This sounds like a great idea! I'm in Leeds and I have a similar problem of not many steampunks. I will try to make it to Sheffield as often as I can though on a student budget that may not be too often   Cry

Just a thing, there are LOADS of Leeds steampunks, they are just not very organised, perhaps you could prod them into some form of regular meet? Cheesy

I would if I could find them but since theyre pretty disorganised its rather hard to find them. Do you know when the next Leeds steampunk market is on?

"The dates for the next event are
Saturday and Sunday 9th and 10th March 2013.
The running times of both days will be 12 til 6.
Leftbank, Cardigan Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS6 1LJ."

Taken from the facebook event page, although I imagine there's a thread on here somewhere about it. I assumed Leeds had fairly regular meets actually, there being so many steampunks there.. It's definitely worth starting up a thing to gather them all! That's what I've been doing here, I don't so much organise the group as tell people a time and a place to be to find steampunks Tongue

Saying that, you're very welcome down for any of our weekly meets if you can make it Smiley

Oh also someone mentioned on facebook, apparently there's going to be some refurbishment going on at The Old Queen's Head that will result in :
Dining Area shut from 25th Feb to 1st March
Whole of Pub shut from 4th March to 8th of March

So will have to find a new base for the Thursday 7th..

Started one up today but I haven't got any replies so far. There isn't even a steampunk society at the uni and you only need 4 people to start one.

I know, I speak from experience when I say that's really annoying.

Although it is quite odd you've not encountered the Yorkshire Steam Coalition since they're largely based in Leeds I believe.

My I suggest the Sheffield Tap? No food (or Crabbies!) but a wonderful selection of beers, and sublime surroundings. The micro brewery is open now so you have the backdrop of large copper vessels.

The conversion is nicely done, it is the old First Class dining room. Especially handy for those coming in from Leeds or Manchester.

The Sheffield Tap is fantastic, although it always seems to be packed and maybe not the best for finding people..I wonder if you can book tables there..
One of the more hidden away pubs might be better, have you tried any of the ones down by the cathedral?

As nice and convenient as the Tap is, the lack of food (beyond basic bar snacks) may cause a problem for those of us (like myself) who come straight from work and don't have any other chance to get food. The museum is quite nice and does quite good food (even if the choice of drinks is limited slightly more than the Sheffield Tap).

The Tap has extended which makes it less of a crush.

Good point, forgot about that >.>

I did wonder about that, saw a bit of the extension when I was last over.. I'll go check it out briefly this Thursday on the way to the meet, see how busy it gets on a weekday evening Smiley

You can still, unless they've changed it in the past week or so.

It depends on the time I think. Sometimes they block access from the platform, I haven't noticed any pattern on when they decide to do this.

Mostly tends to be of an evening (around rush hour) or when they're on a "We'd like to have ticket barriers here but the council won't let us so we're going to be obnoxious about ticket checking" panic.

(New BG account, can't remember which name/mail/anything I used previously. Bah.)
