Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Given how inventive/team-spirited things used to be, I can't help but wonder if we should start petitioning the government to re-introduce the old policy of closing pubs in the afternoons for Whitby Folk Week every year. (That's not to say things aren't team-spirited or wonderful these days, by the way, and some stuff such as the Family Folktunes are great. But half-pissed folk legends involved in sandcastle-building competitions? Great!)
