Saturday 4th December is when Whitby Krampus Run returns for its 7th time to the streets of Whitby. It’s time to unshackle the chains and Release The Beast.
A noisy and colourful costumed parade with fun activities during the day raising funds for Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary and in the evening for St. Catherine’s hospice.
The parade takes place at 3.30pm from the Bandstand to the Whalebones with a rousing performance from Tengu Taiko Drummers and a very special fire dance by Mister Fox follows at 5.30pm at Dock End near the Whitby Winter Festival Ice Rink.
The evening sees a full program of entertainment at the Metropole Lounge and Ballroom with Elvus Krampley, Westenra, Auger and headliners Inkubus Sukkubus.
On the Sunday 5th December will be the inaugural Wyld Hunt as magical beasts make their way to the Abbey Headland for a very special Horse race.
