A groundbreaking event, introducing new genres and fusions into UK steampunk. Another jewel in the MoS crown. Next time we will wrap up a bit warmer and will already know that it’s a bit further from the hotel than we expected (we didn’t do enough homework before we went - it’s pretty obvious on the map in retrospect). It was good being under a single roof and the static displays were great. The different zones worked well. I was amazed by some of the traders’ stands; they were brilliantly themed and showed off the stock so well (subject to lighting levels). It was a 3-pie weekend for me, which is always a good thing. We loved the Cantina and the ambience in there on Friday night was spot-on. The Cataclysm Ball was good too. I could see the music went down well with loads of folk on their feet, ourselves included (although we baled out before the end through sheer exhaustion). We would definitely love to come again and if it misses the Easter w/e with potential family commitments that would suit us well - but you can’t please everyone all the time and we understand that. We feel very privileged to have been at TQ1, an event quite distinct from Asylum but which will surely grow year on year in the same way. - Nimrod Lancaster 

A truly amazing event - really loved the edgy, post-apocalyptic side of it. There was definitely something for everyone. Thank you for an epic weekend! - Hannah Spring

First time at a Steam Punk event. Amazing outfits and suitably dark for my tastes. Good to meet Peter Purvis, Rosie Jane and Simon Fisher-Becker who were lovely 

Would be interested to see how much further you could take the exhibition. -  Peter Rowe-Blackman
