Brancepeth Castle near Durham is a seriously special venue to host a Steampunk Weekend, last weekend in June so 24th & 25th 2017 – a fabulous backdrop for posing in your finest! We have a suite of amazing reception rooms in the “Entertaining Suite” created by eminent Victorian architect Anthony Salvin for his rich client, William Russell, High Sheriff of Durham in 1841, and some lovely lawns surrounded by the curtain walls.
Retail therapy and lots of live Entertainment, including a Saturday night Steampunk Soiree – hopefully outside if the weather is nice, if not we will use the rather splendid Ballroom. Line up includes Ichabod Steam and his Animatronic Band, The Time Travelling Tea Tent, Gurdybird, The Retro Clones, Scarlet Butterfly and The Wattingers.
There will be a daily admission charge to the Castle, which is not generally open to the public, of £4 per adult, children free, 10am to 5pm Saturday and 12 noon to 5pm Sunday . The Saturday night Steampunk Soiree will be seperately ticketed at £12 per adult, children free of charge.
