The Hidden Cabaret events at the Little Marlborough run bi-monthly. They are great fun and attract a great audience every time. This is very much a tribute to Tarik's (Carnival Catalyst) hard work. There is a core of steampunks based in the Brighton area including of course Commodore Rankin and Lady Raygun. There are a number who attend the Hidden Cabaret who are not members of BG and there are a number of us who travel to Brighton for the events. To make local contacts I would strongly advise you to attend the next Hidden Cabaret event get to know some of the people there. I am sure Tarik would offer introductions if you require them.
The next Brighton event is the Steampunk Hidden Laboratory on May 1st. http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,23458.0.html
Unfortunately work prevents us from attending but we are sure it will be an entertaining evening.
As a boinus, In June, which would ordinarily be a quiet month, Allegra has chosen Brighton as the location for the next Steampunk Magazine Soiree and is working with Tarik and the Little Marlborough to stage a full weekend of steamy fun.
