Thread Name: Whitby Folk Week fringe announcements
Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week fringe announcements
One limiting factor is of course lack of suitable venues to put on

events ~ added to the clashing of The Regatta ~ this leads to restricted

accommodation availability and over full pubs

The festival btw does rely greatly on goodwill and very many artists and

regulars receive no fees or expenses ~ often doing the "work" for

nothing ~ and the furtherance of folk song/music/dance etc (too many complications)

Whitby folk week is and should be a fun time and ppl attend for a variety of reasons ~ many largely for the beer of course!

Whatever enjoy yourselves and I hope to see some of you there god willing
