We believe some of our friends may well be taking up their accommodation and if so we may well pop across midweek just to be sure we will reccognise them.
If we do will try to say hello.

quite a few Folkies were at Sidmouth. It keeps the B&B booking going year on year. There were sessions on the front and apparently at one pub that has an outdoor covered area.

We did a lot of walking.

"overpriced beer, fish n chips etc-"

I thought everything was reasonably priced in Whitby. Much cheaper than larger cities and most other tourist destinations.

This must be a Yorkshire thing.......

Johnny J - Yes it is a Yorkshire thing.
I remember Tich Frier saying that he discovered when he lived in Yorkshire when it came to being "careful" with money the Scots were rank amateurs compared to the inhabitants of God's own county.

Dick - despite our occasional differences and because of our mutual support on things that really matter - it would be good to meet up sometime somewhere - and it's not just the offer of a PINT! although that might be a factor!!!!!!!!!
Keep well.

It's certainly a lot cheaper than Edinburgh but probably on a par with smaller Scottish towns.

I have noticed in recent years that the pubs now all give short measure by using the sparklers with pint to brim glasses rather than pint to line. Prices all seem OK for 0.9 of a pint though.

It's harder to ask for a "top up" if you don't quite get a full pint these days as you aren't supposed to wander around or up to the bar without really good reason. Many bars have table service only and the waiter (or bar person) who serves you is having a hard enough job too.

Prices even better in the various club premises that are used as Whitby Folk Festival venues, though of course the pubs should be (and are) supported well. What I would prefer is for the Spa to sell some better wine, from a bottle, not those pre-packed mini-cups with peel-off tops.

About now would have been the Glaisdale sing, originated by Nick and continued last year by Malcolm. Last year the first two pints were £3-50 a go but the next was £4-50. (says last years diary)
No I wasn't driving after. Booked in.

Thanks to Dick for sending me a PM telling me of the song from the Singing Postman.

I have to say I have never heard of it and I feel there may have been others on here just as confused as I.

But there you go folks the reference to was a song from the singing postman.

The first pub I ever frequented as a regular (aged 17.75) was the Providence, a town centre place close to the railway station in Hull. Actually in St Stephens Square.
The Landlady Kate and her sister ran the place and the bar (men only) was well used seven days a week by locals. The lounge was usually quiet except on weekends and was the only room a lady was allowed to drink in.
The predominant drink was Hull Brewery Mild and in fact myself and a bargee were the only regular Bitter drinkers. I recall that mild was 1/- (one shilling) a pint and the bitter 1/2 (one and tuppence). The year after I started drinking beer Selwyn Lloyd in an attempt to bribe the working class reduced beer by tuppence a pint so all of a sudden an extra pint was within reach for the drinking man.
At the time there was an old (to me) chap who every evening came in for a drink. Kate would pull him his first pint and place it on the bar. He would look at it and ask “Can you get a whisky in there?” Kate would answer “Yes, I reckon so”. “Well fill the bloody thing up then”. This went on every time he was there.

Seems odd to be doing Whitby with gardening between events instead of hill running. And I always felt the need for timetravel to fit everything in. Last night didn't need to stay up and heard the Wilsons while half asleep, watched them this morning.

Best workshop so far - on Zoom of course - IMHO - was yesterday's Swedish Tunes from Vicki Swan. Music sent out in advance for those of us who are not so quick on the ear-learning, and taken at a pace OK for ear-learners too. Nice tunes too!
But must also mention the Festival Orchestra with Carol Dawson and Steve le Voguer: lots of work gone into that, and some nice tunes to play.If I have one suggestion to make for the future, it would be good to put all 3 concert pitch parts on one stave so that we can see how it all fits together - which could be done on 1-2 pages. Yes, there is a full score, but using that would involve far too much page-turning!
And also enjoyed May Cheadle's slow session today: knew all but one of the tunes, but good to be playing them slowly rather than never quite catching up!

I thought that about the 3 Orchestra parts. Tried printing, chopping and sellotaping, but because of the way some bars were stretched to fit a line it wasn't very satisfactory.
