Whitby Folk Week
For over forty years, Whitby has been host to Whitby Folk Week.
Whitby Folk Week is one of the busiest weeks in Whitby’s calendar. Folk Week sees the town deluged in visitors, enjoying the music and dance associated with folk music. Each year this event seems to grow even larger.
Public houses, street corners, halls and venues fill with dance teams, bands, workshops and singers all with the aim of enjoying themselves. Around the Whitby Bandstand and Whitby Tourist Information Centre there are often Morris Dancers and musicians filling the air with music and song.
This year there are thought to be more than 600 events over Whitby Folk Week. Weekly and daily tickets for the different venues can be bought in advance from the Whitby Folk week website.
There are activities for children as well as adults during this special week in Whitby's calendar.
Why not come and stay with us as your base for the fun and festivities of the week ahead. We are only a short 20 minute walk into the town centre where the streets are alive with folk music.
You will be able to watch all the Morris Dancers perform all their different dances that they have planned to showcase at this years festival.
If you enjoy the Folk Festival then why not make Whitby Holiday Park your destination for Whitby Folk Week 2014.
