Whitby Folk Festival
The Whitby Folk Festival takes place for seven consecutive days during the month of August. It is a collection of many different small events that involve singing and dancing in pubs, in the street and in the parks. There are over 600 different individual events that take place during this week long festival. Day tickets can be purchased that allow entry into all of the different events or tickets that are valid for the full week can also be bought. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are cheaper the earlier that they are bought. For example a full adult week ticket for the 2008 festival costs £120 if purchased before 1st May 2008, this rises to £128 if bought after the 1st August. Prices for day tickets also vary depending on when purchased and these are also more expensive for Saturday and Sundays.
Lincoln Cathedral is in the centre of Lincoln in the middle of Lincolnshire in the East of England and is one of the biggest cathedrals in Britain. Its origins can be traced back to the century before the Battle of Hastings. The West Front incorporates the surviving part of the first Romanesque Cathedral dating from 1072. The Cathedral collapsed in 1185 when an earthquake shook the building and reconstruction was completed in 1310. Most of the present day Cathedral dates from the 13th century when the Cathedral was re-built in the new gothic style. The carved screen was added by later generations along with the Wren Library and the Duncan Grant frescoes. It can be reached by road via the A1 and A46 east from Newark, the A57 east from Sheffield, the A15 south from M180 Scunthorpe and Hull, the A15 north from Sleaford and the A46 south from Grimsby. Parking around the Cathedral is limited to short stay on the south side in Minster Yard or local car parks. There is an information desk that provides information concerning the history, architecture and daily life of the Cathedral. The Cathedral is open during the following times: Summer Weekdays 7.15 am - 8.00 pm (Saturdays and Sundays 7.15 am - 6.00 pm); Winter Weekdays and Saturdays 7.15 am - 6.00 pm (Sundays 7.15 am - 5.00 pm).
