Gallery 2 > Event Coverage > Illuminated Abbey, Whitby, North Yorkshire. UK

My first visit to the Illuminated Abbey event, in the heart of Whitby, on the North-Yorkshire coast of the UK. Although it was a cold and breezy night on the National Trust site, this was a brilliant experience and a must for any photographer. On location for approximately two hours, there was plenty of entertainment and food stalls around the Abbey itself, so I was rather busy with my camera, to say the least.


A brief publicity intro of the event follows ...


Cast light on a dark history! See Bram Stoker's inspiration in a new light as Whitby Abbey is bathed in dramatic illuminations. As you explore its gothic splendour, our costumed characters will introduce the darker side of the past with tales of grave robbing and witch trials. You can also experience a live performance of Dracula to complete your visit. Wrap up warm, pack your camera and take a wander around the glowing ruins from 6pm - 8.30pm, with costumed performances throughout, and our much-loved Dracula performance at 8.30pm. Halloween fancy dress encouraged!
