Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week fringe announcements
I do feel it's a mistake not to put the programme on their website, at least the bare bones of the programme - what events are running when and a list of the main acts booked. I think that might meed Jack's objection which, IMO is a fair criticism.

Saltburn put theirs on the website as a pdf with printing disabled so you can plan ahead what you might go to but if you want a printed version you have to buy the programme, though these days with tablets and smart phones you can download and have it to hand. I still get a paper programme as a matter of principle

Last year Whitby FF produced an app for iOS/Android. You did have to pay for it but it had the full programme which you could have to hand. I did in fact pay for a copy but then went and tore a cartilage in my left knee and I was in no fit state to walk up and down Whitby's hills so didn't go at all. I still have the App on my android tablet and I assume it will be available for this years programme but I will have to pay for an update (which seems reasonable, IMO).
