The Whitby Gazette has teamed up with the Whitby Rising festival to offer readers the chance to win tickets.

The hotly anticipated music event, organised by singer Alistair Griffin, is now just weeks away and the festival preparation is gathering pace, with last week’s Battle of the Bands competition won by Palma Louca who will be opening on the main stage.

Alistair Griffin meets staff at Sainsburys in Whitby.

Tickets are available to buy now from: and also from Abigails shop on Flowergate.

Meanwhile, the festival organisers have teamed up with Sainsbury’s in a bid to boost funds for this year’s charitable cause: Wetwheels Yorkshire.

The store on Stainsacre Lane is donating sandwiches, crisps and bottled water to the hard working teams at the festival to keep them going while they check tickets, man the car park and serve the Prosecco and Whitby Rising Ale!

Paula Noble, spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said: “We always try and support local causes and we’re happy to help in any way we can. Wetwheels is a fantastic charity.”

Wetwheels Yorkshire will provide disabled people with the chance to access the sea in a fun, safe, stimulating and rewarding way using specially modified, fully accessible powerboats.
