The Ministry of Steampunk is a voluntary organisation who host Steampunk and alternative history events, including creating and hosting the Asylum Steampunk Festival in Lincoln since 2009.
The Asylum Steampunk Festival is the largest and longest running steampunk festival in the Solar System, attracting participants from around the globe.
In August 2019 we celebrated 11 years of the Festival with Asylum 11, across a number of venues in the historic quarter of Lincoln City, with thousands of splendidly dressed Steampunks enjoying a festival which strives to combine art, literature, music, fashion, comedy and simple good fun.
Due to the global pandemic the Ministry of Steampunk, who have welcomed hundreds of thousands of people to Lincoln since 2009, had to put the event on hold, to ensure the safety of visitors and residents of the Festival’s home town. We hope to return to Lincoln in 2022.
Our next events will be THE TOWN THAT NEVER WAS in the stunning Blist’s Hill Victorian village (17/18 July).
Booking in advance for ALL events is essential and numbers are restricted to support visitor safety.

We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
