sid WHITBY Folk Week - the small print (127* d) RE: WHITBY Folk Week - the small print 30 Aug 09


This thread started with someone saying they missed a concert because they couldn't find it in the programme - then someone else said that they went, but couldn't get in 15 mins early, suggesting that a lot of people did find it, like they found everything else. So that works then!
I've been going to Whitby for 30 odd years, since the days of Church House, the scout hut and the Garland hanging from the rafters in the old Spa! - it's always been a great week and a good holiday, despite being in Yorkshire.
I'm now a regular steward at the football club each evening and this year even did a couple of "turns" to help with programme changes as both the organisers and artists were anxious to maintain a standard and to ensure that the show would go on despite all the scheduling problems thrown in their way.
Let's not forget that Malcolm Storey and others grew the festival to what it is now and grew with it, the new committee have had to catch these bouncing balls and keep them in the air, and they're not doing a bad job either. Things are still changing and will probably continue to do so. Moaning and complaining is easy and depressing, volunteering and helping is difficult but more rewarding - you choose!
