What is STEAMPUNK? Steampunk is a sub genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or the American “Wild West”. 

Make a weekend of it: Leeds Pride  is the next day. Outdoorlads will have a 'walking float' at this free festival.  Leeds has a range of hotels including budget hotels such as the Comfort Inn, Easy hotel and rooms over the Wrens pub.
