What is TimeQuake?
The V.S.S. are probably the most experienced Steampunk event organisers in the World. Not only are we the creators of Weekend at the Asylum, the Planet’s largest steampunk festival where a City becomes steampunk for four days we also have a decade of experience in running hotel based events, events in parks, museums, clubs and bars and even taking over holiday camps. We have also brought Steampunk to more than fifty comicons in the form of art exhibitions, stages and activities. For TimeQuake we have developed something new - a steampunk Expo!
We are teaming up with Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester and the organisers of For the Love of Sci Fi which has a reputation for breaking the mould on Comicons with huge replica props, sets and amazing guests. All in all the stage is set for a fabulous new event.
With everything under a huge single roof you will find scores of traders with steampunk and geeky goodies, exhibitions of Steampunk artwork and costumes, full scale props and set builds, our stages and talk areas with guest speakers and performers plus interactive features and presentations as you would expect from any great event. Of course there will be plenty of refreshments and a bar available too.
