Hey you Steamponks; if you're from Leicester you got a perfect steampunk friendly ( because my dad is one and works over there har har) location; Abbey Pumping Station Museum, Corporation Road. My dad has been thinking off setting up some sorta event or just a meet since he's new to it. If you called in advance you might be able to set up photo shoots and looking in the pump house/basements.

Sunday the 12th is the last day of Alcon, so it does mean a lot of us will be in leicester, and will have Steampunk costumes, but also that we might well be busy. I'll wait and see what everyone else says, but it could be fun if others are interested, and it would make a great site for an event. Thanks for the heads up Amethyst.

Well my dad actually thought out a themed event something along the lines queen victoria becoming immortal so its like everything is not steampunk-based. The space centre is next door and they do those star wars events, so I think maybe both sites should team up and do a huuuge event for everything from sci-fi to fantasy whatever that way even people who weren't interested in steampunk or star wars could come along.
