Easter Weekend in Whitby is rather late this year, Good Friday is on the 18th of April which gives the weather a chance to warm up after the inclement weather we have been having this week, from the lovely sunshine to the dreaded Ha!
There are some events happening on the Easter Weekend in Whitby which are worthy of note such as the Easter National Scooter Rally which will be predominately held at the Whitby Spa Pavilion complex and will see hundreds of scooters descend on the town, a real buzz for the scooter aficionados. The event is held over three days with two nights of music entertainment on the Saturday and Sunday evenings with live bands. There is a huge indoor parts fair and custom show held on Saturday daytime and on Sunday at midday there is Red Eds Sunday ride out to Heartbeat country departing from the Whalebones.
On Good Friday there is an Easter Fair held at the Whitby Town’s Turnbull Ground to help raise money for children with cancer. A very worth cause indeed. It commences at 10.00 am onwards with egg painting, crafts, cakes, tombola, a plant stall and face painting.
Slightly before Easter, on Thursday, 17th April there is Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy showing at the Whitby Spa Complex.
At the Town’s Market Square on both Saturday and Sunday from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm there is the Whitby Market.
Live music is at the Rifle Club on Easter Saturday with ‘The Pier and George Husband’, also live music is at The Resolution with ‘Unit 3 Playing Live’.
The Station Inn has live entertainment over the three nights of the Easter Weekend in Whitby, playing on Friday is Biz Benton, Saturday is The Sugarlicks and on the Sunday evening is the very popular local Carl Robinson.
The Easter weekend will also be the opening of the new Park and Ride System with many parking meters in situ ready and waiting for the grand unveiling. Hopefully the new car parking facilities will be ready in time!
