We shall be opening a virtual bazaar – with a range of products from our fantastic independent traders – over the course of our April dates.
Please, if you can, have a browse and support small businesses from a distance in the face of the Covid-19 crisis.

Our inbox has been inundated with requests for info and updates since the Government conference on 20th March.

Sadly 5:30 on a Friday is not a good time for the government to give us information and meant that we were unable to have any real conversations with our venues and staff over Saturday and Sunday.

With pubs, restaurants and leisure centres now closed, our venues will not be open over April’s WGW dates. Before this latest advice we were running off of announcements that permitted us to operate due to the intimate nature of our venues and events – this, naturally, is no longer the case.

Beyond this, after viewing scenes from the coast this weekend, we encourage people to PLEASE follow Government guidelines and self isolate.

Do not fill small seaside resorts like Whitby no matter how much you love the beautiful town. It is not safe, and with such a small population, could prove to have horrific effects.

Please be sensible, contact your accommodation and cancel if you can. We’ll see you all in October.
