STEAMPUNK OKTOBERFEST

STEAMPUNK OKTOBERFEST

Details

The Victorians loved their seaside holidays, and so of course do Steampunks, a growing genre of people fascinated by all things Victorian and the fantastical notion that things would be so much better if the future had turned out a little differently….more Victorian, more Steam-Powered, Airships and Empire, Time Travel courtesy of H. G. Wells, amazing submarines courtesy of Jules Verne, and everything as splendid as possible…

So naturally Filey is a perfect place for Steampunks to enjoy a Seaside Spectacular, it is probably the most unspoilt Victorian Seaside Resort in the UK. Add to this the wonderful Scarborough Fair Collection of Steam Traction Engines, Vintage Vehicles, Fairground Rides and Fairground Mechanical Organs, and you have a recipe for the most brilliant annual festival.

The town's to join forces with the Scarborough Fair Collection at Lebberston as part of the 'Seaside Spectacular Weekend' starting on May the 19th.

There'll be music, teapot racing and circus entertainment on the streets.

Chairperson of Filey and District Tourism Association, Jeannie Williams, explains:
"It's all things to all people really. Basically, it's to do with a genteel Victorian culture of good manners. They wear fantastic outfits - a bit over the top, abit like space travellers.

We're hoping people will be interested in coming. It will boost the local economy and that's the whole point. I think we've got such a lovely town here so let's share it with everyone. We've got the Victorian and Georgian facades, the ideal backdrop for steampunk photographs".
