Cancellation of Xmas Festival 2020

WHITBY CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL: 13th – 15th November 2020

Unfortunately, Whitby Town Council have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year's Christmas Festival due to the present conditions caused by Covid-19. The effect of this current situation means that the necessary planning and fund raising which is vital for our festival will not be possible for this year.

This decision has not been made lightly, however the government's advice that a degree of social distancing will be continued to the end of the year, as well as the possible health risks to residents and visitors, all have to be taken seriously and considered.

We realise this outcome will disappoint many people, but we do hope that you will understand why this difficult decision had to be made.

We hope that everyone keeps safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all again at next year's Christmas Festival.
