This has been agreed by Crewe Town Council as an annual event. It will be staged each year over the late May Bank Holiday, so May (27th) 28th 29th 30th 2016.
Crewe has a wonderful heritage of Victorian Steam Locomotive Engineering, so a very apt location. It also benefits from a restored Victorian / Edwardian Theatre, ideal for a Steampunk Concert.
We have 4 nights and 3 days of Steampunk themed Entertainment, all of the daytime shenanigans are FREE, the evening Entertainments individually ticketed.
We have an impressive line up including Professor Elemental, BB BlackDog, Montague Jacques Fromage, Jezebel Steele’s Saturday Night Burlesque Show, Ichabod Steam and his Animatronic Band, Lux Delicioux, Victor & The Bully, Diva Hollywood, Birthrite, Satine Di Monte, Kiss Like Ether, and The Retroclones.
Daytime includes Steam Traction Engines, Games, Competitions, A Dancing Bear, Steampunk Market, Buskers, Street Theatre, Ghost Stories, Seminars, Burlesque Classes, The Time Travelling Tea Tent, The Palace of Curiosities, Picnics – and lots of Afternoon Tea.
