Whitby Regatta
Aug 21 – Aug 23 all-day
Whitby Regatta @ Various Locations | Whitby | England | United Kingdom

Come and join us for three full days of entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including yacht racing, rowing races, fun fair and various free forms of entertainment around the town of Whitby, finishing with a prize presentation and spectacular firework display!

History of the Event

This event is one of the oldest sea Regattas in England drawing large crowds into the town. It all started in early the 1800s with fishermen competing against each other in their fishing smacks and salmon cobbles. Gradually yacht racing formed the greater part of the Regatta and was recorded in 1847 with “he Whitby Challenge Cup”.
Due to the high cost of building these large yachts they have slowly disappeared from the scene and in about 1872 competitive rowing came to the forefront. Today one of the main attractions of the Regatta are the three major rowing clubs in the region – the Jet Works Amateur Rowing Club, the Friendship Amateur Rowing Club and Whitby Fisherman’s Amateur Rowing Club.

The most coveted trophy rowed for today is the Wilson Cup, presented by the late Alderman JET Wilson J.P – C.C. of West Hartlepool in 1901. 1929 saw the first fancy dress and decorated carts, which form the present day’s regatta and carnival.

One hundred and seventy four years of aquatic competition and entertainment. The Whitby Regatta is probably the oldest sea Regatta on the northeast coast and has drawn large crowds into Whitby over the years.

Burton Agnes Snowdrops in the Woodland
Jan 30 – Feb 28 all-day
Burton Agnes Snowdrops in the Woodland @ Burton Agnes Hall | Driffield | England | United Kingdom

This winter, let the Snowdrop Spectacular at Burton Agnes Hall bring you out of hibernation

Wrap up warmly this winter and enjoy the breathtaking display of snowdrops here.

Every February, thousands of hardy snowdrops push through the cold winter ground to create a magnificent ‘white carpet’ across the woodland floor here at Burton Agnes. Walking peacefully among these makes a truly memorable day out at the end of the long winter. The beautiful little flowers grow in numbers each year and are such a welcome sight. This biblical symbol of hope reminds us that winter eventually gives way to spring, and announces the new season.

Galanthophiles may also like to buy some Burton Agnes-propagated snowdrops ‘in the green’, which is the best way of building a collection.

Please note that in gale force winds the woodland walk will close. Please phone the office on 01262 490 324 if you would like advice.

The woodland is open for walking among the snowdrops from the 30th January to 28th February 2021, from 11am to 4pm daily.
