Visitors to Old Cowtown Museum are used to seeing the Victorian era portrayed true to form, but when Steampunk Day arrives on Saturday May 24, they will experience a re-imagined, more advanced 19th century straight out of a Jules Verne or H.G. Wells novel. Continue reading
The steampunk Mini Market that I reported about on March 27th at Rivers MEET Cafe in Methley has been cancelled.
It was due to be held on Sunday, 18th May 2014 but has been cancelled due to a lack of interested traders.
The organisers decided it was better to cancel in advance rather than have a lack lustre event.
Don’t forget, Ladies and Gentlemen, a number of steampunks will be meeting at Salford Museum today at around 1pm for a browse around the Museum and Art Gallery. If you have a new costume to display, why not tootle along to have a photograph taken in it on Lark Hill Place, the replica Victorian street.
It looks to be great fun and I’m going to be there too, so make sure you say hello.
