August 2013 (Leeds Central Library)

Really enjoyed this day, I think the fact that we were limited to one building meant things were a little more , 'intimate' and we got to know people a little better. x


Lovely to see all dressed up and enjoying themselves! Sad I couldn't stay longer, but the big legs are a bit of a bugger after a while... :D See you in October


Great day, thanks for organising Jo 


December 2014 (Thackray Museum)


Fantastic day today, any idea who the photographers are? Big well done for the organising!



March 2015 (Armley Mill)


Pottered around on Sunday, spent all my money, and had an excellent time despite the somewhat miserable weather... photos of the new hat and shirt to follow....



Wow guys what an awesome Steamskunk welcome......making the monkey come back again tomorrow.......



An amazing added bonus! You just never know what you'll see at a steampunk event! (Re: Wilfred)




June 2015 (Thwaite Mills)


thank you such a lovely day... smg.x



August 2015 (Leeds Central Library)


Fab event, thanks Si and Jo Lovely authors, so interesting to talk to them. Really great idea. Look forward to the next one!




October 2015 (Armley Mill)


A fun and interesting day at the Steampunk Market and the Museum. And we won on the raffle - yay! No men's footwear though - boo!



Wonderful day! Met lovely people! Thank you so much!!



Was there yesterday, awesome day



Attended yesterday rather than today. My very first event, not counting running in and out of Asylum. The Memsaab pooh poohed my purchase of a pith helmet though. Still time.



Just wanted to say thanks for an awesome day today (Saturday)! Was good to see a few familiar faces (Exhibitors and visitors) :)



Sat in a tearoom in an industrial museum watching a werewolf-thing in a corset having a biscuit dunking duel. Why is life so predictable?



December 2015 (Thackray Museum)


Had a great day today, cheers!



Great merchandise. Need to get me some medals! (Re: Captain Cumberpatch)



Enjoyed. Spent plenty of money... early Christmas presents. Looking forward to one at Armley Mills Museum

Had a lovely day here today, bought lots of beautiful things and chatted to a lot of beautiful people



This is the best jam I have EVER tasted! 



March 2016 (Moorside Mills, Bradford)


Loved the Market. We went on Saturday. Very friendly people. Would have loved to come back on the Sunday but there is no buses that run to the museum on a Sunday. Which is a shame as it seems that was the most busiest day looking at the photos. We'll be around for the next one.



What a pleasantly splendid surprise it was for my first visit to a Steampunk event. The stories that I had heard of burning at the stake, gauging of the eyes and hangings by your entrails for outsiders were totally untrue and a damn lie. Although I did come close to being splashed by a smoothie maker powered by a penny farthing.

Instead I found the people to be more than welcoming with some wonderful wares to be sold, including jams & jewellery, skulls & scripts, hats & coats, books & buns.

It was great to see so many people, both young and old coming together with a shared interest. It was like stepping back in time, taking a different path and then coming back to the future. It reminded me of my old punk days without the anger or the Goth days with bright outlook for the future.

I find the whole style of Victorian old and new so photogenic and I managed to get some great photos and some better friends.

I'm hooked now and I look forward to visiting many more Steampunk events in the near future, or should that be the past.



Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed Sunday. Bradford was our third LSM and by far the best... Great location and a good mix of traders, tho it would be nice to see the mix change a little - loved Albion Artefacts for example! And the time travelling tea tent too! Well done to you both! Good luck and hopefully see you at the next one?



Excellent event and our first market. Nice change of pace from the Railway Museum. Both Wonderful. Thanks from

Jacqui and Jim 


Well done Jo and Si, great day at Bradford industrial museum.



Loved the accidental change of venue guys good choice. Had a fantastic day at Bradford Mill - well worth a visit!



Thank you, Leeds Steampunk Market (Sun) 6th March, Had a brilliant day out.



I had a wonderful time as usual at LSM, I think my next visit will be the christmas one now (depends on how many weekends I can book off work this year), but I simply love LSM everytime.



So good we came 3 times :) loved it xxx



Hi everyone. I visited the event today and I want to say how awesome it was!



Had a great day out with Nikki, our first time out in costume! Thanks for all the encouragement and Nikki has a great new hat!

Got some great accessories too, loved the medal Jo!



Thank you everyone for all the interesting stalls. I had a wonderful day walking round and buying some bits and pieces. Everyone was really friendly and the museum itself is a wonderful place.



Wow that was an amazing event, thank you!




April/May 2016 (Bagshaw Museum)


Amazing location x



I loved this place!




July 2016 (Middleton Railway)


Excellent day out thank you xx



I'll second that, walked out with less than £2.00 in my pocket!




October 2016 (Armley Mill)


I went on Sunday and had a really great time. This is the 3rd steampunk event I've been to and it was by far the best! There were so many stalls and so many interesting items for sale. - My purse feels a lot lighter now! Everyone was so nice and chatty. It was great to see so many people dressed up too. I took my friend with me and he has never been to anything like this before, he had a great time and has now got more into steampunk! Thanks to everyone who set this up and all the sellers. I look forward to seeing you all again at some point..



I'd just like to thank Jo and Si for an amazing day as always. I'd also like to thank Damon and Su for helping me out with the Disabled Parking and the staff at Armley Mills for all their help getting me around. Thanks again for an amazing day :)



My first steampunk market & had a great time. Can't wait for the next one!



Today was my 1st Steam punk event & all I can say was I really enjoyed it. All the stall holders were lovely. Had my daughter with her 2 month old son plus my other grandson & even he enjoyed it esp seeing the pirates that were there. Looking forward to trying the jam I bought.



Just back from the event and a big thanks to the organisers - loads of amazing stalls and a fantastic day.



Jo - congratulations on such a charming event at Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills - Leeds Steampunk Market - and thanks to all stallholders and visitors for their help and info ...




December 2016 (Thackray Museum)


Another great day at the LSM event today and for all those of you missed make sure you check it out and a big thanks to Jo and all the other traders for making this possible




March 2017 (Moorside Mills, Bradford)


Had a lovely day and collected my gorgeous Wilkinson boarding gun and holster from the brilliantly clever Cockett & Pugh but Dammit he must be using mind bending techniques as every time I see him I buy something. How though could I resist the gun at the top so very well made. Thank you Sir this Gentleman is now well armed and prepared to defend any Ladies in distress he finds



Had a fab day at Leeds Steampunk Markets, if you are not sure if you are going tomorrow, make the effort and go...it is definitely worth it




May 2017 (Abbey House Museum)


Had a fantastic day today! We've met so many lovely people and are looking forward to tomorrow :)

Sarah Jayne 



July 2017 (Middleton Railway)


Amazing atmosphere,wonderful people and the effort that went into steam punk attire looked fantastic.


July 2018 (Middleton Railway)

I'm full of admiration for anyone with the stamina to wear a furry costume in this heat.



September 2018 (Calderdale Industrial Museum) 

It really was a wonderful day out. My daughter and I were incredibly impressed with the traders and with the museum. The way the stalls merged in with the exhibits in the museum was excellent. - and the lovely little touches such as the street magician and owls were such a treat :) I can only begin to imagine what a feat it was to organise and pull off such an event - Fabulously well done! I can't wait for future ones :)



Such a lovely museum and lovely staff. Lots of public... We had a lovely day meeting old and new traders


Really enjoyed the market today !


Me too..............x 


We thought this museum was brilliant & it definitely needs to become a regular LSM venue so we can keep up with the machinery updates.


Really enjoyed it 😊🎩 Bought some great stuff and chatted to some great people. Very interesting demos and machinery. Great venue (& on the doorstep for us!!)


Loved this museum, had a fab time


March 2019 (Abbey House Museum)

 Thanks for a fantastic day out on Saturday! The venue was gorgeous and actually seeing everyone in action has spurred us on to be there in May. 

C & F

Great day as always at Leeds steampunk market - looking forward to the next one! 




Fabulous day! Thank you to everyone who made it so special....you are all totally splendid as is the star of the event Leeds' wonderful Central Library


Thanks to all the great people who came and said Hi, buy my books and listened to me read dressed as a giant fly. All in all a damn fine day



What a great location ...very well picked Jo :0) x



I had one of the best LSM days ever today! Thank you soooo much to everyone who stopped by my stall. You're all awesome



Had another amazing day today, thank you, Jo and Si, it's been great meeting all you lovely people again and a lot of new faces as well. Hope you all have a great day tomorrow. x x



Thanks for letting me trade today!!!! I'd love to do the next one, had a really good day x



Just got back and wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and Si for an amazing weekend.

By far the best organised event we have attended so far. Also a massive thank you for where our stall was placed. We took almost double what we have taken at any other event. And thank you for taking my personal needs into account.

We would love to attend all of your events we can make. So if, when you've managed to sit and have five minutes, you wouldn't mind sending me a list of your future events I can let you know what events we will want to attend.

Once again, many thanks;



I'd just like to say thanks to Si and Jo for having us supply pizzas at Bradford at the weekend, Sarah and I had a great time and it was great to meet and speak to a lot of you. The positive feedback means a great deal to us and we will hopefully see you again in the near future. Thanks again!



I would like to say how much I appreciate your organising. The info is always helpful and detailed, and I like the fact that you insist on PLI (not everywhere checks) and that you try not to have too many people selling the same stuff!



We had a great time today even if it was a little cold, great place to launch my new look stall. Met some lovely people and had great feedback



Amazing weekend!!! So well organised by Jo and Si... couldn't have asked for more!!!

Will see you all at the next one!!!



Another rip roaring success on Saturday in Bradford, such a lovely venue and the machinery working is always fab. Big thank you to Jo & Si and their team for all the hard work and to Mikey for the tea and cake. It is always great to catch up with the usual suspects and meet new folks. Big thanks again x



Had an awesome event. Huge thank you to everyone who came and especially to those who bought something. Looking forward to the next one.



Brilliant day! Bravo everyone involved.



Was a great market, really enjoyed seeing people, great venue, bought some fab things! Well done, you deserve your pizza xxx



Attended the market today as a trader for the first time. Had a good enjoyable day. Thank you to Jo and Si and all the lovely customers who purchased from me. A thank you also to those who took a business card and showed so much interest in my handmade pieces

Thanks for last weekend I really enjoyed my first experience of Steampunk, the costumes were amazing!


Many thanks for the organising the LSM weekend at Halifax, and a big thank you to all the staff that helped everyone too.


It was lovely to meet all you amazing steampunks today. So many wonderful costumes and creations, so much talent! Thanks Jo and the museum too.


We had a fab time... brought myself some lovely new clothing for my new wardrobe cannot wait to wear them!


We loved this one! We had our best weekend and woke up to new customer orders that will keep me busy for sometime to come. The museum and it's volunteers were great and the atmosphere was rather good too. It's my favourite venue so far.


Loved it and did really well thanks so much xx


Myself and Janet would like to say a massive thank to you for our first trading experience. We received such a warm and friendly welcome from you, Si and all the traders. This steadied any nervousness we had, and we soon relaxed and enjoyed the whole atmosphere of it all.The museum staff were also very attentive and friendly, the whole experience was even better than we could have imagined. Even our pitch was fab, suited us down to the ground outside the undertakers! 

The whole experience has given us the confidence and encouragement to do it again and we would love to be considered for the event in July.


I wanted to say thank you for letting me trade at the market this weekend, I had a brilliant time and it was invaluable to get feedback for my ideas for uni.

I can’t remember if I signed up for the next one but if there is space I’d definitely like to do it again!

I hope you have a restful week, thanks again.


Thank you so much for last weekend. We really enjoyed the event and thought the museum was fabulous! Met some lovely people too! We’d love a stand at your Bradford event if you can fit us in please.


I can’t get over how great the day was. Hats off to you too for organising something so fun and interesting. It was like a day out too!!


Thank you for all you efforts last weekend, I enjoyed the weekend very much and a great venue.


Awesome fair last week. Really loved the atmosphere -  I can’t get over how great the day was. Hats off to you too for organising something so fun and interesting. It was like a day out too!!

We had a wonderful time at the last market. You all made us feel so welcome, especially you. Business was slow at the market but we received lots of business from referrals which made it all worthwhile. 

N & K

Enjoyed Bradford in amongst the machines and we had a good neighbour in Steve. Thanks for organising!


Thanks again for a fantastic event at Bradford thoroughly enjoyed myself.


We would love to trade again - we loved the experience!


Everyone I met was lovely and it was a nice experience


I really enjoyed the whole feel, thanks for letting me be to part of your market!



 Thanks to all, the great, the good, the charming and the wickedly disreputable (we like those especially) who dropped in for a spot of  tea...well to watch us drink it; but that how it goes. (Not sure how the vodka got to be in the gin bottle but that’s another story)

Until next time from

The Time Travelling Tea Tent

I got bronze on my first ever joust :D




Thanks for having us, we loved mingling and chatting to the 'punkers.

Our members who saw your set up for the first time were most impressed and we took just over TWO HUNDRED pounds in donations and tombola.

We also got some great ideas for your event in July...not least of all how to run the tea room!

Thank you once again for your support and the generosity of your traders in their donations.

John Linkins, Middleton Railway.


Pete and I had a great time over last weekend, thank you so much for inviting the Mercury Phoenix Trust to Steampunk. Such a lovely bunch of people and so talented, the costumes were amazing and very entertaining . It was good to talk to a different group of people about the Trust as awareness is the key to the never ending fight against HIV/AIDS.

We could have spent a lot more than we did but we do have a beautiful clock to remind us of our weekend and plenty of preserves to keep us going.

Pete & Maureen, The Mercury Phoenix Trust
