THERE AND BACK AGAIN:
Venue: Llangollen Railway.
Time: From 6.00pm - come earlier as you will be sure to want to take lots of photographs in this atmospheric setting.
The lovely Carriage Tea Rooms will be open for refreshments too.
THERE AND BACK AGAIN is a two hour circular trip on a wonderful steam train. During your journey, you will be entertained with some close up magic by the prestidigitatory Miss Sylvia Sceptre and general jolly nonsense performed by Erwyd the Steampunk Jester.
We will be stopping at the beautifully restored Victorian station at Berwyn where there will be plenty of photo opportunities and further entertainments.
Immediately after the train ride, come along to the Town Hall, (just across the bridge from the railway), grab a drink from the bar, sit back and and enjoy the wonderfully weird exploits of Dr Diablo and his glamorous assistant as they defy death in their pursuit of thrilling entertainment in their Victorian style sideshow.
SATURDAY 22ND. & SUNDAY 23RD. SEPT.
THE BIZAARE BAZAAR
No Steampunk event would be complete without the opportunity to purchase extra kit. The Bizarre Bazaar is all you would expect from a thoroughly fascinating Steampunk market. Alongside the stalls, there will be a 'miniature' (but still quite big) hot air balloon flying inside the enormous arena - yes, all the stalls are indoors and so we are fully weatherproofed! Huzzah!
Alongside the market, each day is filled with COMPETITIONS, WORKSHOPS & ENTERTAINMENTS
Entertainments from: Steampunk dancers, Belly Fusion; magical minx Sylvia Sceptre and Erwyd the Steampunk Jester.
COMPETITIONS: Being Cogwarts, there will be a Steam Wizard Magic Duelling Contest! ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A FREE STEAM WIZARD EMBROIDERED PATCH.
COGGIEST CANINE: Has your doggy friend caught a touch of the Steampunk? Strut your mutt to show off their best costume.
PARASOL DUELLING: Not confined to the ladies, this is the latest cut-throat martial art. Created by our colonial cousins, this deadly form of duelling has arrived from the Americas!
TEA DUELLING: The Steampunks way of settling disputes has evolved into a fine sport. Prepare yourself to witness a tea and biscuit frenzy!
