Blists Hill Victorian Town Holds its first Steampunk Weekend Festival

Steampunk Weekend Festival

‘The Town that Never Was’ 1st – 2nd July

Steampunks and their friends are invited to Blists Hill Victorian Town, near Ironbridge over the weekend of 1st and 2nd July for its first ever Steampunk Festival. The fantastical ‘Town that Never Was’ day and evening event is part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

A neo-Victorian scientific fantasy, steampunk is all about mixing the old and new. It re-imagines today’s technology powered by 19th century steam, combined with lots of good humour, fun, games and elaborate fashions inspired by Victorian and Edwardian costumes, reinvented for the 21st century and beyond.

Shambala Festival returns on 24th – 27th AUGUST 2017 to a secret Northamptonshire location

Shambala Festival

Shambala, the family friendly, proudly independent and socially-conscious festival will be continuing its ‘adventures in utopia’ with another four day celebration of all things music, art, dance, poetry, comedy, workshops and theatre on 24th – 27th August.

The variety and quality of entertainment on offer is staggering for a festival of its size and as ever, participation is the name of the game. This isn’t a festival where you park your bum in front of the main stage all day – it’s a place to get your hands dirty, whether that means building your own adventure playground, honing your fine art skills in a c*ck drawing class, or learning how to build a house through open-source technology.
