The Fashion Policeman’s Ball is a new feature and is designed as a “game of THREE halves”.
Steampunk is often about dressing to impress and audiences at the Asylum are undoubtedly some of the most impressive in the world. The first part of the evening is all about showing off your outfits, mixing and mingling with a chance to take photographs or indeed be photographed professionally. This allows time for those of you who like to be fashionably late but also gives you time to look at a grand exhibition of outfits and costumes made by other steampunks* as well as displays by professional designers and costumier.
The second part is our homage to the Secret Policeman’s Ball. Take your seats for a show of comedy, sketches and the unusual as well as a short fashion show courtesy of our designers. In tribute to this idea a portion of each ticket sold will be donated to our chosen charities and there will also be a short charity auction.
The third part is where you get to bop until you drop. The Wight Hot Pipes absolutely stormed for The Town That Never Was. Steampunk with attitude this amazing band offer popular covers in a truly unique style including flaming bagpipes. They are guaranteed to play something that will get you dancing.
