Whitby Jet Heritage Centre
This is the last remaining authentic Whitby Jet Workshop. It was discovered by accident in the attic of a nearby building and moved to its current premises where it was fully restored.
It is known that this original workshop dated from 1867 and at that time it would have been one of several local workshops producing hand crafted ornaments and jewellery from Whitby Jet.
Whitby Jet is a black gem stone that is found in this area and it has been crafted into jewellery - especially mourning jewelery - for many centuries. The goods produced in this workshop are all produced by hand, using the original wheels and tools. There is a shop adjacent to the workshop where these finished goods can be seen and purchased.
Entry to the workshops is free. It is open daily from 10am until 5pm on Mondays to Saturdays and from 11am until 4pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The long distance walk "The Cleveland Way" passes close to this attraction.
Whitby Gothic Weekend
The Whitby Gothic Weekend takes place twice a year. The first event occurs during April and the second occurs at the end of October/early November. This weekend is a celebration of all things Gothic and many of the events take place in the shadow of Whitby Abbey, which inspired Bram Stoker's book Dracula. During these festivals there are some weird and wonderful dress costumes to be seen. There is music, singing, dancing and arts and crafts events during these weekends.
Various tickets are available which have to be purchased in advance. These are available online from the official Website or from the Tourist Information Centre in Whitby and a few other local retailers. Due to the popularity of these weekends the tickets often sell out several months in advance.
The cost of an adult full weekend ticket for the April festival is £42 whilst a weekend ticket for October 2008 is £38.50.
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.
