Image for Whitby Folk Week

Whitby Folk Week is one of those festivals which offers an incredible feel of community and inclusiveness. Folk Week patrons, Melrose Quartet, have described the feeling of arriving for Folk Week as ‘like coming home’.

The old coastal town of Whitby is a magnificent backdrop for an event that includes countless artists,dance teams, workshops, storytelling, a craft fair, ceilidhs with callers and plenty more. The whole family are guaranteed a magical week of music, beaches, stories and dancing.

Camping is a great way to get into the spirit of Whitby Folk Week, and enjoy impromptu music sessions with fellow campers. Book your place on the official campsite by adding a camping spot to your season ticket price.

Season tickets give access to all the events throughout the week (unless venues are full, so arrive early to avoid disappointment). Day tickets are available, or you can pay on the door (selected events only). Reduced rates are available to student union members.

Book your place today to be part of this well-loved celebration of our traditional music.
