Whitby Goth Weekend 2019: All the best photos from the event

Thousands of goths descended on Whitby for the first goth weekend of 2019.

It was the traditional Whitby Goth Weekend - an event which has come under threat after the creation of a rival festival called Tomorrow's Ghosts, which will take place in former WGW venue Whitby Pavilion just two weeks later. Both events will also have competing autumn dates - meaning Whitby will host four goth culture festivals in 2019 alone.
