The League of Bournemouth Steampunks and friends have been invited to take part in a re-interpretation of Edwardian Bournemouth's little known Grand Grotesque Carnival of 1910. This is planned to be a surreal lantern-lit procession in Bournemouth on Saturday 24th September, as part of 'Late Night' in Bournemouth's Arts by the Sea' festival.
The starting point for the procession will in the seafront/BIC area of the town, starting at 19:00 and ending 20:00 ish. Final details including start/finish locations and and procession route have yet to be confirmed. Note you will need to be there before 19:00 (see below).
For early birds, meet from 16:00 onwards in the Boscombe Vintage Market, being held on this night in the Lower Gardens, central Bournemouth.
The main meet-up prior to the procession will probably be around 18:00 (location to be confirmed).
We are looking at options for an appropriate location/venue for a social gathering after the procession (there will be lots of things happening in town).
Infomation on this event can be found in the following document, which will be updated as we approach the event date:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1V93lCe9lfJHgt8ajG-tN5EOwzYQV-RWPUK1rLa8dBN8/edit?hl=en_GB&pli=1#
Dresscode : Steampunk (to quote one of the organisers "I'd like the Steam Punks .... looking as Steam Punky (OTT) as possible + goggles or mask")
I have also created a Facebook event for this:https://www.facebook.com/index.php?lh=9a36e14cc1f74f8c6850c860be688e2b&#!/event.php?eid=109026399185961
As a taster, here is a picture of the original 1910 carnival:
