The Most Splendid
Steampunk Festival in the World!
Well it's all over for another year.
Thank you to everyone who worked to make it such a phenomenal success and indeed to everyone who came along and enjoyed a superb weekend. We look forward to seeing you at future events.
Steampunk at the Seaside - March 2014
ASYLUM VI - September 2014.
Weekend at the Asylum is the largest purely steampunk event in Europe and attracts participants from around the world. For three glorious days each year the historic streets of Lincoln are thronged with 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?
The Asylum is organised and run by the Victorian Steampunk Society which is a voluntary not-for-profit organisation that exists to facilitate Steampunk. The VSS receives no grants or subsidies and the entire festival is paid for wholly from ticket sales. Even so efforts are made to keep it as affordable as possible and there are lots of free to access features too.
