Whitby Goth Week­end Now un­til Sun­day Oc­to­ber 28

Thou­sands of vis­i­tors in flam­boy­ant at­tire are set to de­scend upon Whitby again for its lat­est Goth in­va­sion. Whitby Goth Week­end con­firmed ear­lier in the year that it would no longer take place at Whitby Pavil­ion, with Abbey Wharf host­ing the live mu­sic through­out the week­end – keep an ear out for glam rock, in­dus­trial and nu-me­tal mu­sic, as well as a bat­tle of the DJs. You can also catch the UK’s pre­miere in­door al­ter­na­tive mar­ket, bizarre bazaar, which is on at Whitby Leisure Cen­tre and the Brunswick Cen­tre. Foot­ball fans can head over to Whitby Town’s Turn­bull Ground on the Sun­day, as Stokoe­mo­tive Whitby FC take on Real Gothic in the tra­di­tional char­ity match, 2pm kick-off. How­ever Whitby Pavil­ion will host the first To­mor­row’s Ghosts Fes­ti­val, which will com­prise bands, film, theatre and mar­kets. The event will see an in­creased fo­cus on mu­sic with the aims of host­ing both es­tab­lished and up-and­com­ing bands. Head­line acts are Par­adise Lost (Fri­day) and Fields of the Nephilim (Satur­day). The event is be­ing or­gan­ised and pre­sented in co-op­er­a­tion with the Bram Stoker Es­tate with Dacre Stoker, the great grand­nephew of Drac­ula writer Bram Stoker.

Bo­hemian Rhap­sody (12A)

Hol­ly­wood Plaza Cinema, Fri­day Oc­to­ber 26 to Thurs­day Novem­ber 1

Bo­hemian Rhap­sody is a foot-stomp­ing cel­e­bra­tion of Queen, their mu­sic and their ex­tra­or­di­nary lead singer Fred­die Mer­cury. Fred­die de­fied stereo­types and shat­tered con­ven­tion to be­come one of the most beloved en­ter­tain­ers on the planet. The film traces the me­te­oric rise of the band through their iconic songs and rev­o­lu­tion­ary sound. They reach un­par­al­leled suc­cess, but in an un­ex­pected turn Fred­die, sur­rounded by darker in­flu­ences, shuns Queen in pur­suit of his solo ca­reer. Hav­ing suf­fered greatly with­out the col­lab­o­ra­tion of Queen, Fred­die man­ages to re­unite with his band­mates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely fac­ing a re­cent AIDS di­ag­no­sis, Fred­die leads the band in one of the great­est per­for­mances in the his­tory of rock mu­sic.
