A two-day festival in Haworth celebrating the increasingly popular Steampunk movement could attract hundreds of aficionados from across the country.

Scheduled to take place in November, the event would be the first of its kind in the district, and organisers hope it eventually becomes as successful as a similar gathering in Whitby.

Plans are still in the early stages, but organisers are eager to speak to Steampunk groups to get an idea of how to make a festival that will become an annual pilgrimage for them.

    1. Lorna, you can get in touch with Nikki who owns Firths Boutique in Haworth. She’s one of the main organisers. I don’t know her contact details, but a quick search online should prove fruitful. If not, try Michael Young on White Rose Yorkshire Steampunks. I believe he’s heavily involved in the organisation. Let me know how you get on. 🙂
