I had no intention of going to Whitby Goth Weekend this time, most of the bands that were on at the Spa I had seen in smaller venues in the last few months and I don`t like the hordes of `dresser - uppers` and photographers that the event attracts in the town on Saturday and Sunday.

With the weekend`s planned event cancelled due to the weather, the field was so wet that the site owner would not let cars and caravans on it. It has been agreed that the fun and games will be held in 2 weeks` time at the last meet of the year at Skipton, so as I put it on Facebook
New poster, background pic not mine
As the zombied corpse of The Nightmare was pulled into the steaming swamp at Ripon, so it is to be reborn [25 miles west along the A59] at Skipton……………The Nightmare Continues ………… Halloween is resuscitated.......
The resurrection of the cancelled Lockside meet; Planed Program includes; Witches Hat Sorting Game and Quiz - Chris`s Cauldron Raffle - Saturday Supper (everyone bring something) - Music mixing chart Halloween songs with a few Darker records from an Eldergoth DJ - Much silliness, games and Quizzes. This is an App’y Production™ for Spen Valley D.A. Hosted by Chris and Alastair. If you’ve been to one of “ours” before, you’ll want to come to this. If you haven’t then you need to come to this. It’s one to tick off the bucket list. N.B. The weekend will be stewarded by Peter.
Meanwhile Chris has been arty

At the start of the month I posted that for Halloween Chris and I would be managing an event for our caravanning group. Well we have been working hard making decorations, games, quizzes and the like. We have also been spamming, I mean advertising it on various places on Facebook so for your amusement here are some of the funnier adverts.
N.B. NONE OF THE ORIGINAL PICTURES WERE MINE; I pinched them off Google / Facebook etc.
|Have you seen our bus yet?|
What will you be drinking at Halloween ? Spen Valley’s Nightmare before Skipton ALE. Available only at Lockside, Ripon
And finally I asked if the site owners could decorate the room like this for us, this is the Parish in Huddersfield UK

Two more, still to go up are

So it will be about 20 years from the last time that I saw The Sisters of Mercy live, and about the same since I went to a gig at what is now called Leeds Beckett Students Union, we just called it the Uni back then.
Someone said to me “Everyone you know will be here tonight” that was not quite true, even from the scene, and if it were it was so crowded you couldn`t find them all. I did find few friends in the bar area pre start.

I would go see them again, but not at the uni.
