Whitby Christmas Festival Cancelled

Published by Karen Liu at 11:13am 29th April 2020.

Whitby's Christmas Festival has been cancelled.

The announcement has come from Whitby Town Council who say they have made the "very difficult decision due to the present conditions caused by COVID-19".

The event was due to take place between 13th – 15th November 2020.

The authority said:

"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."

Very disappointing news which does not exactly lift the morale of the public at this difficult time.
