Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
I'll let Malcolm Storey guide me with this answer - but I always believed that Folk week ,was/is the week after the Whitby Regatta - and the Regatta's exact week was/is determined by the tides so it is a bit of a " moving feast-day" but not to the extent that it occurs outside of August.
