First-ever Steampunk Event Hailed Success

Published: 5th October 2017 16:08

The National Museum of the Royal Navy’s first-ever Steampunk event, was hailed a great success as it opened its doors to nearly 1500 people last weekend at Gosport’s Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Gosport.

The Victorian-inspired counter culture has a fascination with a type of science fiction that has a historical setting with steam technology at its heart. 

Often marked by eccentric and creative outfits, it is more than a fashion statement and visitors discovered gadgets, gizmos and gin during the event last weekend.

The two-day event saw the fine art of tea duelling, a boutique fashion show and heard talks on Steampunk culture. There was music too with Steampunk-inspired artists Captain of the Lost Waves, Victor and the Bully, Alice’s Night Circus and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer.

Mark Winterford, Public Events Executive at the National Museum of the Royal Navy and a steampunk aficionado himself said: “Steampunk is really thriving in Gosport and further afield and we had a brilliant weekend. It’s an incredible sight to see and so much thought and effort goes into the costumes. We can’t wait to hold it again next year.”
