26th and 27th March, London
White Mischief are putting on a night of Steampunk music, demonstrations, cabaret, exhibits and audience participation.
To celebrate White Mischief’s third birthday of organising neo-Victorian events, on Friday the 26th, there is a cabaret and dinner show. The main exhibition, however, is on the Saturday night.
On the stage, there are performers like The Clockwork Quartet (who have promised to bring along their steamdrone, steam cannon and chocolate stand), Prof. Maelstromme’s Steam Laboratory, Professor Elemental, Thomas Traux, Tankus The Henge (who have a brass section and a steam-powered piano) and Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer. Not only that, but Voltini is putting on a demonstration of a Tesla coil with visible lighting, there’s angle grinding, chainsaws, a six foot balloon... I have it on good authority that Thomas Edison declined to bring his travelling menagerie of mechanical marvels for fear of going unnoticed among all the other exhibits.
If you have the heart that Mister Edison lacks and have your own Steampunk wonders to share, then get in touch quick before all the floor space goes.
Tickets start at £16.50, and go up to £29.00 if you fancy treating yourself and buying a V.I.P. ticket. Go over to their website for full details, to watch video of the do last year, and to buy tickets. And don’t forget to let them know you’re going to be there by the Facebook group, too.
