After being cancelled last year, Whitby Goth Weekend is back and big as ever. Inspired originally by Whitby’s connection to Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, the festival will see people dressing up in incredible outfits. From Steampunk creations to Gothic, people let the creativity loose on this world premiere Goth event.
The Whitby Goth Weekend 2021 event has been confirmed for the Halloween weekend and will see thousands flock to the seaside town to take part and enjoy the weird and wonderful Goth Weekend.
This year the event will be held on the weekend of October 29th to the 31st and is one not to miss, that’s for sure. There will be live music, the Bizarre Bazaar alternative market and a chance for meet and greets with famous gothic authors.
The event is a bi-annual one, which usually takes place in April and October. You can find the famous bazaar, which has more than 100 stalls, in the Whitby Leisure Centre and the Brunswick centre.
There will also be rock and metal club nights at the Abbey Wharf, in Market Place, over the Halloween weekend, and also a chance to meet acclaimed author Alistair Lavers, creator of The Whitborough Novels.
This year’s events are not tickets and the markets are open for all visitors with free entry to the Abbey Wharf rock nights also. Whilst in Whitby, why not visit some of the most haunted locations it has to offer? We couldn’t think of a more fitting weekend to take a trip to some of these scary locations.
