Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Next year being the 50th anniversary of Whitby folk festival, I've been trying to remember when I first visited. AFAICR it was 1968 and it was just a weekend affair in those days. But here's the tricky bit. I don't remember it being in August.

In fact if memory serves me aright, it was originally held in May over the late bank holiday weekend.

Can anyone confirm or deny same?
