Taking over wonderful Whitby for one weekend, this year’s festival will feature walks, talks, and tons of family-friendly events and entertainment. Back by popular demand, The Rock Showman, and his team of Let’s Circus performers will be taking the party to Dock End on Saturday and in Pannett Park on Sunday. Visitors are invited to bring their own fossils to test the experts, work with palaeo-artists to bring ancient creatures back to life, and get their favourite rocks cut and polished to take home!

The 2023 Yorkshire Fossil Festival is organised by Whitby Museum, Let’s Circus and supported by Scarborough Museums and Galleries, with funding from Art Council England, The Palaeontological Association and the Yorkshire Geological Society.
