You may know Andy Dolan by various other names; Andy Pan Within, Hubcap Diamondstar or even possibly Jam Man. It’s like he’s trying to avoid detection by Interpol, but it’s nothing like that. The organiser of Whitby Steampunk Weekend has acquired these names throughout his life.

Immortalised in the works of Bram Stoker, the small fishing town already hosts two major events in the shape of Bram Stoker Film Festival and, of course, Whitby Goth Weekend. If that wasn’t enough, February 2017 saw the very first dedicated steampunk weekend held at the Pavilion, which is located at the top of a ridiculous amount of steps.
