Given the lack of Steampunk events in the UK compared to the US would anybody be interested in an event in the west country of England (Wiltshire, Somerset) to expand the current steampunk community in general? The area we had in mind would be Warminster which is easy to get to by rail or car from most areas of Wiltshire and Somerset. As we understand it there will not be a Steampunk Extravaganza in nearby Frome, which is such a shame and highlights how little there is in this area. If the Frome event is still going ahead we would be overjoyed but an extra event is always welcome! We need to expand the events in this part of the country. Our hope is to start up a new event to help our community thrive. We were thinking of the name Steaminster but this may be subject to change.

Would there be any interest in such an event and what would people like to see if so? We plan on contacting local venues, hiring bands and assembling an assortment of activities and stands. Depending on this we can look at drinking establishments or even the local park which has a bandstand. The park frequently hosts events of this calibre, though not yet of this genre. The town already has a Victorian feel to it, which would only benefit such an event. We are not thinking of anything over ambitious, we do know our limits, and depending on the scale we could either self fund this venture of use Kickstarter or similar.

Hopefully there will be interest as we would like Steaminster to happen! We are hoping to get this done by autumn next year but if there enough interest even for a small event or meetup then we will make it so. There will be professional photographers present

Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for any feedback or suggestions.
