Diary Dates: 2021 Robin Hood's Bay Folk Weekend:

June 11th 12th & 13th 2021


COVID19:  We now have no alternative but to postpone the 2020 Bay Folk Weekend until 2021. We are endeavouring to contact all involved to let them know that the event is on ice for 12 months.

We hope that the concert performers, venues, cafe dash participants and supporters understand the reasons for this, and will be able to take part in the re-scheduled event on 11/12/13 June 2021.
