Unfortunately, when I enquired about this a few weeks ago, I was told by Ricahard G that it would be just Saturday night and Sunday afternoon and the only venue at that time was the Captain Cook (which I don't like much, to be honest). It wasn't going to be worth the trouble of finding accommodation (if it was available) or the time / costs travelling to Staithes (a not inconsiderable distance). Now that it looks like it might be worth going along to, it's too late for me to make the arrangements, unfortunately. I love Staithes too.

Interesting snippet of info - the landlady's partner at the Cod and Lobster is Dick Emery's son

The Captain Cook is right next to it. The Cod and Lobster is down in the old village, literally on the sea wall, so is a couple of minutes walk down and a bit slower coming back up. There is a less steep route you can take than the main drag up the high street - you go through all the little ginnels and feel as if you are walking through people's back yards, but it is a perfectly permitted route. If you first follow it from the car park down the hill, rather than trying to find it going up the hill, it will be better seen and followed, so you know for the return journey.

We love Staithes and go to a music gathering earlier in the year.
Sounds great and seeing who is playing wish we had heard a bit sooner.
Wendy Arrowsmith and Bob Fortune are both fine songwriters and performers and then there are others as well.
Great weekend to all.

Any feedback on how this went, please? I so wanted to go. In view of the weather we had this side of the country, at the weekend, though, I think it was just as well we'd decided not to travel across the Pennines

Twas good, Cod & Lobster is a great venue for singing sea songs with the cliffs and harbour as a back drop. A bit sparsely attended would be my only negative comment (on Sunday anyway) we were playing elsewhere (well Redcar, just down the road!) on Saturday night so didn't get there.

Met Nutty of this forum, which was nice!

Paul (waiting for his computer to be fixed so still using Wendy's cookies)

There was a very good singaround on Saturday afternoon hosted by Steve Dawes and Helen Pitt along with Monkey's Fist.

Attendance on Sunday was sparse - possibly due to poor publicity - but the performances were good.

I especially Wendy Arrowsmith. I loved the songs and enjoyed meeting her and Paul in the flesh.

It was a good weekend. The singaround on Saturday afternoon was excellent as mentioned above. There was a rollicking night in the Cod and Lobster on Saturday with the Men of Staithes and Monkey's Fist, and a quieter one in the Captain Cook with Rchard G and Steve Dawes and Helen Pitt. Sunday afternoon was a s described above. Earlier publicity and more people next year.
