WEYMOUTH 4 DECEMBER 2022
THE GRAND STEAMPUNK PARADE, ILLICIT MARKET & MORE
10:45 MUSTER AT THE JUBILEE CLOCK
11:00 GRAND PARADE
What better way could there be to celebtrate the start of Sunday at the Weymouth Steampunk Christmas weekend than a Grand Parade?
In 2021 we started at the Jubilee Clock and paraded along the sea front to the merry-go-round at Alexandra Gardens. This year we will again be mustering at and setting off from the Jubilee Clock, but we will be taking a slightly longer route (but still only 0.6 mile) ending up at the White Hart in New Bond Street.
But what to do at the end of the Grand Parade?
Well don't tell anyone you heard about it here, but at the end of the Grand Parade we will be holding one of those markets that doesn't happen (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).
If you've been to one of those Steampunk markets that doesn't happen before (the kind that definitely won't be happening at the White Hart on New Bond Street at the end of the Grand Parade) then you will know all about what is (or isn't) involved already.
But if you're new to this (and definitely not a member of His Majesty's Constabulary) then you might like to check out the information about 'Illicit markets' in the 'FEATURES' section of the website or follow the link here.
Also on Sunday, Will Adams will be performing 'The Cold North Wind', a musical story of a dark Wizard that comes at Christmas to steal a child's soul to extend his own life... '
You will be able to see and hear Will perform live at Hope Square at 10 AM, 1 PM and 4 PM on Sunday 4 December, but meanwhile you can check out 'The Cold North Wind' on You Tube here.
Once you have worked up an appetite on the Grand Parade, listened to Will and enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the market that definitely won't be happening, there is plenty to explore in Weymouth, but of course it will only be a matter of time before your minds wander to the subject of Afternoon Tea and we can recommend both the Festive Afternoon Tea at the Royal Hotel and Santa's Sleigh Afternoon Tea at Nana Moon's Cafe Bar - see details for both below, but be sure to book in advance.
