Still no news on the programmes    ::) but as soon as there is I'll post and put a "potted list" of melodeon and concertina interest events up. It won't be everything, just enough to tickle people's fancy ( if I'm still allowed to use that expression in these pc times  >:E  >:E), to see everything that's on please buy a programme.
 Here's a link to the Whitby Weather site very handy for checking the tide times to avoid free lifts in the lifeboat and there are links to webcams and other useful things  ;D

Visiting the bleedin' Whitby Folk Week website, or just moaning because they are using multiple media to pass out the information, take your pick.

;D those people not buying season tickets or without constant Internet access and not on Facebook find out last it seems  ::)  My friend usually gets the programmes to deliver to shops in town and let's me know when they arrive so I can nip round and buy a couple.  ;D :|||:

Yay! That information wasn't on the website as of yesterday when I last checked. It has the vital extra information that an app will be available - handy for those of us who think life is just too short to purchase a C5 envelope and £1.32 worth of stamps. (:)

With there being no sign of any progress on this on their site yesterday, we sent an email. And now my wife is convinced that our email has woken someone from a deep sleep!

Mind you, I do like a good moan. But I'm still not in love with facebook, I'd sooner refer to it as anti-social media, as that seems more suited to its effect on impressionable people.

I'd like to agree with you opinion of Facebook but then we would both be wrong    8)

Sliding even further off-topic; I cannot possibly see how walking around with your eyes fixed on a phone screen can be anything other than anti-social! (That's what I see every time I leave the house.)

Though I haven't used it myself, I have heard that the app is quite useful. It works, and it keeps up with the inevitable changes that happen after the programme has been printed.

I have found the app to be excellent, and the only person I can remember moaning about it, is an inveterate complainer anyway ;)

Towersey have an app and it's excellent. Amazingly you can look things up, select them and add them to your personal calendar without having to walk around with your eyes fixed on a phone screen.  I look forward to the Whitby app.

The Whitby app allows you to do those things too.  Only disadvantage I can think of is that you can't scribble notes in the margins!

The paper booklet programme has useful maps in the centre pages with locations of all the venues around the town. Not sure if the apps 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.
