Any Catters going to Whitby next month? I have booked a week off work, so I will be there for a couple of days at least.This will be my first festival, so I dont really know what to expect, I'm getting exited already!

There will be quite a few of us. The Ducks will often be found about the Tap & Spile, as will some of the Hull 'Catters. Others have their own favourite pub or session. Tig and Badger usually arrive around the Tuesday, with their badge machine. If you haven't already bought your official Mudcat name badge, they will be taking advance orders, to collect when they arrive.
Last lear Mrs.Duck and myself had a Mudcat Barbecue at our cottage. We are intending to host something similae this year as well - information will be posted closer to the week.

Geoff- I just had a flashback to reading your arrangements for your Whitby barbecue last year. I'd not been reading threads long, and thought how odd that these people should be arranging to meet up with strangers, making contact by notice boards at the festival.

Amazing how different it seems now, since I first met other catters at Llanstock. Nothing would be more natural now. This place has done so much for me...

John, I imagine Whitby will be extremely busy this year, with the regatta being on the same week, so don't think this is how all festivals are. Meet up with as many catters as you can, and have a wonderful time!

Whitby is my favourite UK festival. Others (Sidmouth, for example) are bigger, and have more star performers on the bill, but Whitby is tops for atmosphere and ambience. Barring accidents, illness, or family disasters, I'll be there for the week this year, dancing with Hexham Morris Men (blue waistcoats - white trousers - mainly Cotswold), and pub-crawling when off duty. Hope to see some Mudcatters at our workshops and dance-outs, or in the Tap and Spile … or the Plough … or the Jolly Sailor … or wherever.

Wassail!

See you all at Whitby. Don't know how you recognise Mudcatters. Might I suggest you all dye your hair purple, or paint your head if you don't have hair. Did see someone at Saltburn last year extoling Mudcat and it's taken me a year to join. Saltburn's another great festival, well worth a look. Don't have to walk far either.

Please forgive my ignorance, but like I said I've never been to a festival.Do we just turn up, or do we have to buy a ticket/pass? If so how much is it and where do I get it from? Have they got a website? I did look for one, myself but could not seem to find it.Thanks.john

john in hull - At Whitby if you just turn up, there will be plenty happening around the pubs. The Folk Festival will be holding concerts etc. for much of the day. It has been possible in previous years to buy a Day Ticket, allowing you into most events (space allowing), or pay on the door for a single event. I personally find the prices being charged for single events higher than I can afford, and excessive for the length of the actual concerts, but others are welcome to their own opinions.
As has been mentioned, this year the Regatta overlaps with the opening weekend of Whitby. This means that the town will be full of people turning up to see the regatta events and funfair rides. As a result the pubs will be excessively overcrowded, and not enough room for the folkies to do their thing. Accommodation will also be a problem for the same reasons. If this is your first visit, it would probably be easier to turn up after the Weekend. As you are from Hull. I believe that the Hull Shanty Festival is on that Weekend, I know that Les and some others are this year travelling up to Whitby after the Shanty Festival.
Quack!!!

At other times we will be mostly in the Tap 'n' Spile, or in the Endeavour, or in a drunken stupor.

The best way to recognise other catters at Whitby or any other festivals is to wear your Mudcat Tee shirt or watch out for others wearing theirs. If you don't have your shirt yet I still have a few left in most sizes. You can order mudcat badges with your name on from Badger here and he will have them ready for you in Whitby.
Remember all profit from the shirts goes to Mudcat so you are helping to keep mudcat running as well as owning a beautiful eye catching shirt.
Cheers Bill

John, if you can afford it, and can be in Whitby all week, a pass is the best bet; you can go in and out of gigs as you choose, so if, for instance you want to see just one performer at one venue, then move on to another, you'll be able to do that (subject to there being seats available). On the other hand, if you're wanting to meet up with mudcatters, can't be in Whitby all week, or want to enjoy lots of free live music, spend your time in the pubs listening to sessions and singarounds.
You'll find a list of events posted up in the Tap and Spile, and can buy a programme there.
Whichever is the case, get yourself along to Whitby; you'll not regret it1

John in Hull, as has already been stated this year the Regatta weekend and the first weekend of the festival overlap. Both events fill the town on their own so accomodation unless pre-booked will almost be impossible to find (unless you've more jam than Hartleys). However several pubs (in addition to the Tap & Spile) welcome folkies with open arms. The East (old) side of the river tends to be quieter, so the Bord (John & Barbara) Black Horse (Steve & Lyn) and Endeavour John & Rosie)and the Middle Earth will be good places to look for music and where the hosts are ameniable. The Plough on Baxtergate probably has the most varied sessions in as much as the front room two back rooms the beer garden and the concert room all host sessions which go on all day. If you're not buying a ticket, Stoupes Cross Farm up near the Abbey is the nearest campsite. Good Luck. I'll be there all week with family. Yippeeeeeeeeee

If you are going to Whitby, as many do, as part folk music/ part holiday , be aware that there is foot and mouth desease on the moors (at present at Lealholm and Tranmire) and that some activities eg. Danby Show may be cancelled and that some minor roads may be closed

I'll be there as usual. See you with Scratch, if not before. It should be absolute mayhem for the first few days, so get in as early as you can to get a parking space! Ian is threatening to disappear during the latter half of the week, so you will recognise me by my fraught expression as I try and keep two 15 year old girls under reasonable control, one of whom is experiencing her first festival.

Willa - I don't think I did Sara's workshop last year, although I've done it in the past. After 20 years they tend to blur into one sort of proto-festival with memorable bits but no clear idea in which year they happened. I know I did Dave Townsend's West Gallery workshop though.

I'll be there again this year working on one of the campsites.

This year the site at Eskdale school will not be available and I am not sure if any camping is going to be available to anyone other than season ticket holders (Stakesby School) or performers (Community College).

This year I am working at the Collage I think, so any Catters on the site please make yourself known.

See you all there at the geatest festival in the world.
