Steampunk ? What the Heck is That !

Recommended Posts

Well today saw the arrival of the annual Lincoln Steampunk festival. we had planned to go tomorrow but decided last night to go today instead, the weather looked good today & blimey, it was beautiful !

Arrived just after 9am had breakfast in Wetherspoon's & then went & joined the zany, weird & oddball steampunk crowd around the Bailgate area !

This year was the best yet, 50k visitors expected this weekend for the Steampunk festival, continues until Monday night.

Went for a pint at lunchtime & found a pub flogging draught Hobgoblin ! Smashing.

Hopefully it won't be too long before Mrs Catfan puts a slideshow together, I will then upload it on YouTube.

This was on Facebook a few days ago. Generate your own Steampunk name. I seem to be Captain Jasper Addle-Hold.

Mrs Catfan has thrown a slideshow together of this event.

In glorious HD video 1080p @60fps in stereo sound.

 

So, as they say, enjoy !

Brilliant pics Catfan. It looks as though folk made a real effort.

I was in that area near the castle last Sunday celebrating my birthday as my daughter only lives a few hundred yards from the castle.

Do you know the main thing I like about your pics? You and Sue ALWAYS look so happy together. That means a lot. Fantastic !
