An email has just been sent out to interested parties that the Victorian Steampunk Society have secured plans with the City of Lincoln to ensure the survival of Weekend at the Asylum for at least the next five years.
In the email, they expressed that organising successive events has proved more difficult, so they see this as a positive turning point for Lincoln and steampunks.
There has to be compromises though, and with Asylum the date has had to be changed to August Bank Holiday weekend.
Therefore the date for 2015 has been set. Friday 28th August sees the start of the event with it wrapping up on Monday 31st August. From next year, the festival sees a whole extra day of activities.
Keep Steampunk Journal bookmarked and I’ll update you as soon as I hear anything more.
