The First Surrey Steampunk Convivial

The first Surrey Steampunk Convivial is taking place this coming Saturday 25 February, at Worcester Park in Surrey.

The gathering will start with a history walk of the road that HG Wells lived in when he wrote the Time Machine, hosted by Clive Popkin, a poet and descendant of Vlad the Impaler. This will be followed by food at the HG Wells pub, and a full day programme of features and entertainment including snail racing (subject to availability) tea duelling, a shadow puppet workshop and an alternative steampunk mini-market. There will be live music in the evening, including Steampunk artists Tom Slatter and Moth and a few special guests, with projections by Prof. Kit Krakenspine in stunning monochrome. There is even talk of an Edwardian photo booth and there will also be the Wonderful Cake Competition, not to mention an interactive steampunk theatre performance interwoven through the event.
