"Are you sure Whitby wants you before you all start making plans"

Whitby doesn't speak with one voice, so this will be very difficult to discern. But if the lockdown has been sufficiently reduced, and there are cafes, restaurants, shops, etc... that need business then people will be within their rights to go, as long as it fits in with government guidelines. If there is a movement within Whitby - a genuine one involving business communities, councillors, etc... rather than a small handful of gobshites on Facebook tarring all folkies with the same brush because someone made half a pint of diet coke last two hours in a singaround - asking us not to go, then our party would not go. The plans are already made for most people, as the accommodation will be booked. It's just whether we go through with it. We will, however, do what we can to support a place we love as soon as it is safe to do so. Hope that answers your question!

The pubs and other venues may not feel obliged to welcome sessions and the like if there is no official festival.

That's not to say they wouldn't welcome you, me, or us as regular customers but that's a different matter.
As others have hinted, there would probably still be some spacing restrictions and limits on numbers. So, sessions could be problematic.

Guest - there are already reports of cases in Whitby. Also, Whitby is a tourist resort. As soon as restrictions are lifted, thousands of (non-folkie) people will descend upon the town within weeks. And Whitby's economy needs this - bills will still need paying, mortgages kept, food put on plates. On an annual visitor basis, folkies are a drop in the North Sea in Whitby. There may be a small risk of the odd ill-informed social media blowhard blaming folkies should there be a spike in cases there, but given the numbers of tourists that will be in Whitby (should restrictions be lifted enough for people to still visit in late August) it will be ludicrous for anyone to blame a particular sub-group of those tourists.

It should also be added that 'folk week' won't be arriving. Just a percentage, probably a fairly small one, of people with existing bookings, many of whom will be indistinguishable from your regular tourist.

Tried that. The agency are only dealing with bookings for May & June at present, and say that they don't know what their policy will be as folk week cancelled without being forced to.

I cant see how anyone can say that event organisers weren't "Forced" to cancel, the regulations quite clearly state that Public assemblies of 2 or more people are not Permitted, anyone organising such an event could leave themselves open to prosecution. that seems fairly clear to me, and I would have thought most people.

Whitby folk week is as things stand cancelled for 2020 ~ at the behest of the UK Govt ~ contracts are thus frustrated! in my view ~ there is no indication that UK Govt will give any notification of an "all clear" before the end of the 2020 year ~ indeed may continue into 2021 and in fact unlikely to be an "all clear" as such for many years if ever ~ the virus is with us and gradual return to "normal" will be some time hence

A great pity that Whitby has succumbed to the inevitable and probably wise to make the decision now.
It is not going to get better until a reliable vaccine or other cure is available for this terrible virus.
I don't know if things have changed regard to the booking of accommodation but it is normal to pay balances approximately a month before the booked date. So what is the problem? Yes deposits may be lost.
But, beware, as the Rector of Whitby told me many years ago
"there's a right way and a wrong way to most things except in Whitby where there is a right way, a wrong way and a Whitby way!!!

In my case and our "party" accommodation has had a deposit carried over from previous years ~ as I tried to point out we want to have the annual holiday in Whitby ~but if UK Govt says there is a restriction on travel the this is not possible

I therefore say the contract for holiday bookings is frustrated ~ so in our case we would go if permitted by raising the travel ban, or if not permitted rebook for the following year

This will in time need to be properly agreed as the norm for holiday booking ~ regardless of where and why!

No one should lose their deposit!!

Guest: Whitby has many singarounds/sessions in non-Folk Week time. Are they folkies or locals? Are they potentially damaging the folk week if these sessions return? And I said 'many of whom', not 'all'. I think most people will go just to be at Whitby, if allowed. As long as rules are adhered to and common sense is prevelant I doubt the Folk Week will be damaged by anyone.

A bigger potential problem for 2021 Folk Week is the fact that the Regatta for this year has been cancelled whilst at the same time announcing that they will be sharing their dates with Folk Week in 2021.
No doubt the festival is/will be aware of this and make appropriate arrangements.
Whether individuals want to plan that far ahead is entirely their decision but at least mudcatters have been alerted.
Ray, although I might share your feelings regarding deposits, just be aware of the WHITBY WAY!

Yes I know all about the 'Whitby way'. Couple of years ago booked a flat a year in advance, was informed 6 weeks in advance that the flat had been sold. Of course any flat available then was dearer but all the agency offered was a return of my deposit, said my contract was with the owner not them, but refused to give me contact details for the owner!
In the end I found a larger flat and an extra couple to share with, so wasn't out of pocket, but even the 2 bedroom flats similar to the one I paid the deposit on were dearer by June.

Some people pay quite a large proportion of the price as deposit, it's not pennies. And if you've booked for folk week and there isn't a folk week it isn't the same at all.

I do wish that people would not refer to the Folk Week and Regatta clashing.
It is not true - the Regatta, for reasons I have never been able to fathom, decide to share their dates with Folk Week on an arbitrary basis. They say it is to do with the tides but that has been proved a nonsense on more than one occasion. I suspect the real reason is that they wish to have the event as late in the year as possible as it marks the end of their season.
In planning Folk Weeks during my tenancy I always planned for a joint weekend - whether or not it was happening.   
The comments above regarding the coincidence of dates emanate from my alerting Folk Week participants and Mudcatters to the position for 2021.

Another nasty rumour Mo. Any idea who made the decision? Or did the rumour not get that far?
I pointed out many times to the council (as much help as a chocolate fireguard)and other well meaning folk that the dates of Folk Week were determined by other folk events around the UK and it was the Regatta which moved about. Any discussions such as they were always focused on getting the Folk Week to similarly dodge about to give the Regatta a clear run.
Incidentally the dealings with the council will be detailed in a long chapter in my forthcoming bestseller where all the skeletons will be revealed. (Ho Ho)

About 10 years ago when Folk Week and the Regatta "coincided" I had a conversation with one of the organisers of the Regatta in the Elsinore. He is a man a know socially and professionally.

He insisted it was all to do with the tides.

So I looked back over the previous 25 years or so. I had access to programme dating back over that period.

Regatta had been as early as the 2/3/4th of August and as late as the last weekend in August and running into September on one occasion. This unfortunately somewhat negates the suggestion given to Malcolm that the Regatta worked to a timetable.

I next looked at the times and heights of the tide for that particular year. Two weeks prior (which would have left folk week clear) the maximum difference in the tides was 11 minutes and 100 millimetres (about 4 inches)

I'm sure people will come to their own conclusions.

Mo
We did never make any such announcement and never would as we could not guarantee that the Regatta would hold its side of any bargain.
It matters not in any case as, although there were occasional contacts with the Regatta nothing concrete or anywhere near was ever agreed.
If I could be bothered I could show you the letter (it was the same one each time).
I was refering to the longer festivals, not that it matters as I am sure that the longer festivals did not effect the weekend events. We always had a fair number of people arriving Sunday evening from events or leaving Friday morning to attend events. Including on the Thursday and Friday a number of stall holders.
Raggy
Thanks for that - it is far better coming from you rather than me.
