Alternatively they may allow you to pass the house on legitimately if you supply the new renters details.  The company I deal with in Sidmouth allowed me to pass my usual place on to friends one year whole retaining my option on it for future years.   It might even be worth asking them first on case there's a waiting list in operation.

We're a bit between the devil and the deep blue, as I'm waiting for the surgeon to give me a date, then there's six weeks recovery. I hate being indecisive, but it's a b****r when you're relying on someone else for what you can do next!

Hi all Whitby goers

I am looking for a room in Whitby this year from the Friday evening and leaving on Thursday lunchtime if anyone has a spare room and would like to share the costs? 

I am not wanting a whole house as trying to keep down the costs

Fully house trained and melodeon daft.  :||:

Looking good for visiting Whitby during a trip to see my family. Will be following this thread for hints and tips etc. Will probably only get to visit for a couple of days early after the weekend. Not too far away now. I normally single row so bringing a D and a G box would be good?

A one row in D and a one row in G would be fine for many of the sessions, though you might have to do some judicious box-swapping mid-tune. Also there is the topography of Whitby to contend with, lugging two boxes up and down the steep hills and along some of the narrow streets thronged with holiday-makers.
Look forward to seeing you there. Please make yourself known to people.  (:)

One rows should be fine for the English sessions - Ken Watson used to lead his sessions using one rows - but they would be somewhat restrictive for the fringe Euro-sessions.

That's a bit too hi-tech.  Mostly we talk to each other in the street. You can't walk more than 50 yards without bumping into someone who knows about the latest gen.  8)

Jolly good. That's rather what I was hoping for.
