The most ‘splendid in the World’ and the biggest Steampunk festival in Europe will take place in Lincoln this weekend. A Weekend At The Asylum VI is the festival’s tag line and you’re guaranteed to come across people dressed in ways that will make you doubt their sanity.
This weekend, from the 12 – 14th September, the streets of the old city are transformed by people wearing fantasy neo-Victorian costumes. From top hats and flying goggles, to corset and flamboyant feathers and you are welcome to join in the Victorian fantasy.
This annual event celebrates a steam powered world in the late 19th century and attracts visitors from all over the world. From the 12th to the 14th September, the festival features a full programme with a fringe style programme of art, literature, music, fashion, comedy and simple good fun.
The Bazaar Eclectica in Castle Square is a Steampunk market, (free to enter) where you can the public, to the city and get into the clothing and accessories that make the scene so visually exciting, although you don’t have to dress up to be part of the fun.
The Victorian Steampunk Society website has more information about the event.
Our steampunk jewellery would make a great addition, or a start, for your Steampunk wardrobe, and you can see more in our online Steampunk shop.
