A Splendid Day Out – A Great SteamFae Gathering

Brush off your top hat, polish your brass goggles, and head over to Morecambe to discover the fantastical world of Steampunk at this internationally renowned festival.


Known for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere, A Splendid Day Out is a mixture of music, mayhem, merriment, Victorian market and more. Find everything from themed leathercrafts and jewellery to antiques and clothing at the Steampunk Market – perfect for starting (or expanding!) your own Steampunk wardrobe. Get the adrenaline pumping with the truly unique sports of teapot racing and tea duelling! Gaze in wonder at the weird and wonderful displays, including an 18ft steampunk model railway. Have your photo taken for posterity using traditional Victorian photography equipment. Enjoy live entertainment from cloggers, sword dancers, illusionists and musicians while kids have their faces painted or experiment with sand-art sculptures. Indulge in tea, cakes, and other refreshments while you’re being entertained. And best of all, daytime entry is entirely free.


Saturday’s entertainment culminates in a Grand Parade down Morecambe Prom at 4.30pm, where all of the creative characters, costumes and outfits will be on display in all their weird and wonderful glory. And in the evenings, entertainment continues at The Kings Arms in Morecambe, where you can drink and dance the night away to live performances from burlesque, punk, cabaret artists and more (18+, tickets required).
