What's On in Whitby 
 
 
Dates for your diary : 
 
 
15-17 August 2020 - Whitby Regatta   POSTPONED to 21st to 23rd August 2021  
 
It is with a great sense of sadness that, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone Whitby Regatta 2020 to the weekend of 21st to 23rd August 2021. This will be the first time since the Second World War that the Regatta will not be held.   
 
We have reached this difficult but unavoidable conclusion for public health and safety reasons and embraces all the activities normally held on the West Cliff and East Pier including the Market, Funfair, Fireworks, Parade, Miss Regatta, Baby Show, Glamorous Grandmother and all other competitions usually held on Crescent Gardens and SPA Green.  
 
It may, however,  still be possible to run the rowing races, dependent on Government and public health policy in respect of ‘mass gatherings’ and “social distancing”, and for this reason the rowing season would be extended into September.  
 
Subject to future Government notification of any relaxations and when life returns closer to normality  it is intended, if viable, to organise a Community Event for the town with other organisations.  
 
Meanwhile, I am sure you will wish to join us in our sympathies for all those grieving and suffering as a result of COVID-19. 
 
We offer heartfelt thanks to our wonderful NHS staff, key workers, supermarket staff and volunteers for all their selfless dedication. 
 
 
 
22-28 August 2020 - Whitby Folk Week POSTPONED to 21st to 27th August 2021 
 
It is with a heavy heart that, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone Whitby Folk Week 2020 to 21st to 27th August 2021. As you can imagine, this has not been an easy decision, but we felt that the health and safety of everyone involved, ticket holders, volunteer stewards, artists across music, song, dance, and storytelling, and of course our lovely Whitby venues, had to take priority. 
 
We are currently in the process of contacting everyone involved, and all season ticket holders, so please bear with us as this may take some time. 
 
We love Whitby Folk Week and hope that, with your support, we’ll be back bigger and better next year. With that in mind, we are asking season ticket holders, if at all possible, to roll their tickets over to 2021. If you haven’t as yet bought a ticket, and want to help keep the festival alive, the 2021 ticket form is now online, and we are holding the 2020 early bird price in place until 30th April 2021. 
 
We look forward to seeing everyone in a brighter future, but until then, please take care and stay safe. 
 
With our very best wishes, 
Barry E, Sue, Melanie, Andy & Barry M 
 
 
 
11-13 September 2020 - Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage CANCELLED 
  
We are very disappointed to have to announce our decision to cancel Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage 2020 which was due to take place on 12th/13thSeptember. 
 
This is in line with current government advice to avoid unnecessary travel and large gatherings to limit the spread of the Corona Virus. While we are aware that by September the contagion may have peaked and the restrictions may be relaxed, this is far from certain. Even if it were the case, we feel the economic impact of the pandemic will continue for some considerable time to come and this in turn will adversely affect our Festival. 
 
We are taking this decision now to avoid incurring any costs in advance of this year’s Festival so that artists and caterers who have registered will be able to receive a full refund of their fee. Our Treasurer is aiming to make repayments back through the Stripe registration system, directly to everyone who has registered with the Festival already. He is looking into this urgently, but, if it is not possible, we will contact those artists with alternative arrangements. 
 
We hope artists, heritage enthusiasts, devotees of Staithes and all our visitors who were looking forward to another hugely enjoyable Festival this year will understand the reasons for this … and join us next year to make SFAH 2021 a celebration to remember!
