The first Whitby Goth Weekend of 2014 saw thousands of visitors descend on the town as the event approaches its 20th anniversary.
Punk princess Toyah Wilcox and New Model Army were the headline acts at Whitby Pavilion and attracted huge crowds, while a variety of other events were held across Whitby at venues including The Met, The Brunswick Centre and Raw Nightclub.
Hotels guesthouses, shops, pubs and restaurants in the town all enjoyed a bumper period of trading for the second week in succession following on from the Easter National Scooter Rally the previous weekend.
Real Gothic FC were defeated 12-1 by a team of locals in the traditional charity football match at Whitby Town’s Turnbull Ground.
Fans turned out in their hundreds to witness the keenly-contested match, despite the rain, and £1,055 was raised for the Willow Foundation, SOS Children and Cure Rett.
The second goth weekend of the year, in November, is expected to attract even more people to Whitby as the festival celebrates its 20th anniversary.
