A Splendid Steampunk New Year
At the end of 2009 a group of around 20 steampunks gathered at a Yorkshire hotel to see in the New Year. The event was great fun and so for 2010 a more ambitious event was planned. This time there were 55 of us at a hotel in Northamptonshire. We had our own dedicated space and had an excellent time.
For 2011 we are returning to the Holiday Inn in Corby Northants to welcome in 2012 in steampunk style.
Unlike some of our other events this is a bit more relaxed and free form. The focus is the gala dinner on New Year's Eve (download the menu as part of the information document below) but we are also staying on the 30th December and January 1st. This gives us a long weekend of Friday to Bank Holiday Monday for relaxation, socialising and steampunk activities. You can attend some or all of the event as you wish/can afford.
On Friday night we will be organising an evening entertainment. Saturday daytime some folks are planning a trip out antique hunting or walking whilst others will stay in the hotel for socialising, tea duelling, dance classes, role playing games, frock froths etc. New Year's day we do not expect to start early but more of the same and we will be donning victorian bathers for a session in the pool. Sunday night more entertainments, with further details to be announced.
If you want to attend you can book your place HERE.
The event costs a basic £8.50 This secures your space (there are only 100) and is the deposit for the gala dinner. If you just want to attend the fun and not go to the dinner then there is nothing more to pay (apart from your accomodation of course). If you want to go to the dinner then there is an additional £30 per person to pay which must be done by 3rd November since we have to pay the balance to the hotel by the 7th.
We have negotiated a reduced rate for accomodation. On the 30th and 1st a double room including breakfast and dinner is £79. For New Year's Eve this drops to £64 but does not include dinner. (It is gala dinner night after all.)
You should phone the hotel direct on 01536 464746 to make your booking making it clear it is for the "Victorian New Year"
A timetable will be published in due course and further details here. If you would like to offer any activities or organise anything please EMAIL with your ideas.
We look forward to seeing in the New Year with you.
