What is Steampunk?
From Wye Waltz Wiki
Steampunks are a friendly bunch, who think that the Victorian Age should have gone on for just that bit longer. Somewhere between Victorian re-enactors and science-fiction conventioneers, they're fond of both Gin and Tea, but never mixed.
Steampunk is quite a new genre, so there are few established events as yet. In the UK, the first major event is the Lawns in Lincoln, now celebrating a second successful year.
