Goodness me, is it that time already?
Almost time for another Steampunk Hidden Event, don't you think? Let me tell you all about the next one then.
Myself and the curator of The Gentlemen's Relish Club have teamed up to create a Frankenstein's monster of an event. We have Victorian science shows, board games, live music, artsy stripping, markets and more. And because so much is happening for this event, we decided it needed in equally long moniker. Hence, we bring to you: The Steampunk Hidden Laboratory Encounters Gentlemen's Relish
! Please feel free to abbreviate as you wish
We are going the extra mile this time, so as well as having the usual melee of markets and merriments during the day, we will be opening up the theatre from 3pm, where you will find befuddled scientists giving demonstrations of some once revolutionary inventions. Record sound on wax using an Edison Phonograph, or give yourself a jolt with the Violet Wand. More details on other side shows to follow!
From 7pm we have live bands, including the inspirational Sunday Driver, Perhaps Contraptions, Brother Goat and The Henry Brothers. Of course there will also be a variety of debauchery on stage, in the forms of nudity and even pipe smoking poetry. Yes, there will be poets smoking on stage! Just like the days of old.
Tickets are available from: http://www.brightonfestivalfringe.org.uk/ticketing/index.aspx?q=steampunk+hidden
They are £10/8, and are slightly more pricey this time because we have more performances plus the costs of entering an event into the Fringe brochure. We do want you all to come though, so if money is an object that you think will get in the way of your attendance, please get in touch, and we will find a job for you for a couple of hours before, during or after the event.
So, just to remind you all:
1st May from 3pm
The Steampunk Hidden Laboratory Encounters Gentlemen's Relish
The Marlborough Theatre Brighton
