Thread Name: Whitby Folk Week 2016
Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week 2016
I have noticed that some years (recently??) the collectors rattling tins in the 'official' pub sessions have not been as noticeable.

I do buy a season ticket. Really good value, and gives me flexibility - I can pop in to part of a concert then on to a workshop / session / dance. Others 'pay-as-they-go' and plan more carefully, to make sure they get full value from the hings they go to. No doubt others meet up in the same pub with the same crowd each year.
Room for all.

For me some of the fringe is an important part of the week. E.g. the Eurosessions, which I think I've heard are on but not over Regatta weekend (can't find the post/email though).
