The Asylum Steampunk Festival 

Evening Programme 2024


The evening events this year wil be held at The County Assembly Rooms (Thursday through to Monday evenings), The Venue at BGU (Friday to Sunday), The Drill (Friday night) and The Engine Shed (Saturday and Sunday nights). 

The most up to date information we have about the evening events will all be on this website page, which will be updated as more information comes to light or if we need to make any changes to previously released information.

Under each event on this page you will find a link to where you can buy tickets.

As usual, evening festivities will begin with the Advance Guard Party which will be held at the Assembly Rooms; if you come to the Advance Guard you will be able to collect your wristbands in advance of the main event opening on Friday. The evening will also include a very special performance by the awesome Simply Kate Bush.

On Friday evening you have the choice of The DecoDance at The Drill,  Lady Elsie's Fashion Show at the Assembly Rooms or you can see Marc Burrows perform his live show The Magic of Terry Prachett complemented by a magical performance by Dr Corvus Marconi.

Saturday night you have another three events to choose from - The Impire Ball at the Engine Shed, Pirates Ahoy! at The County Assembly Rooms with The Antipoet and The Captain's Beard and a screening of Dr Who and the Daleks at The Venue.

Sunday night's choices are the 'Time Travellers' music gig at the Engine Shed , the Asylum Burlesque show at The Venue and a new feature for this year, which will be an Open Mic Night at the County Assembly Rooms, . 

Finally, for those who don't want to go home after the closing ceremony on Monday afternoon, Monday evening will be the traditional Dead Dog Party at the Assembly Rooms. 

All of these events are described in the series of evening event pages that you can access through the main menu or the buttons below. 

Evening events require prebooked tickets.  Admission to the Advance Guard is restricted to those who have proof of purchase of a weekend wristband as well as a ticket to the event. Admission to the Dead Dog Party will require a festival wristband as well as a ticket to the event. All other evening events are open to those with or without wristbands although for obvious reasons (i.e. to fund the daytime content of the festival) we hope that as many as possible will buy daytime wristbands to support the event.
