Whitby Goth Weekend
The Whitby Goth Weekend is now so popular that it runs
twice a year and includes events throughout the week as well! These
weekends are brilliant events and are well placed in Whitby
with its gothic abbey and Dracula links.
The festival is organised by Jo Hampshire
and is one of the most popular gothic events in the world. Most
events are held in the Spa Pavilion as well as the Metropole
Hotel on West Cliff. Other venues include the Resolution
Hotel on Skinner Street and the Walrus and Carpenter
tea rooms on Church Street.
Popular pubs with the goth community
include the New Angel Inn and the Elsinore.
The events always sell-out and this is good news for the town's
business community. It's also a great event to meet like-minded Goths.
The November 2011 event will run from 4th to 6th November. Bands include:
The Mists of Avalon
The Last Dance
The Dark Shadows
The Death Notes
The official Whitby
Goth Weekend website has full information about the events

history of the festival, showing pictures and information from previous
