Leicester Richard III Square

Official Programme for Steampunk New Year Released!

(This event is now over – look for details of next year’s NEW YEAR EVENT soon!)

Hot on the heels of the announcement of short stay packages for the Splendid Steampunk New Year event in Leicester, the Victorian Steampunk Society (organisers of the Asylum) are pleased to release the official programme for the event.

Over the three days of the event there will be a whole host of fun activities, workshops, entertainment, celebrations and events to keep everybody smiling and to welcome the New Year in a most splendid way!

Along with the “event of the year” – New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner, and meals in the fabulous Pierre Marco White restaurant, the many activities will include:

  • A trip to the Richard III visitor centre
  • Sari Workshop and fabric shopping
  • War Games & a Games Room
  • Gin & Cheese tasting
  • Maker’s workshop
  • Nerf Gun Modding
  • Dance workshop
  • Bartitsu Demonstration
  • Bodice making workshop
  • Jewellry making
  • Comedy workshop

And a very special Sherlock Evening,  along with old favourites such as Tea Duelling and a Leicester-based Walk with the Spirits (Gin & Ghost Stories!).

Along with the ‘official events’ there will be a number of workshops and talks lead by participants, and impromptu events that the world of steampunk is famous for! (Oh, and that market what never happens – might not happen over the weekend too… but don’t tell no one right? shhh!).
