01. WGW? Whitby Goth Weekend®? What`s all that then?
The Whitby Goth Weekend® (often abbreviated to WGW®) is a biannual festival held in the North Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby. It began in 1994 as a meeting of friends organised by Jo Hampshire of Top Mum Promotions, and has grown to become the UK`s premiere Gothic/Alternative festival attracting over 7000 people to the town twice a year.

02. Sounds good! I`d like to book a stall to trade at the event, how do I do that?
Please contact for more information. We accept payment by PayPal.

03. Can I get my business added to the directory?
Anyone booking trade space at one of our events will be automatically added to it.

04. I`ve traded with you before but I`m not on there. Can you add me please?
Oops! Sorry, send us your details through and we`ll get you added.

05. I`ve traded with you before and I`m already listed, but my details have changed or are just plain wrong! Can I get them amended please?
Of course, and apologies for the mistake! It would also help us greatly if everyone already listed could take a few moments to check over their details. While every care has been taken to ensure accuracy there is always the possibility of small errors sneaking their way in. The information we have listed has been taken directly from the traders` own websites, and if any ambiguity or uncertainty was encountered we have chosen to err on the side of caution. For example, if a trader has listed their payment methods as `All major credit cards, Paypal and Cheque` we will have only listed Paypal and Cheque, as opinions of what cards are considered major may differ.

Once you have checked over your details please email though any amendments or additions to and we`ll get it sorted asap.

06. I`ve traded with you before and I`m already listed, but I`d prefer not to be on there. Could you remove me please?
No problem, just email us to let us know and we`ll remove you.

07. I was at the event and I saw a trader there that isn`t in the directory, why aren`t they listed?
Could be for a number of reasons, they may not have a website, they may have sadly ceased trading or we may have just missed them off by accident! Oops! Whichever it may be, please email us to let us know and we`ll look into it and see about getting them listed.

08. The website`s really handy, but can you add... (insert your suggestion here)
If you have any ideas for the website then by all means please let us know. If it`s something we can do that`s going to improve the site then we`ll certainly do our best to update it.

09. I noticed you have banners at the top of the page, can I advertise my business there?
Yes you can. Please get in touch with us to discuss the options that are available.

10. Do you have a way of keeping people updated about changes or new traders being added?
Yes, we list the traders at each event on our main WGW website.
