They dived into a world of nauticalia with a Victorian twist, as visitors discovered gadgets, gizmos and gin during the event last weekend.

Visitors experienced the fine art of tea duelling, saw a boutique fashion show and heard talks on Steampunk culture.

There was music too with Steampunk-inspired artists Captain of the Lost Waves, Victor and the Bully, Alice’s Night Circus and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer.
