Each week, Ben Hopkinson looks back at what’s happened the past 7 days and what was trending on Twitter with the Maritime Hashtag Minute.
This week’s #MaritimeHashtagMinute was #WorldGothDay, which falls on 22nd May each year. It is to celebrate everything found on the goth-scene and to take its presence and mark on the world. View the Tweets below:

It's #WorldGothDay! 🖤 From inspiring Bram Stoker's Dracula to hosting Whitby Goth Weekend, there's a unique combination of natural and cultural features that has made Whitby a popular destination for seeking thrilling horrors.— Historic England (@HistoricEngland) May 22, 2023
Have you visited the gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey? pic.twitter.com/BdDsG5GU2v
It’s no coincidence that Bram Stoker chose Whitby to be a central town in his novel, Dracula.— Summer Witch ☀️ (@LadyLeo1976) May 22, 2023
Whitby has more ghosts per sq mile than any other town in Britain.
Whitby has been enthralled by occult ever since abbess Hilda, who established Whitby Abbey i657 AD,#WorldGothDay pic.twitter.com/eBr2a3o8f8
It's #WorldGothDay, so there's opportunity for me to share a holiday snap I took of some happy chaps trying to break out of their charnel house beneath a tomb in the grade I listed Church of St. Margaret, Stratton Strawless in North Norfolk. pic.twitter.com/NLpkAkhFy7— Robert Walton (@WaltonBob) May 22, 2023
Happy #WorldGothDay to all my Dark Glam Post-Punk pals. A space where gender and sexuality diversity has been welcomed long before wider culture. Where you really can't take yourself too seriously. I have become one of those 1970's anglo-catholics in a leather jacket. pic.twitter.com/6bQQjtMg80— Fr. Eddie Green SC SCP (@EddieBGreen) May 22, 2023
