Steampunk Festival Coming to Filey
8:56am 19th March 2017
A steampunk festival's coming to Filey.
The town's to join forces with the Scarborough Fair Collection at Lebberston as part of the 'Seaside Spectacular Weekend' starting on May the 19th.
There'll be music, teapot racing and circus entertainment on the streets.
But what is steampunk?
Chairperson of Filey and District Tourism Association, Jeannie Williams, explains:
"It's all things to all people really. Basically, it's to do with a genteel Victorian culture of good manners. They wear fantastic outfits - a bit over the top, abit like space travellers.
We're hoping people will be interested in coming. It will boost the local economy and that's the whole point. I think we've got such a lovely town here so let's share it with everyone. We've got the Victorian and Georgian facades, the ideal backdrop for steampunk photographs".
