Hello all,
   This may be a rather silly question, or my inability to use the search engine, but is there a regular meeting of those who love all things steam in London? as I am now in a poisition where I could attend, mind you my attire would have to be a fine suit as the rest of my clothing is annoyingly uniform.

Hi Captain! And also to The Little Pixie Tailor and any other London dwellers! I was hoping to rally a band of people together to ocassionally meet for social purposes...not necessarily being directly linked to steampunk but just an opportunity for like-minded people to hang out and make new friends etc.

I did set up a thread on this part of the board called The Guild of London Town but didn't get much of a response so I figured people weren't interested. If any of you ARE, however, how about you throw your ideas for meeting places at us and see if we can get a social together?! I wasn't thinking of anything 'official' as such. The VSS is a great band which set up proper steampunk gatherings, so you might wanna look them up- I was just thinking 'casual like'!!  Grin

I suggested going to see a burlesque show sometime cause they're awesome and I enjoy them...but I may be the only one...*cough*! So any other suggestions are welcome!  Grin

Hopefully I will actually get to meet some of you some time... Roll Eyes Wren xx

Engineer, reporting in!

Currently located in the strange anomaly known as Guildford

I am so sorry... I spent 18 years there before I made my way up to Lancashire. I would say 'the better part of', but I was packed off to school at 11, and so nine months out of twelve found me in Rickmansworth. (Now I wait and see if any fellows come out of the woodwork. Hmm).

Lancaster, here. Not quite by choice, more by inertia. Can't get up the momentum to leave. (My resident physicist appears to be doing his best to shift matters, however...  Lips sealed)

Reside in Guisborough now but originally from Merseyside - I know which I prefer! Just wondering if there are many Steampunks in the North East?  Huh

Here from good ol' Islingtonia, not far from Hackney, either.
Here's a funny fact, I have never met another Steampunk. Ever.
Maybe I shall come along to this meet-up that Wren proposes. However being 14 and with no other older Steamers I know, I shall maybe wait a while.

Everyone I seem to know lives on the line between Leeds, where I live, and Birmingham, where I am from, so I can generally be found somewhere along that line Smiley

When I'm actually in the UK, home is Grimsby.  Second home is Kingston-upon-Thames, I try to visit as often as possible.

Another from Grimsby, spending a considerable amount of my time in Hull.

Hello Aurelius,
I would refer you to the League of Essextrodinary Gentlemen thread in the United Kingdom Section of Geographical. This is a thread for Steampunks in the East Anglia region.
Whilst Steampunks are a bit thin on the ground in the South East, there are a few of us to be found.

Hello all,
   This may be a rather silly question, or my inability to use the search engine, but is there a regular meeting of those who love all things steam in London? as I am now in a poisition where I could attend, mind you my attire would have to be a fine suit as the rest of my clothing is annoyingly uniform.

Hi Captain! And also to The Little Pixie Tailor and any other London dwellers! I was hoping to rally a band of people together to ocassionally meet for social purposes...not necessarily being directly linked to steampunk but just an opportunity for like-minded people to hang out and make new friends etc.

I did set up a thread on this part of the board called The Guild of London Town but didn't get much of a response so I figured people weren't interested. If any of you ARE, however, how about you throw your ideas for meeting places at us and see if we can get a social together?! I wasn't thinking of anything 'official' as such. The VSS is a great band which set up proper steampunk gatherings, so you might wanna look them up- I was just thinking 'casual like'!!  Grin

I suggested going to see a burlesque show sometime cause they're awesome and I enjoy them...but I may be the only one...*cough*! So any other suggestions are welcome!  Grin

Hopefully I will actually get to meet some of you some time... Roll Eyes Wren xx
i would love to meet up as I'm pretty new to the steam punk scene. I study in Cambridge but, visit North London weekly to see the 'rents n for work.  Could you point in the direction of any authentic looking costume shops? I'm an absolute newbe but, im very keen to explore the sp world n meet like minded people. P.s. I like burlesque too.  I'm a member of the burlesque society at my uni, so i'd be up for goin to a show. sounds like fun.  Smiley Lady Effy x

We don't tend to organise as groups I'm afraid but there are a number of us in Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield, Rotherham and Sheffield and get together fairly regularly.  Keep an eye here on geographical.  There is talk of a get together over easter at Papplewick Pumping Station. (Just north of Nottingham).

I have to apologise as I seem to have completely missed this post.  Living at the end of the Victoria Line I would like to be involved or possible asked to be involved in future events.  I have to state I don't think I would be a "regular" as I do have other pulls on my time, but I would LOVE to meet up with others who feel that wearing a top hat and tail coat isn't a reason to shun me (although it does tend to get me seats on the tube - notice plural, sometimes almost a whole carriage)

As for burlesque, well out of decency I may have to carry two spare top hats - any indication of the hat size  Roll Eyes
