As some of you may be aware, four days ago, I set up the British Steampunk Events Page on facebook.

I am aware that not everybody is happy with facebook, and I would certainly encourage everyone to continue listing their events on Brass Goggles.
For those who are not facebook fans, here is the latest list from the facebook page. Obviously this list is limited to those events that have been submitted to the Facebook group.

If you are planning a Steampunk Event, please add the details to the British Steampunk events page.

I shall endeavour to update the list below at the start of each month, You can find the most recent version of this list, HERE.

Steel and Water LARP
http://steelandwater.brownpapertickets.com/
https://www.facebook.com/events/182472478577322
It's 1882 and Belfast sits proudly as the de facto capital of The Federated
Northern Isles. Its docks bustle with trade and the populace thrives.
Boasting the worlds first subterranean, submarine public transit system and home to
some of the worlds grandest and finest engineering Belfast is the very
model of a modern city. However, civilisation and endeavour always come
at a price and must always face trials.
An immersion roleplay experience in which you become your
steampunk persona and face the challenges of an advanced and alternative
Belfast.

Wymondham Dickensian Steampunk Fayre
https://www.facebook.com/events/501029803306752
Many of the local shops will take up the Steampunk theme from opening time, thus giving vistors time to explore the town in style before the Fayre opens. The Market Place is slosed to traffic from mid-day . The Fayre itself opens at 2.00pm, together with a running programme of entertainment until 6.00pm. Then for the rest of the evening most (if not all) of the local pubs and clubs will provide further entertainment.

Tidied and updated with the latest available copy from the Facebook Events page, if you would like the list updating I would suggest contacting Mr Addams via Facebook as I have stepped down from Administrating that page.

I am aware that not everybody is happy with facebook, and I would certainly encourage everyone to continue listing their events on Brass Goggles.
For those who are not facebook fans, here is the latest list from the facebook page. Obviously this list is limited to those events that have been submitted to the group.

If you are planning a Steampunk Event, please add the details to the British Steampunk events page.


A gentle reminder for some, a gentle tap on the wrist for others who have not bothered reading the first post in a sticky. This listing will only be updated with events posted on the above Facebook group. Events posted in the comments here will not be added and will usually be tidied, or removed.

Unless somebody has an event and actually adds it to the list or promotes here on Brass Goggles or on the Facebook page your guess is as good as anybody else's. Smiley

The list above is simply a copy of the list of events posted on the facebook page.
I am not responsible for the posting of events, merely the management of the page, It is upto the event organizers weather they post the events or not.
The list is updated at lest once a month, but if you want to see if there are any new events, I suggest that you take a look at the recent posts on the page.
In short, I have no way of knowing if an event has been organized, but not listed.

Other than the free afternoon tea event? Which, by the way, is on the 17th of August and not the 7th.

If it does well we are hoping to hold more.

Might I mention The Surrey Steampunk Convivial?

By popular demand, we shall be running two this year: the first was in February, and the second shall be August 22nd and 23rd 2015, and we are very much looking forward to it. Well, I'd even go as far as to say we are excited about it. There, I said it.

Sir, you are too modest.  I might mention that we expect the Sussex Convivial in August to include the UK's first exhibition of Splendid Teapot Racing.  Would that we could attend ...
