Whitby Country Music Weekend

Warm atmosphere and friendly company. Food served in café a little bit limited, not much imagination here.

Another cracking performance by Chris Wales as the imposter aunt and as ever we had an enjoyable night at the theatre. Ian Dobson was directing this production and was very much missed on the stage. The cost of a ticket at under £10 makes it great value for money but the bar does not give the same great value with... More

I was here for the WGW gigs and a council run facility that knew the venue had sold out should ensure they have enough staff to serve at the bars and not run out of mixers or drinks. No coke on Saturday night nor dark/spiced rum. Staff, however, were courteous and apologetic under the circumstances. Door staff were great, then... More

Lots of stalls selling everything for all the different genre that attend the Goth Weekend - Then at night plays host to bands, not to be missed. Shame about the parking, but you cant have everything

Great event for everyone in a lovely setting overlooking the sea. On site café and good clean facilities. Only problem can be access due to one lift if the event that you are attending is held downstairs, prefer the Northern Lights Suite

The event was well organised and the venue was a great place to hold it. There was cafe that had a good choice of food & snacks and the tea & coffee was great. The staff were very helpful and polite.

Go and watch the plays they are always a delight. There are a couple of theatre groups but we always make an effort to attend the splendid productions. The latest being Theft by Eric Chappell and although Ian stumbled a couple of times it just didn't matter as he is an excellent actor and we enjoy his performances. Small and... More
