Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week 2016
And I didn't see you at all this year.

It seems like Folk Week is fracturing into two festivals, dance stuff round the Spa and everything else in or near the town. The Whitby Gazette had an article on Saturday saying the the whole of the Spa had been allocated to Folk Week, whereas the Regatta would ordinarily have used it at the weekend. I went to two events at the Spa but as we always stay in the town centre it's usually too far to go. Wasn't too pleased that the festival office had been moved out there - I only went to it once, to drop off some flyers for the flat key session.

There's not much wrong with the Spa as a venue apart from its bar prices, but it's inconvenient unless you're staying at the West Cliff campsite.

BTW the Fishermen's Football Club (which I hadn't been into until this year) is a rather good venue.
