A downloadable songbook will be available from the Musicport website and Facebook page so that participants can practice in advance. Free entry event.
• A blackboard stage where audience members can claim their 15 minutes of fame alongside specially invited open mic sessions from around Yorkshire.

With funding from Arts Council England & the European Union the festival which is run by an a largely volunteer crew hopes to build on its fourteen years experience of bringing the highest quality cultural experience to the Yorkshire coast in friendly fun-packed weekend that will end the 2013 festival season on a really high note (and with no need to worry about the weather).
