We started back in 2000 with a one-off festival for the Millennium, and that one-off provided the impetus that has kept us going ever since – so 2019 brings our 20th Musicport and a great celebration of the 20 years!

Our décor transforms Whitby Pavilion into a great venue, really intimate and with a special atmosphere. You can get so close to these brilliant musicians, sometimes you have to pinch yourself to realise they really are here, on our doorstep, close enough to touch!

Then there’s our concerts and open mics – more opportunities to enjoy great music from all sorts of performers, some born and bred in Whitby, others from much further afield – whether it’s Sheffield, Scotland or the Sahara – always quality, often emotional and always memorable. Some stunning memories have been created at our house concerts, most recently at the Old Reading Room in Goathland – around 25 people, great food, great company and great music!
