Board and Lodgings

Although the Whitby Folk Week office can deal with most of your queries regarding the Festival, including details of our own temporary campsite, if you require accommodation in Bed & Breakfast, Hotels, Pubs or Self Catering (as rare as 'free lunches') you will need to book in advance; please visit


The Festival sets up a temporary campsite each year for festival season ticket holders. It is a basic site on a school playing field, but water, showers and toilet facilities are available.
