Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week fringe announcements
Putting up a "bare bones" version of the current year's programme isn't anywhere near as attractive as a complete listing of last year's. The sheer range of different events is extraordinary, but you have to actually SEE the programme to realize that, and to get an idea how many of them might be for you.

I have been asking about this for several years now, with no comment whatever from anybody involved with WFW about why they don't do it. I probably downloaded ten times as much data as a full PDF of their programme on the bus into work this morning - given the file, it's a five-minute task.

An app is a great step forward in convenience (and I'll probably buy it), but it isn't going to attract any new punters if there's no accommodation left for them by the time it's released.
