OUR 2023 SCHEDULE
WHITBY KRAMPUS RUN VIII
And of course our highlight of the year. Whitby Krampus Run on Saturday 3rd December makes its eighth journey out to punish the wicked on the streets of Whitby followed in the evening by the infamous Krampus Ball.
The next day sees the return of Thee Wyld Hunt with a very special race and expanded competitions. Details will added here and on social media over the weeks so please keep watch for for further information.
Also we are paying visits to other locations and events this year, you can see where and when here
Over Whitby Goth Weekend you will see some of us up at Whitby Brewery for Goth At The Brewery to see Westenra and their curated afternoon of musical entertainment. Members of Whitby Krampus Run will also be out and about town promoting WKR Acht so do come and say Guten Tag. Then on the Sunday at 2.00pm we will be taking the opportunity to debut as a trial run The Whitby Wyrm. This years Krampus parade featured creature which has been created at The Krampus Workshops ( funded by Two Ridings Community Foundation )
You'll find us walking the grounds of Cholmley House just by Whitby Abbey. If you're not familiar with this part of Whitby's lore...
Legend has it that the fire breathing Wyrm, was disturbed during the building of Whitby Abbey, and attempted to destroy it, but was banished to the sea. Every seven years at full moon, he returns to claw at the cliffs and drag the Abbey into the sea.
It's been a great year for us so far with so many invites to appear at other events that we feel a great kinship with. Our next venture out is on the 24th - 25th September to our very good friends' Inkubus Sukkubus event The Tales Of Witchcraft And Wonder, being held at Gloucester Folk Museum.
We will have a space exhibiting some of our artistic creations made over the years as well as art and merchandise for sale.

JOHN BARLEYCORN MUST DIE
Our 'John Barleycorn Must Die' ritual will be returning to Whitby Brewery for the second year on Friday 23rd September.
Recognisably irreverent and respectful of the traditions surrounding the season and the harvesting of the Barley before
it is magically transformed into the ale we all love. There will also be live music from Milo and special guests The Monster Ceilidh Band.
You can watch all the little videos we made for the run up to the event here
