We are returning to the F.F. this year after taking a break I have always gone to the Cobblers Monday singarounds, the last time I went to the F.F. this was no longer on the programme, does any mud caters know if it will be on this year?

There is a facebook page where people chat about the festival, so if no-one here knows. Last year there were the mid-morning Shanty sessions in the Endeavour (crowded) and an evening singaround in the Rifle club run by Jo & Mo and no doubt others both on the programme and Fringe.

Graeme Knights and Jim Magean usually run the lunch time singaround in the Endeavour with a nautical theme. There is also a singaround upstairs in the Spa every lunchtime and of course Mo and Jos.

Not going back after our horrendous experience last year.

A new problem for this year which makes it even less appealing: the Whitby War Weekend starts as soon as the Folk Week finishes. This wouldn't have been a problem in earlier years - it's been a small-scale nostalgiafest for people who like to dress up in tin hats and beige cardigans. But given where England is going, it's all too likely to turn into a Farascist rally with the whole town taken over by drunken thugs in Union Jack T-shirts. (I haven't been monitoring the murkier regions of social media to see what the kippers might be planning, but somebody ought to).

Well, I had a great time last year, as every year.
Hadn't heard of War weekend (sounds an odd idea)

Mo tc - for your info, Episode 4 of the recently shown second series of Channel 5's programmes about the North Yorkshire Steam Railway featured the War Weekend and the railway's role during the Second World War. Last year, for the first time, the organisers banned the attendance of re-enacters from the German side....

isn't the place busy enough without a War weekend?

The War Weekend seems to have been a fairly low-key hobbyist event so far - it follows on from WFW, so the folkies would be leaving as the war buffs arrive.

I don't know what to make of disinviting the German re-enactors. Re-enacting WW2 is such an un-German thing to do that I presume most of that side are actually British?
