Asylum - The Most Splendid Steampunk Festival in the World!
This event has finished
Weekend at the Asylum is the largest purely
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.
Dress in your finest neo-Victorian garb and explore the programme of competitions, parades, exhibitions, a literary festival, a convivial programme of talks, panels and presentations. Hunt down a bargain in the "bazaar eclectic," a steampunk market. Visit the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Lady Elsie's Fashion Show, Oh Dear What Would the Major Say? (A burlesque show with a difference,) or the famous Dead Dog Party, which includes the grand steampunk quiz and a pie and pea supper.
