Whitby Goth Weekend Photographs – Autumn 2014
With fantatsic weather here at Whitby The half term holidays have been a cracking week. The town started to fill up from last weekend and has slowly got busier all week.
Wednesday saw the start of The Whitby Abbey Illumination Event whcih runs untill Saturday night. Friday of course was Halloween, and Goth weekend stretches across the full weekend, with many Goths staying in Whitby well into next week.
These are a few of our photographs from The Week in Whitby. I will keep posting as and when I have the time. Please feel free to share this page on Facebook. I would also love to hear your feedback either in the comments section below or over on our Facebook Group here.
Whitby Goth Weekend Photographs – April 2014
After posting some of my images to Facebook and reading some of the most bigoted and disrespectful comments Ive ever had the displeasure to read, I have decided to dedicate all Goth related pages and photographs on this website to the memory of the the late Sophie Lancaster. I urge all our readers to show respect and tolerance to all people we meet regardless of their looks or chosen attire. You can read about Sophie here.
