Steampunk Festival

The League of Splendid are inviting everyone to enjoy a ‘Steampunk Festival’ in Morecambe on Saturday, May 31.

From noon until 4.30pm, everyone is welcome at the Platform in Morecambe to enjoy numerous attractions including stalls, music, dancing and magic and a tea shop.

There will be a Steampunk market, a mini fairground, entertainment with Ash Mandrake the balladeer,The Carlisle Cloggers folk dance troupe, street magic with Kevin Cunliffe and, of course, tea and cake.

This will be followed by a night of Steampunk music from Ghostfire, right, and BB-Blackdog, with a dash of magic from local magician Kevin Cunliffe plus splendid tracks in between and after with Dog and Sho.

But what is Steampunk? A genre that defies exact description, say organisers ‘A ‘Splendid Day Out’.

The movement is essentially a fusion of Victorian fashion, craftsmanship, literature sprinkled with good manners and a taste for adventure.

Admission to the day event costs £2 (under 12s admitted free) and £13 for the evening event. All-day tickets cost £12 if bought in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com or from 13 The Warehouse, Queen Street, Morecambe.
