Whitby Folk Week 2024 will take place 17th to 23rd August 2024

A Season ticket gives you entry to all Folk Week events – providing there is room in the venue when you arrive. There will always be some ‘House Full’ signs and the only answer is to get there early.


Please retain a copy of your online purchase receipt to exchange for your ticket when you arrive in Whitby – see here for further information. If you have any further queries please email us at

Some events are restricted to Season/Day ticket-holders (marked in the programme). At all others you can pay at the door.

If you don’t have a season ticket but want to go to several events in one day, it will almost always work out a lot cheaper (and easier) to buy a Day ticket that will get you into all events that day (providing there’s room, of course).

Although Season and Day tickets can be purchased at any time, see prices below, we do not sell individual event tickets in advance. These may be bought at the door of events after Season Ticket-holders have been admitted, usually in good time for the start, but we may ask you to wait a few minutes at some of the more popular events.


The festival campsite will be based at Airy Hill School, Waterstead Lane, Whitby, YO21 1PZ. Unfortunately pets are not allowed. The campsite is primarily for week long season ticket holders, but there may be space to accommodate weekend and day ticket holders buying a minimum of two consecutive day tickets – please make enquiries via prior to booking.

Please Note: As camping bookings for Caravans, Campervans and Motorhomes are proving very popular this year, if we reach capacity these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.


Children aged 11 and under are admitted free to main events when accompanied by an Adult Ticket holder. However, we do charge a nominal amount for Children’s events to cover the cost of materials.

Junior tickets

Junior tickets can be purchased for young people between the age or 12 and 18 years inclusive.

Student tickets

Students can purchase their ticket at the reduced rate (as per senior rate) as long as they can provide proof of full time education when collecting their tickets.
