As some of you may be aware, four days ago, I set up the British Steampunk Events Page
I am aware that not everybody is happy with facebook, and I would certainly encourage everyone to continue listing their events on Brass Goggles.
For those who are not facebook fans, here is the latest list from the facebook page. Obviously this list is limited to those events that have been submitted to the Facebook group. If you are planning a Steampunk Event, please add the details to the British Steampunk events page.
I shall endeavour to update the list below at the start of each month, You can find the most recent version of this list, HERE
