Elephant at the Castle Festival
Set in the beautiful coastal grounds of historic Mulgrave Castle and with the wonderful town of Whitby and its famous abbey ruins as the backdrop “Elephant at the Castle” will be a unique 3 day family friendly event with camping.
For 20 years Musicport has been Britains best indoor international music festival, and at Elephant at the Castle we aim to bring together the friendly atmosphere and dizzying musical variety that makes the annual October event so special, along with presenting a dedicated “Normafest” stage celebrating the great Norma Waterson’s 80 years on this planet.
Throughout the weekend there will be performances by Norma, her husband Martin Carthy and daughter Eliza along with all the many musical members of the extended Waterson/Carthy family, their friends and musical associates and many special guests.
We expect to be making initial artists announcements and putting special priced “early bird” tickets on sale in December 2018. Please like our “Elephant at the Castle” Facebook page and check in regularly to this website for full and up to date information.
