    Weekend at the Asylum 2014: Europe's biggest steampunk festival – in pictures | Fashion | The Guardian

    Weekend at the Asylum is an annual gathering held in the cathedral city of Lincoln. Now in its sixth year, it has become the biggest steampunk event in Europe. Throughout the weekend devotees dress up in elaborate costumes, attend lectures, balls and markets, and compete in a variety of idiosyncratic sporting pursuits. Taking its inspiration from the technology of the Victorian era and the novels of HG Wells, Jules Verne and Mary Shelley, steampunk is a vibrant, imaginative and fast-growing culture. The movement’s motto is simple: ‘Be splendid!’
