I'm back as promised with photos of the Victorian Bizarre event! Sadly I was tied to the tearoom all day and didn't get to take photos of all the well dressed attendees, but here are some photos of the stalls and Victorian reenactors!


Volunteer gardeners getting into the spirit of the day and running a plant stall to raise money for the Mill


Exhibition of Steampunk art by Red Fox Curiosity Workshop



Simon the snakeoil salesman, plying his wares!


Magic Lantern Show!


Jan the schoolmistress, about to discipline some unruly pupils, who have been gossiping over their copybooks!


Jess from UPAN'AT'EMHISTORY


Our millers fired up the oven to bake a range of Victorian treats including real gingerbread.


Taxidermy display showing vintage furs, items from Birmingham Museums collection and modern pieces created by Taxidermy Zoo. Remarkable contrast, not just of method (no arsenic etc) but also of ethics - all modern pieces made with naturally deceased animals and birds.


Our manager Mr Dixon wearing his favourite waistcoat.


I'm on the right with teacup hat of course, Kelly on the left with bird fascinator she made for running the taxidermy stall. Please excuse the poor lighting, this was taken after the event had finished.

Now that looked like a jolly and interesting event, second the thanks for taking time to post pictures. ( don't know why But I love the one of 2 ladies on the plant stall) and I must say everyone looks great.

Thanks everyone, it was indeed a very jolly day! We've already started planning for next year's event to make it bigger, better and improve the publicity. I'll post here as soon as I know next year's date.

Glad you like the photo of our gardeners, they are true diamonds the pair of them, we are so lucky to have wonderful volunteers.

25th June and 26th June (very short notice!) and I think also the weekend afterward?- is the 1940s event at the Severn Valley.   

It is next weekend too (always the last weekend in June and the first in July for their 40s event).

I'm back as promised with photos of the Victorian Bizarre event! Sadly I was tied to the tearoom all day and didn't get to take photos of all the well dressed attendees, but here are some photos of the stalls and Victorian reenactors!

(snip)

It does look like it was a wonderful event and thank you so much for the photos (and I must say the teacup fascinator is very cute!) Bigger and better sounds great - hopefully we will be available for the next time.

Yours,
Miranda.

For any interested, "The Steampunk Gazette" is £6 in the Works in Merry Hill at the moment (and they have many pretty Santoro London "Willow" craft supplies as well. With cogs on.) Just thought I ought to share my discovery Wink

Thanks - next time we're across there I'll have a look for that (although if I'm really lucky it may be in the Stourbridge outlet too).

It's the Stourbridge carnival on Sunday (3.7.16), and the 'Vintage Village' will be part of it, so there may be some interesting items to be picked up.

Yours,

Hullo, everyone - thought I should introduce myself on here!

I had a great time at Wightwick last month, so am looking forward to more fun at the Pen Museum this coming weekend. I hear they're currently in the throes of a development, however - hopefully that won't impact on us too much!

Thanks ^.^ I'll have to try to navigate my way there, I don't believe I've ever visited before (though my profession considered, it's definately high time!)

Apologies chaps I've been a bit preoccupied

Meeting point is the square behind the rose villa tavern. Well meet at 10 and take morning tea whilst waiting for the group to assemble. Perusal of nearby shops forthwith and then off to the pen museum which opens at 11. That is very small and £1 entry. Thereafter perambulation down Vyse street to the graveyard and wander round the outside of the catacombs. Then lunch. After lunch aim to be at museum of the jewellery quarter for 1pm entry is £5 group rate for basic entry. Special offer of £10 includes guided tour at 1.15 guide book and free tea in cafe.

Splendid! Many thanks for clearing that up. I'm trying to convince a few of my fellow Warwickshire Steampunks to come along, so will let them know the specifics (I've assured them of the warmest of welcomes). The Rose Villa is the one next to the Clock roundabout at the end of Frederick Street, isn't it?

Coincidentally, and this may be a silly question, but is anyone planning on going to Aston Hall's Victorian day next weekend (The 23rd)?

Thanks to everyone that play-tested Airships at Dawn at the Lamp last night, I found it very useful to watch/run a game and to get your feedback, there are a few changes I'd like to make then I hope you're all up for another round of testing.
Again, many thanks.

Looking forward to it.  I won't be in my pretty red car this time unfortunately as I have an aversion to driving in cities; so I'll be travelling down via good old LateMiserable.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

We shall most likely be meeting Mr Fallowfield in Dudley to catch the omnibus as I've had to shoot our car.

Oh dear!
Do you mind me tagging along if you're getting the bus then? I'm not as familiar with this part of Birmingham and I got lost last time that happened xD
