I was going to post a message on this forum to mention our Great Exhibition show but I see I've been beaten to it. So gratified to see the positive comments, which are very much appreciated. Thanks to our supporters - I think you realise this is a labour of love and that without your participation it wouldn't happen. We're also not perfect, so any feedback is always welcome.
For this our third birthday party we're happy to have gathered some of the best known steampunk creators: Prof. Maelstromme, The Clockwork Quartet are exhibiting pieces and it's looking very likely that Herr Döktor and James Sydeian are going to supply exhibits too. A variety of steampunk artists and craftspeople will be selling their wares, and if you fit that description and would like a space to sell from, do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
- we'd love to hear from you.
There's a tremendous pool of talent associated with the steampunk world and it's impossible to book them all at one event, but I think anyone with a love of the steampunk aesthetic will get something from performers like Thomas Truax, Voltini and his amazing Tesla coil show, Elemental the pith-helmeted rapper, Tankus The Henge and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer.
On top of this we have spontaneous entertainment breaking out around the building such as bands and walkabout characters in the stairwells and alcoves... Hodman and Sally, visitors from Oblivia, have to be seen to be believed and Oompah Brass, with their oompah renditions of pop tunes, are quite unique.
Although the White Mischief crowd is wider than just steampunks, we very strongly encourage the dressup aspect so we're proud that it's one of the most heavily costumed groups of partygoers you'll see anywhere. Some of our revellers explore the steampunk look even if they're just beginners - but it's great to have you seasoned experts to show them what's what.
As for when the party might sell out, I'm updating a banner on the site every time we go up a bracket by 10%. Right now it's at a little over 20% so you still have time to buy your ticket, but as someone else has said, our NYE and Halloween parties sold out a week or so before the date and many of our big events do sell out. So try to give yourself time. And please spread the word...the more genuine steampunk enthusiasts the better.
