Free Steampunk festival to Newark Market Place this weekend
A free Steampunk festival is set to take place this weekend.
The Ministry of Steampunk is hosting a free festival in Newark on Saturday and Sunday.
There will be plenty going on in the town market place over the two days, including a themed market, live music, dance performances and hundreds of visitors dressed in Steampunk attire.
Parvin Mannering, of the Newark Steampunk Society, said: “I would like to personally thank the councils and councillors involved in helping bring this festival to town. Newark Steampunk Society welcomes the Ministry of Steampunk as they bring together this amazing Festival of Hope.
“The excitement is palpable, the businesses and people of Newark I have spoken with are happy that such a wonderful, polite and courteous folk are arriving to enjoy a weekend here.
“Steampunks are interactive and enjoy meeting people so this promises to be a superb time for everyone, so do stop and chat to us as we love to talk.”
In addition to the festivities in the town centre there will also be a punknic in the Riverside Gardens and, as Newark is full of history, visitors can also take a self-guided tour of the town, such as the civil war tour, the medieval tour or the Victorian tour.
