Thread Name: Whitby Folk Week 2018
Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week 2018
Regarding the recent posting concerning the fringe I feel that stating that Whitby ignores the fringe is a little harsh.

If pubs wish to be associated with the festival then surely it is up to them to be proactive and not expect the festival to do their job for them!

Pubs change hands so often these days that it must be almost impossible for volunteer organisers who do not live locally to keep up with those not actually hosting official events.

I cannot comment on the Eurosessions and its relationship with the festival but possibly there is fault on both sides.
