Musicport - a ‘window on the world’

Over the weekend of October 5-7 at Whitby Spa we were treated to a feast of music from all over the world - Indian, African, Palestinian, Papua New Guinea etc - bands, groups, and single performers playing many varied and unusual instruments alongside world class UK and European artists.

We would like to thank Jim and Sue McCloughlin and all the staff for putting on this wonderful weekend year after year.

Make a note in your diary for next October or visit You can come for half a day or the full weekend and you will hear great sounds, rhythms. Meet the artists, participate in workshops and learn about other cultures, an ideal experience for children. A special treat this year was the up and coming young UK band MAIA who finished off the festival in cracking style.

Musicport needs your support at this time of reduced funding for the arts. It’s a “window on the world” and is on our doorstep.

Well done to you all and thanks again.
