Whitby Goth Weekend Cancelled

Whitby Goth Weekend Cancelled

Published by Matthew Pells at 2:38pm 23rd March 2020.

The Whitby Goth Weekend wont be taking place in April but hopes to return in October.

Organisers of the festival, due to take place from April 24th-26th have posted on social media that the event has been called off.

"With pubs, restaurants and leisure centres now closed, our venues will not be open over April's WGW dates. Before this latest advice we were running off of announcements that permitted us to operate due to the intimate nature of our venues and events - this, naturally, is no longer the case.

Beyond this, after viewing scenes from the coast this weekend, we encourage people to PLEASE follow Government guidelines and self isolate.

Do not fill small seaside resorts like Whitby no matter how much you love the beautiful town. It is not safe, and with such a small population, could prove to have horrific effects.

Please be sensible, contact your accommodation and cancel if you can. We'll see you all in October."

The team behind the event say they plan to organise a "Virtual Bazaar" over the course of the  April dates to try and support some of the small businesses who would have taken part in the festival from a distance.
