whitby folk festival 1965

Post by amwconnor » Mon Sep 17, 2007 4:33 pm

hi,

I have a bit of a strange request for all the origional folk festival visitors.
Just wondering if anyone has a copy of the very first programme that was made for the folk festival or a copy of the picture on the front, or knows of a pub where it hangs?
The reason i ask is that my father was a regular to the first festivals that were held in whitby and appeared on the front cover of the first program dancing with some well known lady.
this is a picture that i have never seen and as i am now a regular to the folk festival myself would love to get a glimps of it.
my dad would have been 17 at the time and used to travel up from leeds to join in the festivities.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.

You could try contacting the organisers. If they don't know, they'll know someone who does, I guess
