8-9 February 2020 - Whitby Steampunk Weekend 
 
Steampunk is a retrofuturistic subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. 
 
Positioned in the beautiful Whitby Spa Pavilion, the venue will be full of over 80 colourful and friendly Merchandise stalls offering artisan and bespoke Steampunk, Alternative and unique Gothic products. 
 
 
 
24-26 April 2020 - Goth Weekend 
 
The Whitby Goth Weekend® (WGW®) is an alternative festival incorporating the Bizarre Bazaar Alternative Market which features over 100 indoor stalls. It was founded in 1994 by Jo Hampshire and has grown to become one of the world’s premier Goth events. 
 
 
 
Thursday 30 April 2020 - Tour de Yorkshire 
 
The sixth edition of the men's race will take place between 30 April and 3 May and will form part of the inaugural UCI ProSeries, and its new 2.Pro classification remains the highest-possible status for a multi-day race outside of the UCI WorldTour. 
 
The 176.5km route will go through Hornsea, Bridlington, Flamborough, Filey, Scarborough, Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby and Redcar. 
 
The second intermediate sprint of Stage One will take place at Whitby Abbey with the riders heading through Whitby town centre on to Sandsend, followed by the second King of the Mountain climb of the day on the Côte de Lythe Bank. 
 
 
 
20 May 2020 - Planting of Penny Hedge 
 
The ceremony takes place yearly on the morning of Ascension Eve, at approximately 9 am (depending on tide) opposite The Middle Earth Tavern and dates from 1159. 
 
It is said that Norman noblemen killed a hermit who had given sanctuary to a wounded wild boar they were hunting. Dying, the hermit was said to have forgiven them – but the Abbot of Whitby ordered that, as a penance, they should erect a hedge every year on the mud of Whitby harbour, using a penny knife, or forfeit their lands. Since then, the penance has been faithfully carried out. 
 
 
 
24-26 July 2020 - Whitby Steampunk Weekend 
 
 
 
15-17 August 2020 - Whitby Regatta 
 
The Whitby Regatta on the 15th, 16th and 17th August2020  presents a full weekend of entertainment, embracing yacht racing, rowing races and various free forms of entertainment as published in the official programme, finishing with a prize presentation and spectacular firework display. 
 
Over one hundred and seventy years of aquatic competition and entertainment. The Whitby Regatta is probably the oldest sea Regatta on the northeast coast and has drawn large crowds into Whitby over the years. 
 
 
 
22-28 August 2020 - Whitby Folk Week 
 
A seven day celebration of the traditional music, dance and song of the British Isles. 
 
Boasting over 600 events from workshops, concerts, singarounds, dances, sessions, and street entertainment to the extensive 'fringe' events that spontaneously erupt, Folk Week is a funfilled festival for lovers of real music 
 
 
 
11-13 September 2020 - Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage 
 
Staithes has a long and celebrated history of art from the 19th century Staithes Group of Artists to the present day. 
 
The villagers of Staithes will open their cottage doors to the public as temporary galleries for a selling exhibition of work by resident and visiting artists. Last year we hosted 130 artists in 87 venues. Work included painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, jewellery and crafts. 
 
Visitors will be able to walk the maze of lanes visiting ‘galleries’ as well as taking part in a programme of guided walks, workshops, talks and film shows. Heritage too plays an important part in the life of the village and will be celebrated in events and exhibitions throughout the weekend. There will be a vibrant programme of music ranging from street buskers to concerts. 
 
Food and drink will be provided by the pubs and cafes in the village. Please support them, they are the life blood of the village. The regular cafes will be supported by a number of pop up tea rooms and other food offerings in locations across the village. 
 
As we fill the programme we will post details on the website and our Facebook page. For a flavour of the Festival this short videos covers our first Festival in 2012.
