Subject: Which 'Catters going to Whitby Fest?
From: Steve Parkes
Date: 24 May 04 - 04:41 AM

Mrs P has uncharacteristically booked us a week's holiday in Whitby for the Festival. She'll probably look in once or twice (she's very partcular about who she goes to see), while I shall be there a bit more often. I don't think the programme comes out till July, so I shall have to wait and see what tickets to book.

Meanwhile, what friends-I-haven't-met-yet (& those I have) should I be keeping an eye out for up there? Anything tips? (We're not camping.)

Steve

Linda and I are planning to get up there again this summer. I was thinking about comming via the Hull Nautical Festival. Linda will have only got back from holiday and should be meeting me up there.

GOVERNMENT HEALTH WARNING - This Festival could seriously damage your vocal chords (esp. The Tap & Spile). You are advised to drink plenty of beer and perhaps even suck a "Fisherman's Friend" (if she'll let you) to compensate for this.

I'm planning on going this year, as there's a weeks gap this year between Whitby and Broadstairs, which I usually attend

While I'm on, is there anyone driving up to Whitby from London way Sat to Sat, who can give me a lift? I'll share the petrol money, of course.

Pm me or email

I'll be there as usual, but I probably won't be seen in many of the aforementioned pubs. I'll be too busy getting my money's worth, going to workshops, concerts, ceilidhs etc. I not too keen on sitting in smokey crowded pubs all week listening to 'The Fields of Athenry'.
Mind you I will be in 'The Elsinor' on Wed lunchtime to see the 'Lunchtime Legends'.

It goes without saying that The Good Lady Jingle & meself will be int'owd spot all of the best ten day party in the WORLD.!!! Now, we are normally esconced(is that a word?) in the Middle Earth most nights, but Les and Sandra(the licencees) are no longer involved in the running of the pub. A new tenant has just taken over. I shall call in this weekend to enquire about Folk Week's arrangements with the new people(who I believe I know anyway).
    Now, the Middle Earth has always been a bit "alternative" since me mates Jim, Andy & I started the stuff in the seventies, so I'm afraid you will hear Fields of Athenry every night, maybe twice! Plus every other cliched song, but also skiffle, rock & roll, trad folk and jazz.
Plus it is one of only two pubs in Whitby where you can perform outside(weather permitting). I shall also enquire wether the Late (I mean LATE) hours will still apply!!!
    If you are looking for a quietish session, The Middle Earth ain't for you, especially as some of us accompany everybody!!
    We have just recently bought a tiny pad in Whitby so that's gonna save uis at least £50 in taxi fares this Folk week!

Ossen et al, the Glaisdale run is, as has become "tradition", on the first Sunday of Folk Week. As the Moon and Sixpence has closed the fair Lady Wombat and I spent a couple of Saturday lunchtimes driving out along the railway line to try a find another suitabel venue only to find ourself back in Glaisdale talking to the Lanlord of the Arncliffe Arms who is to open his lower bar which we can have sole use of, he is going to put staff on and I will ask that he has the facilities to make sandwiches etc. The new train timetable should be avaialble this weekend so I will pick up a copy and let people know the times of trains. Approx 12.30 out and 4.00 back, I din't know that the Glaisdale Sunday had set itself up to rival Lisdoonvarna in the matchmaking stakes, normally the matchmaker get a fee ........... El Ted are you listening!!

Sandy & I will be there as usual, in all the pubs mentioned and playing & possibly dancing for the Scratch Morris.
Let's not get too carried away just yet though, as there are many other festivals to enjoy before then ... Chippenham, Bishop's Castle, Alcester, Chorley, Abbots Bromley, Luts'k (Ukraine) & Sidmouth to mention just a few!
The Glaisdale trip sounds worth a visit - not been on that before. Meet at the railway Station for the 12.30 ish train, with music/singing on the train and then at the pub, Raggy?
What's this about Scratch Mummers, Les? Sounds interesting! When and where? What play? What kit needed? Do you need any help in sorting it?

The train out and back is wonderful, the conductor normally has to collect tickets from two old men, one of their wife's and a dog. But once a year he gets us lot, singing our heads off on the way out, every train song we can think of, however tenuous, and then on the way back with eleventeen pints inside us, big happy smiling faces giving it big licks with harmonies etc, last year we even had a Irish step dancer doing his best to the rocking rythym of the train....... absolutely brilliant
