The biannual Whitby Goth Weekend brings thousands of Goths, Punks, Steampunks, Emos, Bikers and Metallers to town to celebrate Whitby's Dracula connections, with music, events and ever popular Bizarre Bazaar Goth Market. Dacre Stoker, writer of dracula The Un-Dead, and nephew of Bram Stoker is making an appearance too, Stoker on Stoker (22-23 April).
What is the Whitby Goth Weekend?
The Whitby Goth Weekend (WGW) was founded in 1994 by Jo Hampshire of Top Mum Promotions and has grown to become one of the world's premier Goth events. Taking place in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK, the WGW's official line is to provide musical entertainment with bands and DJs, although the culture of the WGW has far outgrown that simple agenda. Whitby Goth Weekend now has something for everyone with an interest in goth and all things alternative. It's a celebration of the non-conformity, diversity and freedom of expression the scene embodies. Thousands of Goths and alternatives of all ages and from all walks of life head to the town for an amazing long weekend. Whether they spend the nights dancing or drinking, the days shopping in the various 'Bizarre Bazaar' locations, or just wandering around town in their finery, it's a weekend they never forget!
