Bursledon Brickworks Steampunk Festival

July 15th & 16th 2017 in the wonderful Bursledon Brickworks near Southampton, the only steam-powered Victorian Brickworks left in the UK, possibly in the whole of Europe, a fantastic and very appropriate venue for steampunk, we are adding a market and lots of live entertainment to the already fantastic industrial heritage museum, which features steam engines, narrow gauge railways, traction engines, huge machines and small machines, a penny slot machine arcade, cafe, amazing brick kilns which never once were allowed to go out and burnt continously for the whole lifetime of the brickworks – it’s just a fabulous place to explore.
