Welcome to Whitby is a volunteer organisation working hard to contribute to the friendly and warm welcome for visitors to Whitby, whilst also helping and supporting the hospitality sector within the town.
The team are currently working on the foundation for the first Whitby Winter Festival, beginning in November 2021. We hope to deliver a range of new events and also to help and support existing events during the winter months.
Here are some examples of the team's work so far
We brightened up Christmas 2020, despite the horrible situation with covid by staging Whitby;s Dazzling Christmas 2020. Watch this space for a bigger and better 2021!
The team were moved to help the NHS following the harrowing scenes on our TV screens and so we delivered The Whitby Thank You Weekend in October 2020.
Whitby wanted to thank our NHS front line workers in the best way we knew by proving a free weekend with free meals and drinks.
