Whitby festival




It is Goth weekend in Whitby, fellow blogger Paula is there in all her finery and we are missing it, the cottage is of course taken for the festival right through till next weekend, so we cannot stop there.  The Abbey is lit up beautifully with blue lights according to the photos I have seen on the net.  And I can just see the busy throng of weird outfits jostling around in the  streets.  People pose at corners, children grimace with evil delight, even the town dignitaries take to the stage with solemn attire.
Beautiful, glamorous, hideous, funny, sexy, the sheer joy of dressing up in weird clothes is captured here in this video, of Paulas. Long live Dracula prowling the streets of Whitby....

  1. Your header is wonderful. I have once been when the Goths were all over. Fascinating.

    1. Hi, The boats always rush through when the bridge opens, the people pile up behind the barriers, a daily excitement.

  2. Hi Thelma, We are still in Whitby today but are heading home tomorrow. Lots of fun this weekend, but cold and wet on Saturday and on Sunday sun and windy. Thank you for share my last slideshow from April.

  3. I love your new header too. I think I'm too staid for a Goth festival!

  4. Hi Em, we occasionally toy with the idea of costumes but the cottage is probably always booked on Goth week ends....
