If anyone wants to take over the mantle I will wish you well and if required give help. basically I've run out of Ummph!!!

I not spoken to the landlord, nor do I know the times of the trains.

Well this is all very uninformative (nothing new there!)
Whitby is in the UK on the east coast in Yorkshire.
unfortunately, for anyone wishing to visit the town whilst in the vicinity you will find it nigh-on impossible to find anywhere to park as there are yellow lines all over town and restrictions to the few and very small car parks !! My feeling is that this will mean a certain decline in attendance at what is a fantastic festival.
I for one am giving it a miss - have fun anyway.

Jojofolkagogo, there is no need to pay to park at Whitby, providing you are prepared to walk a bit. I've attended the festival for 29 years and lived in the town for the past 11 years. I have never, that I can recall, bought a parking ticket during the festival.

Even if you do have to park in the pay and display zones most of the holiday accommodation will provide passes for free or next to nothing.

I will miss it this year I think but you never know!

Does the Waiting Room have music? I have never been in it. Is it busy?

Hoping to find somewhere to play on one of the afternoons with some friends which is not TOO busy and noisy and I was going to aim for the Black Horse out of habit because of its size

The Waiting Room has small, quiet groups of people singing and playing in the afternoons. If what you play involves Highland pipes, fire juggling or a Marshall stack you might look for somewhere else.

Jack, please don't offence but your comments seem to be very negative.

The Waiting Room has a quite small capacity Nick, maximum about 35 people, it is small, yet intimate. All acoustic, as you would wish, and like any folk session it is a good as the people who attend.

Sharon and Gary who run the bar are lovely, very welcoming to all, they keep an excellent ever changing selection and beers, ciders and wine and although this is their first folk festival I am quite confident they will do a "grand job"

You may be pleased to hear they do not sell Lager of spirits which does help to keep some elements away from the bar!

I like the quiet atmosphere, I certainly wasn't complaining.

It's right in the centre of what is a fairly small town so it's easy to check out in advance, no matter where you're based.

And their wi-fi works well.

Re parking and paying I've always found somewhere albeit with a walk. Worst I did was B&B somewhere beyond West Cliff where I had to move my car on in the morning! At night the harbourside P is free (or has been). You have to walk at Whitby.
Best B&B was Ruswarp (Hall I think) but that meant walking in from Ruswarp, though there was a footpath.

For what it's worth, "Guest,guest" (like a posh double-barrelled Guest?) I think it is both impertinent and irrelevant to you. And unnecessarily provocative in a non-contentious thread. You can always join and send private messages to people rather than try and pick fights. Your choice.

Fascinating game John, purported to be the fastest field game in the world. High scoring, all action and a hard physical game played by men, not the nancy boys who play English football.

I've heard it said there are only 8 rules and one of those is "Thou shalt not kill" apart from that anything goes.

Try it sometime ......... watching, not playing!

The Eurosessions and Flat Key Session are arranged. I've posted announcements on the Whitby Folk Week, Melnet and Eurosessions FB pages, with PDFs for a sheet of business-card-format flyers. All are in the Cellar Bar of the George Hotel: flat key session Tuesday 21st 1-3pm, Eurosessions 3-5pm Sat 18th to Fri 24th, every day but not Sunday 19th because the George needs the restaurant space then.

As ever, I only decided today to attend, as my diary can be a bit hectic.

And again, as ever, had no problem booking accommodation for the nights I wanted. All done on line in a matter of minutes. I have always been bemused by those speaking of everywhere being full. Not my experience. The punch cards that hotels provide mean no parking issues either.

I noticed that although there have been many years where work prevented me going, it's forty years since my first Whitby this year. There were a small number of vocal negative voices back then. It seems to have become a tradition. I bloody love it, all of it. If you are wondering whether to go, do so. Normal people have a right good time. Miserable ones occasionally tap their feet in time to the music, under the tables where you can't see them...

No pint with Dave the Gnome this year? Ah well..

Single Whitby to Glaisdale £4:70

Return Whitby to Glaisdale or vice versa £4:80

Prices are for one adult
The usual railcard discounts apply so a crumbly like me with a railcard is £3:20 return.

I only went for the first time last year (don't know why I had not been previously) and I really enjoyed it.

Lovely area if the weather stays good but worth a trip for a change from the crowds in Whitby and they do a good variety of hearty meals.

Not the full week then? From observation of the "no vacancies" signs as walk too and from my digs a lot of the B&B trade if for less than the full week these days. Monday to Thursday night would be easier at short notice than Friday to Sunday.

Nobody will notice Tattie - can't remember when I was last asked to show my crumblies card and you can always renew it on line. Check whether you get anything from your local council. Our cards comes down by about £12 just by quoting a number / reference from the council.

You've a whole week to get it together.

Well done to Nick and thankyou for having organised this great trip for so many years. It has given much pleasure to so many and I presume it was often not without it's organisational problems. Good luck to Malcolm for continuing the good work. I hope subsequent train/ music trips continue from strength to strength and everyone has a great time.

I may be in the Waiting Room during Folk Week but I won't be on the train and on the train is where you said you were taking a bottle of wine.

Do keep up dear boy!!! :-)

I'll be at home, when you good people are singing and making merry, watching Galway V Limerick in the All Ireland Hurling Championship Final.

Nice to see you getting you priorities right Raggytash. Well done to Malcolm for 'stepping up to the plate'. I've never managed to make it to the Glaisdale train as my Irish Set Dance workshop does not finish till 2.20pm. I'll just have to console myself by watching the hurling!

I am hoping that Galway can repeat their success of last year and bring back the Liam McCarthy to the county for the second year running.

In all honesty I would rather be there watching it in Dublin or at least in my local over there.

I went to the Whitby Folk Week in about 2005, so I tend to think that I know everything there is to know about the festival. But I've never heard of the Glaisdale Train, and I thought it was a train song thread.
So, what's the Glaisdale train?

Joe - I ran the thing for twenty five years and still don't know everything there is to know about the festival!

The Glaisdale train was started by Raggytash to get away from the the Regatta when they decided to share their dates with the Folk Week.

There is a train service between Whitby to Middlesborough that on a Sunday provides a timetable that allows people to catch a train to Glaisdale early afternoon returning at the English / UK teatime.

The Arncliffe Arms has hosted a song and music session on the Sunday of Folk Week for a number of years now and will do so again in 2018.

The train ride passes through a particularly picturesque area, the pub does excelent good honest fare and the Beggar's Bridge is just down the road.

Hope this helps!

Hi Jo & Mo

Think the festival should order you a taxi from the station to the pub - or perhaps Tattie Boggle can become a real Samaritan and take you on board as well.

Will make a real effort to join you at least once at the Rifle Club - incidentally how many of the thirty one years has the Marathon been each of the two venues; the sadly lamented Plough and t' Rifle Club?

Evening Eurosessions are in the upstairs hall of the Friendship Rowing Club starting at 8pm. Not too sure what happens after that - the afternoon sessions will be at George Hotel at 3pm-5pm Mon to Fri.

Different in the evenings from last year because the Middle Earth has gone gastro. I guess that will affect other events, both fringe and scheduled.

Message for Joe Nicholson and Maureen
(can't find the Glaisdale Train thread)
Joe if you want picking up from Glaisdale station I can do that as I'm having to drive down. The tw@s cancelled my train down from Dinsdale minute before it was due though still declared On Time.
So I'll call at Glaisdale Station. Of course they might cancel that train. I'll not be here to see any reply message.

Any suggestions for a pub that would accept 6 or 7 people to play where we could just turn up and start something? Tuesday afternoon from about 1 until 4pm.

Selfishly, I don't particularly want to go and join a 'big' singaround (like Middle Earth or the Fleece) and have a go every few hours ( :)! ) as I don't meet up with the people that often and would like to make the most of it.

So a bit like a closed open session if that makes sense.

A lot depends on how busy it is this year!

I gather the Waiting Room has an organised afternoon thing going on so we might be a bit intrusive.

Station is probably too busy and noisy unless the little room on the right is open for playing (it used to just be unaccompanied singing but that seems to have disappeared over the last few years so it might be a possible place)

Outside the Fleece might be possible

Black Horse - is that busy this year?

Last Inn Last out I think stopped a few years back.

The Golden Lion behind Ladbrokes is another I have played in and it's been quieter than many

Dolphin during the day or is that just food?

Any thoughts welcomed :)
