Something I've been looking forward to for a while is my holiday to Whitby with Sian. Now we were of course going to the Whitby Goth Weekend, and depending on the line up might have attended the main festivities at the Spa.
Now on Tuesday night I read a post of whitby
that the "Official" events might be moved to the next weekend. Checking the WGW site yields no info, (but WGW HQ had been on and posting to slag off smogo
's idea for "Judder on Sea"), it does however mean that as usuall you have to get news from less 'official sources'.
It turns out that the move is part of a domestic dispute between the main promoter and her ex-husband, and the promoter is talking about moving the entire weekend to get one over the ex... See this entry
's journal for dispute from a trader's perspective. (The latest twist being that WGW HQ are threatening to sue hiddenpaw for libel
At the moment it looks like most of the fringe events will be staying put on Halloween whatever happens. Which is good because neither me or Sian are willing or able to change our plans. We might have been a bit more forgiving if there was a genuine reason (ie the Spa burnt down) but to move because of a domestic?!
It's this sort of thing that puts people off WGW. It seems they'd rather inconvenience their customers then to work out a solution...
So we are going for halloween regardless! Who else is going?
