Already reviewed in depth here Whitby Goth Weekend is the premier Goth festival in the UK.

Mel Butler is one of the key photographers on the scene (check her work out here). Here is a selection of some of her brilliant images of the event. Stunning images that really capture the vibrancy of the vent and its bands.

Dripping with drama and Victoriana you could not get a better town for a goth-tinged event than Whitby with its olde worlde cobbles and mysterious back alleys. It’s the perfect backdrop for those dressed to thrill kill as they walk its dark charmed streets. Like all great festivals WGW is a perfect microcosm of a culture and a reaffirmation of gothic vows and energy to return back glowing with a spectral darkness back to the so-called real world on the Monday.
