This on the Saturday only with medals for winner and 2nd place (gold and silver) and two bronze medals for the semi final  pair of runners up.
Captain Cumberpatch's Curious Creations donates the medals for the prizewinners and ones also for the Coffee Jousting Beanmasters (the host).
.
There will be tabletop wargaming on both days upstairs in the board room.

.
The gorgeous 1920's cinema on the 2nd floor (that's one down from the entrance level!) will be showing various steampunk films - titles to be confirmed. Each film is around 90 minutes long and will be shown at 11.30 and 2pm each day.
Information about the films and anything else can be found here:

.
Don't forget, if you attend on the Saturday, retain your ticket as it will gain you free admission on the Sunday - worthwhile as the traders won't be the same on both days as around 1/3 only do one day.
.
There will be 50 traders on two floors which will not be all the same people on both days.
.
There will be a tombola run to raise money for a named charity which all the traders will be donating to.
.
A vintage tearoom will be there for the weekend selling lovely homemade cake and cuppas as well as a hot food vendor or two. (tbc). Plus we may have a pub again!
.
Don't forget you need to pay admission to the museum itself as you will be able to see all the exhibitions there as well. If you come along on the Saturday, retain your admission receipt as it will gain you free entry on the Sunday.
Customers will be paying normal admission to the Industrial Museum itself to be able to access the traders as you will be mixed in with the whole building, the displays and the layout. 
.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome at this museum, both in the buildings and out in the grounds. Please do keep an eye on your pet at all times so that they do not "mark" anywhere, be it the walls of the building or a trader's tablecloth. Also ensure you have the necessary poop bags/tissues/wet wipes etc to clean up any "accidents".
.
Also please be aware there are no cash point machines on the site - the nearest one would be if you walked back up to Town Street or over the foot bridge to Cardigan Fields and there is one in the wall of Hollywood Bowl which charges you for the privilege* (* Or there used to be!).
.
You can get to Armley Mills by getting on a number 15 bus from the town centre. 
*Check with Metroline in case this has changed!*
.

HOW TO GET HERE
Bus
The number 15 bus operates between Leeds train station and Leeds Industrial Museum. There is a bus stop just outside the main doors of the train station in Leeds centre and  the number 15 bus drops you off opposite the carpark of Armley Mill on Canal Road. 
Bus numbers 33, 34, 35, 60, 508 and 757 travel from the city centre to the Vue Cinema complex on Kirkstall Road. Access is available behind the complex over the footbridge.

Rail
The nearest train station is Burley Park which is a 1 mile walk from the museum. Leeds train station is 1.6 miles away.

Parking
Leeds Industrial Museum is located just two miles out of the city centre on Canal Road, off the main A65 road to Kirkstall. Free on-site parking is available and is a 1 minute walk from the entrance.

PLEASE NOTE
Since confirming this event, the dates and route for the Tour De Yorkshire have now been announced.
Yes, you guessed it, the route ends in Leeds this same weekend. 
The cycle route comes into Leeds from the North West, goes past Kirkstall Abbey then takes Burley Road into Leeds.
So this shouldn't cause too much of a problem getting to us, just go around the outskirts of Leeds via the southernmost part.
