Whitby Pavilion plays host to the Tomorrow’s Ghosts Festival on the last weekend of October, Friday 26th – Sunday 28th October 2018 with a single event hanging over until Monday.

There is a large influx of fans coming to Whitby while the Festival is on, and as usual, there is an excellent programme of events from Friday through to Sunday evening.

Absinthe Promotions, as organisers, have decided on making music the main focus with the opportunity for up-and-coming bands to showcase alongside established ones, with the stated aim of covering the whole breadth of goth and alternative music.

Music is the focus but there is much more; film, theatre and the market.
