Twice a year the town of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast of England is inundated, not just by Goths, but all sorts of people who love to dress up in amazing costumes. It is an ideal opportunity for transgendered persons to dress as they wish and be accepted by all: the goths, the locals, and all the visitors who come to witness the spectacle. Everyone is so friendly. Martine has organised a Rose's group for the Spring Goth Weekends every April since 2011 (except last year).
Rose's@WGW: Thursday 23rd- Monday 27th April (4 nights) 2020
Please note that there will not be the split dates that resulted in reduces attendances in 2019 as it seems 'Tomorrow's Ghosts', the new promoters of the rock events at the Spa Pavilion and the original organisers, Jo Hampshire, will be using the same dates in 2020.
If you are interested, please register ASAP as there is always a huge demand for accommodation during the WGWs and most places usually book up very quickly.
Self-catering apartments have been chosen because compared with a similarly priced guest house or hotel room, an apartment provides much more spacious private accommodation with the option of self catering. We use Discovery Accommodation because they have a large number of apartments available in one building (with more in close proximity) in the heart of Whitby, and because of the additional facilities they offer exclusively to their guests, including:
- Leisure facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna available to all guests for £3 a session.
- Breakfast and other meals available in the main office coffee lounge.
- Function room available.
- Many apartments have wheel-chair access for the disabled.
- Free WiFi
All the flats come with a fully equipped kitchen area, lounge/dining room, and bath/shower room. They all have Freeview TV, DVD (full DVD library in office) and music system.
The flats booked initially will all be in the same building (this will not be possible for any flats added at a later date).
Length of Stay
We recommend 4 nights minimum from the Thursday to Sunday, leaving Monday and all the prices we quote here assume these 4 nights. It may be possible to stay more or less nights (minimum 2) but this might only be practical if everyone in an apartment does the same (please ask for quote).
