Whitby welcomed its first ever Steampunk Weekend to town.

A fabulous array of outfits, combining the old with the new, could be seen in the area.

Live music was held at the pavilion, with performers including: Alice's Night Circus, Victor & The Bully, Professor Elemental and Gurdybird.

A second Steampunk Weekend is planned for late July and the organisers hope to make the event a bi-annual fixture in the Whitby calendar.

See this Friday's Gazette for more pictures and reaction.
