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?

Thanks.
