The Costume Parade

The Costume Parade is held in the Castle.

Whilst many steampunks wear clothes rather than costumes, The Asylum is the perfect place to deck out in your most splendid and eye catching outfit.

Each year we run a costume parade and medals are awarded by our committee basing their scoring on imagination, quality of workmanship, creativity and execution.

If you would like to join the costume parade and be eligible for an award you need to pop along to the Assembly Rooms on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning before 12:00 and drop in the following information:

  • Your name
  • The name you wish to be introduced on stage as
  • A mobile phone number
  • The title of your costume
  • A 100 word description that will be read out as you walk around on stage.

Please include two copies of the above information. You will need to report to control point in the Castle and be ready in your outfit by the time the parade starts.
