Over the years the festival has changed as it has gained popularity transforming from a small local festival to become part of whitby. The festival has come to symbolise a safe weekend for Goth's all over England. Whitby has roots planted within literature being the location in Bram Stoker's Dracula. Drawing upon this created the idea for Whitby Goth Weekend in 1994 allowing people to experience the town that capture Stoker's imagination to create the infamous characters in his novel and gives goths a safe place to really celebrate their chosen style.
