Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
What year was the Mattesson's sponsored festival?

I have vague recollections of a song contest in praise of pork products and a goody bag of salami,polony,black pudding etc, being handed out in the Old Spa Ballroom when he winning song was sung.

Did this happen or have I mis-remembered it?

And who won the song contest,I think we should be told!

My first Whitby Festival was 1968 I think,'cos I had a new car that year with a reg number of PRY 194G which I'm sure is '68.
