The North Yorkshire coastal town hosted fans from around the world to its biannual Goth Festival, which has been running since 1994.

Visitors sampled live music, a Bizarre Bazaar alternative market and were able to meet gothic authors.

The bazaar, with more than 100 stalls, sold goods 'from the delicious and adorable to the mystical and macabre'.
