The Ministry of Steampunk

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. 

Following an agreement with Lincoln BIG, Lincoln City Council and Lincolnshire County Council, who will now take responsibility for the FREE Festival tourism visitors, the Asylum Steampunk Festival WILL return to Lincoln on 26-29 August 2022.

Our next event will be Weymouth Steampunk Christmas,a festive weekend in the historic seaside town of Weymouth.
