Try your hand at anything from Melodeon to Medieval Dance, Banjo to Border, or join the Festival Orchestra. We endeavour to cater for all skill levels and abilities.
Perform your new found skills at the Workshop Showcase in our main venue, the Spa Pavilion.
The young’uns are the future of our festival. Drop them off at the ‘Kids club’ while you go and see a concert or two.
Or see your kids transform a folk tale into a piece of drama at our ‘Children in Performance’ club.
We have something amazing for the young’uns almost all day, every day.
Whitby Folk Week is great fun for youths and teenagers.

During the week, Whitby’s pubs and clubs are jam packed with music sessions and singarounds of all genres.
Whether you’re a beginner Irish fiddle player or a seasoned sea shanty singer, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect session for you.
