  • Don’t forget Nottingham Industrial Museum’s Steampunkalia on 29th & 30th June! Engines running, Steampunk performers, market stalls and so much more!

    Lucy on

  • You’ve forgotten Filey Steampunk Festival May 18-19 this year. It’s only small but it’s growing :)

    Yvette Moore on

  • will there be a Steam punk event this year at Blaenavon? We’ve been to the last couple of events there had a great time, this year I was hoping to organise a race the train event with our group Hash House Harriers and the Bleanavon steam railway. Think its got all the right items to apeal to a wide audience to complement your event.

  • This list looks rather incomplete. Have you checked the British steampunk events and UK steampunk events groups on Facebook?
