PICTURE GALLERY: All the colour and drama of Eastbourne Steampunk festival

Steampunk set out to ‘dazzle, astound, entertain and delight’ visitors of all ages on the seafront over weekend.

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.
