Steampunk Weekend

Saturday 25th –  Sunday 26th June 2022

‘Belvoir Revisited’ is getting a sci-fi fantasy twist this weekend as our famous Regency Castle prepares for the Ministry of Steampunk takeover!

Escape to an alternate futuristic reality powered by steam and adventure! Discover the history of how Steampunk started, climb the famous Belvoir Hill with the mountaineering duo, and explore the Castle and grounds full steam ahead, spotting the captivating acts along your travels.

Simply lose yourself amongst the top hats, copper goggles and ruffles that you’ll be sure to see plenty of throughout the day! – Why not try dressing up yourself for the ultimate mid-Summer escapade.

Stay a little longer and enjoy the delights of the Engine Yard shopping village, a magnificent converted 19th century industrial yard now filled with independent retailers and our whimsical Balloon Bar. Stay for a decadent cocktail and enjoy the interiors filled with hot air balloons and copper clogs, it’s the perfect way to end a fantastical day!
