Make My Day, Steampunk!
Posted on 31st January 2017 at 12:23
OUR BEAUTIFUL TOWN HAS A BUZZ ABOUT IT! COULD IT BE THAT SPRING IS ON ITS WAY?
That we’ve had some beautiful winter sunshine?
Maybe … yet we think it’s because the much-anticipated inaugural Steampunk Weekend is nearly here.
If you are wondering what Steampunk means (but were afraid to ask), we’ve gone all Sherlock Holmes and investigated this fascinating genre that includes fashion, lifestyle, art and music.
Inspired by 19th Century industrial steam-powered machinery and inventions, Steampunk also embraces literary works such as Frankenstein, The Time Machine and Around The World in 80 Days while coupling it with 21st Century technology.
Encompassing lots of Victoriana - gorgeous, elaborate clothing, fantastic contraptions and incredible music - Steampunk will come to Whitby this weekend (Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th February) to transform our seaside town into a neo-Victorian hub!
Steampunk Weekend will be colourful, inspiring and will tempt all the senses - we can’t wait to see it! Retro inventions such as penny-farthings, airships, charabancs and lots more will be a feast for the eyes.
Whitby Pavilion, just a stone’s throw from our guesthouse, is the main venue, but as with similar events, such as Goth Weekend, the whole town will be transformed into something from a sci-fi novel!
