PEOPLE can now snap up tickets for Whitby’s official Gothic Weekend as well as a host of other events online.
Whitby Pavilion has just launched its new website to enable people to view what’s on at the venue, keep up to date with the cinema programme and see special café offers.
The website allows shows to be booked online for fast and effective service, with the site designed to support the active promotion of the venue and its forthcoming events.
Whitby Gothic Weekend (WGW) is one of the Pavilion’s key events and tickets can now be bought online from the new website.
Jo Hampshire, organiser of WGW said: “It’s another step forward in promoting events at the Pavilion. We are working closely together with the team at the Pavilion to make the Autumn Goth Weekend one of the best ever.”
And Jeremy Hartill, executive manager of Whitby Pavilion added: “The new website allows us to reach a really wide and diverse audience which is fantastic. It will offer significant support to our key objective of getting more people to the venue.
“We are delighted to be offering online booking for events and in particular the Goth Festival as it is such an important event for Whitby and the Pavilion.”
The Whitby Pavilion website www.whitbypavilion.co.uk will work as a stand-alone site but will also link to other sites such as the Goth Weekend site to facilitate enquiries and ticket sales.
The Pavilon has also gone digital with both Twitter and Facebook sites too.
They can be found at twitter @whitbypavilion and facebook www.facebook.co.uk/whitbypavilon.
This year’s official Whitby Gothic Weekend takes place over Bonfire Weekend between 4 and 6 November and as always includes a variety of attractions including the Bizaare Bazaar which will see established exhibitors from around the UK showcasing a host of high quality gothic goods.
