The Most Splendid

Steampunk Festival in the World!

ASYLUM VII   - August 28th-31st 2015. Lincoln UK


Weekend at the Asylum is the largest and longest running steampunk festival in the World and attracts participants from around the globe.  For four glorious days the historic streets of Lincoln are thronged with thousands of splendidly dressed steampunks enjoying a festival which strives to combine art, literature, music, fashion, comedy and simple good fun. Where else can you find a regency masonic lodge, a Victorian university and a medieval castle as the venues for a retro-futurist extravaganza?

2015 sees a massive expansion of the event! 

Both in terms of what is on offer plus the fact we now run over four days!

Lincoln Castle - attractions, features, parades, games, outdoor stage,  craft zone, traders, talks and more.

Assembly Rooms - Main stage, exhibition, feature stage, contact zone, evening entertainments 

Westgate Academy - Literary zone, tabletop gaming zone, food festival, evening entertainments

Bailgate Methodists Hall - Indoor Market

Bishop Grossteste University - Evening entertainments.

Castle Square - Outdoor market and street art.

(Plus two more venues we are just finalising details on...)
