Steampunk Weekend

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Welcome to 'The Town That Never Was #5 – Around the World in 80 Days'

For this weekend only, Blists Hill Victorian Town will again transform into The Town That Never Was. The Ministry of Steampunk are taking over in the most spectacular way. So, grab your goggles and dress to impress in your Steampunk finery as you enjoy the charms of the UK’s only complete Victorian Town with a science fiction twist.

Browse the wares of the very best Steampunk makers and traders. There will be lots of performances and musical entertainment around the Town throughout the weekend.

A neo-Victorian scientific fantasy, Steampunk is all about mixing the old with the new. It re-imagines today’s technology powered by nineteenth century steam, combined with lots of good humour, fun, games and elaborate fashions inspired by Victorian and Edwardian costumes reinvented for the twenty first century and beyond.

This year’s theme is ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ and will include:

  • The fabulous Belly Fusion Dance Collective performing at intervals around the Town
  • Sci-fi Airship Pirates display
  • Articulate and animated Speakers Corner presentations
  • Specialist Steampunk arts and crafts market

Admission is included free with The PASS and The PASS PLUS.

A visit this weekend is not like visiting on a 'normal' weekend - expect the weird, the wonderful and the wacky to be front and centre during your visit.
