Grand Victorian & Steampunk Festival

  • Date(s): /06/2019
  • Telephone: 01271 863001
  • About:

    Coordinated by a group of volunteers who enjoy re-enacting the Victorian Age in costume, dance, song and spectacle. Fundraising throughout the year to produce a programme with a little bit of everything from the sublime to the unusual, from Bathing Belles to a Celebration Ball, Grand Parades and Tea Parties.

    Whilst you don't need to be in your Sunday Best to enjoy the event, visitors and the local community are all encouraged to join in and you may even find preferential deals on selected local attractions for those visiting in traditional Victorian or Steampunk costume! Competitions run throughout including the Best Dressed, Art Competitions, Best Shop Window and more which make the Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration an inclusive event for visitors as well as the local community.

    The final weekend welcomes Steampunks from near and far to join in the celebrations with a more fun and unusual twist focusing on the historical elements of Science Fiction. With live music, tea duelling, fireworks and more all against the stunning Victorian backdrop of Ilfracombe Town. Young or old Ilfracombe Victorian Week is a celebration to participate and enjoy.

    Programmes will be available from the Tourist Information Centre and other locations around the town.
