You will find links to some of our recent displays and the characters we met under the 'Gallery' heading above - or you can go straight to the most recent event in Dublin here

We are a somewhat amorphous organisation with various offices and bureaux that cover some of the myriad aspects of Steampunk and the wider anachronistic creative scene.

We make no attempt to define Steampunk but instead strive to create opportunities where Steampunks can gather together and share their imaginations, creativity and friendship.
