STEAMPUNK fans can indulge in their hobby at an event in Bradford this weekend.

Leeds Steampunk Market will stage its latest two-day event at Bradford Industrial Museum, expected to attract between 1,200 and 1,500 people.

The free event will be held at the Moorside Road site tomorrow and Sunday, between 10am and 4pm on both days.

Bradford Industrial Museum has stepped in after the Boxing Day floods meant its usual venue, Armley Mills in Leeds, could not stage it.

The Steampunk movement is based around the idea of science fiction set in the past, specifically the Victorian era – a world that incorporates steam power and other Victorian technology, rather than electricity and computers.

Common sights by those who enjoy the pastime include industrial goggles, corsets, top hats and antiquated military weaponry.

Jo Burgoyne-Neal, event organiser, said: "It's the first time we have held a market in Bradford.

"We don't know what we will get in Bradford but hopefully it will bring people through the door.

"It's escapism, it's a good way to be an accepted outcast."

The event will also feature steampunk traders, artists and authors, a steampunk magician and a smoothie maker powered by a Penny Farthing.
