They’ve goth to have it: Whitby goes back to black for Goth Weekend festival
Last weekend, thousands of goths and steampunks descended on the seaside town of Whitby for the Whitby Goth Weekend. Now in its 19th year, the festival began life as a gathering of like-minded goths who met through NME magazine. The North Yorkshire town was chosen because of its famously vampirian link with Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Judging from some of the photographs, it really was a case of anything goes. Women sported corsets and plenty of hair dye, while the men displayed a penchant for top hats and slightly scary face masks.
Fortunately for all those attending, the weather was suitably gloomy with the sun failing to make much of an appearance. It’s what they would have wanted.
