The event included entertainment, live music, a beer tent, stalls and a children’s fair and spanned from the Wish Tower slopes to Eastbourne Bandstand. Steampunk means many different things to many different people. To some it is a fashion, style of dress, a persona. To others it is art, craft, design, even a complete lifestyle. At its heart and in it’s beginnings Steampunk is a genre of science fiction, branching out of the Cyberpunk of the 1980’s but set in a pseudo-Victorian style era instead of the stark futuristic future of Cyberpunk.
