Free

Get on board the cabs of selected steam locomotives, take a steam train ride behind Furness Railway No. 20, and browse the excellent selection of steampunk trade stands.

Plus, don’t miss performances of ‘A Few Feet Up’ by street theatre / contemporary art duo Same Difference.

‘A Few Feet Up’ proposes the theory that a slight physical change of perspective can bring about a conceptual one. The audience will see that just above our heads is an entirely (if subtly) different and unexplored realm which is always present but usually just out of reach.

Eccentric pair Iris and Binks, who make up Same Difference, have been travelling from town to town, looking for interesting things to document through their magical periscope.

They need your help to make sure they document our Steampunk event in all its glory, and they’re hoping to get 1001 viewers. So come and learn how to work the magical periscope, and have a go for yourself.

 

Free entry and free parking.
