Lincoln Steampunk Weekend – 24th August [24-08-2024]

from/per person £19.00
  • Barnsley


Experience four days of creativity, imagination and fun at the Lincoln Steampunk Festival. Enjoy daytime entertainment, markets, parades and exhibitions in the Cathedral Quarter, followed by an evening of events at the Drill, Engine Shed, Blue Room and Assembly Rooms.

“Weekend at the Asylum” takes its name from its first venue in the city, The Lawn, originally a lunatic asylum serving the city and county.

The Lincoln Steampunk Festival is the largest steampunk festival in the world and a highlight of the city’s events calendar, with thousands of people thronging the streets many in stunning creative outfits and costumes.

The festival attracts visitors from all around the world and for just four days the historic streets of the city become a victorianesque world which owes as much to “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and “Back to the Future” as Lincoln’s genuine and beautiful history.

Steampunk is an inclusive arts movement that reimagines our Victorian past adding in modern values and a splash of science fiction. It includes music, films, sculpture, literature, dance and of course costuming. Lots and lots of costumes!

The street festival is totally free, but some venues may have admission charges.

Whether you want to just explore the streets and marvel at the participants or buy yourself a wristband or ticket for some of the 100+ features on offer this is a weekend that you must not miss.

Everyone is welcome. Steampunk outfits are not obligatory but why not take this opportunity to really dress to impress?
