Goth weekend

I’ve just booked a October half term and will be there for the goth weekend- something we have always wanted to do! And are after some advice.

We are going with young children, one of whom is a little mini goth herself and us so excited to see everyone dressed up! What is worth doing with them? How do we see what is on and what do we need tickets for?

I’ve looked on the website but there doesn’t seem to be much on there yet.

Events normally organised for Whitby Pavillion aren't happening this year.Organisers and venue are being very tight lipped as to the reason.This may explain why you have managed to get booked in !Don't worry though there will still be plenty going on.The Goths will still be there in their droves. They're a friendly good natured lot and willing to stop for a chat or a photo at the drop of a top hat.

As Adrian D says much of the weekend’s popularity is that goths and cyberpunks are able to strut their stuff without issue around the town. A lot of people like a wander up to St Mary’s, which has a beautiful graveyard overlooking the harbour and sea.

The markets are definitely worth a visit, as is the website: www.whitbygothweekend.co.uk- this should be updated soon in regards to the itinerary for the weekend. When you get there, locate where the information kiosk is that is run by the event, as they are usually brilliant at giving advice. Don't worry. the weekend is really child and family friendly, but one thing I can definitely advise... the Abbey, and try a Ghost walk. My daughter loved it!

Have a good time and maybe see you there!
