Steve_freereeder Posted April 26, 2021 Share Posted April 26, 2021 (edited) Whitby Folk Week, 21st - 28th August 2021, is now cancelled. I've just heard from the organisers who deal with the artists, dance teams, and workshop leaders. Sue Houston writes: After much deliberation, Whitby folk week directors have reluctantly had to make the decision to rollover the festival from this year until August 2022. We have no idea whether social restrictions, such as social distancing, will be fully relaxed by August and we envisage a lot of people descending on the town this summer. We know this will be disappointing news, but I am aware that many of you do have your own reservations. We are mindful of the ongoing need to protect each other, and the town, and to ensure the future of the festival. So - there you have it. Sad but probably the safest option both in terms of health of everyone and minimising the financial risk for the organisers. At the moment the Whitby Folk Week website has not been updated to reflect the cancellation; the decision to cancel has only just been made (26th April).
