“Dunk your biscuits and see whose disintegrates first.”
THE STEAMPUNK ZONE
Come and ‘Be Splendid’ in the Steampunk Zone – with a selection of games played at Steampunk events across the globe! This will be a non-stop firework of fun, whether you are dressed in your Steampunk finery, or something a little different: all are welcome in The Steampunk Zone! There shall also be talks; book readings, and exhibitions of Steampunk sculpture from Herr Döktor; Henna painting from Emma Moreton, and all manner of splendidly
silly Steampunk games hosted by Ben Henderson (organiser of The Surrey Steampunk
Convivial.) throughout the Sunday.
What is Steampunk? Good question! It’s loosely centered around Victorian-based
Science Fiction: and is a movement that spans art, literature, fashion, and a host
of the creative arts – but to find out what the heart of it is, come and join some
splendidly dressed people being very silly and having an awful lot of fun!
