The Coventry Steampunk Carnival

Download Event to Calendar

Saturday 19 May (11am - 5pm)
Sunday 20 May (11am - 4pm)

Millennium Place, outside the museum

Taking place against the backdrop of the museum, the Carnival will feature Steampunk themed live entertainment and music.

Steampunk can be described as Victorian Retro Futuristic Science Fiction, if you are unfamilar with the genre! Loosely based on the works for Jules Verne and H.G. Wells it influences film, music and fashion. Intrigued? It's easy to join in with as the community are extremely welcoming and the basics for costume can be acquired cheaply in charity shops, and enhanced to your heart's content - the only limit is your imagination!

Entertainments on the day will include 

Ichabod Steam and his Animatronic Band 

Rivers and Kidd  

Kiss Like Ether  


Open mic session

and more! 

Plus head inside the museum for the fantastic Steampunk Marketplace!
