  • About:

    Renamed the Ilfracombe Victorian and Steampunk Celebration and condensed to five days, the event boasted a number of new features in 2018. These included the Time Travellers Ball, which visitors are already requesting return next year, as well as a Bake Off and Victorian Paranormal Evenings, among the regular events such as the Suffragettes and Garden Parties.

    The Art Competition, sponsored by the Tubby Foundation and entitled Sherlock in Fairycombeland, attracted 148 entries with winners art being displayed in art galleries around the town.

    Steampunk is attracting new interest and breathing new life and fun into the Celebrations - Ilfracombe Victorian and Steampunk Celebration was lots of fun for all this year resulting in positive feedback.
