Beverley Folk Festival wins REYTA

The best of the region’s tourism industry were celebrated at the Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards on Thursday evening (13th March) at The Spa in Bridlington to which more than 400 people attended.

Prizes were awarded to over 13 organisations from the region in the food, accommodation, attraction and event sections.  The Beverley Folk Festival was selected out of a record number of entrants to be one of the 71 finalists in the awards.   It was up against some tough competition with 6 other finalists in its category of Remarkable Tourism Event, and emerged joint winner alongside Hull’s Freedom Festival.

The Festival moved to Beverley Racecourse last year, and with just 12 weeks to go, all those involved in it are working hard to make this year’s event ( 20 – 22 June) the best yet.  With headliners such as Billy Bragg, Chas and Dave, and Michael Morpurgo, on the bill, it looks set to be a weekend of great entertainment.
