June 2013

Just arrived home from Armley Mill Victorian (secretly Steampunk) Fair, lovely to see everyone, drive home was pretty nerve wracking in the horrendous downpour. Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye to some of you, but we couldn't find people again. Very excited about my new acquisition from Adam McSkelly - McSkelly Leathers, a lovely hand made map tube. Hopefully will acquire more stuff next time.

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

Alexandra


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

James


Great day, thanks for organising Jo

Onne


Loved it. Never been to Thackray before but it seemed well thought through and planned. Well done x

I thought it was a particularly good atmosphere today too - great fun! I had a brilliant time today! Thank you, Jo and Si, for all your hard work in organising it. xx 

I thought the museum seemed like a good space for LSM and they do amazing chocolate brownies in the cafΓ© - think I consumed a whole week's worth of calories in one brownie! :)

Thanks to everyone who made possible

Visitor perspective: Excellent bright, welcoming and interesting venue with plenty of modestly priced car parking. I like the combo of museum and market - makes for a full day out. Cafe very good. Great to be welcomed with a smile from the door staff and ushered in. For togs (and historians) having the cemetery opposite is a bonus. Superb merchandise, varied and consistently high quality, offered by friendly traders. Stalls well laid out in rooms of differing character. Loved it.

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....

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!

Simon 

 

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

Lucy 

 

Was there yesterday, awesome day

Trina 

 

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.

Nobel 

 

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

Tony 

 

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?

March 2016 (Bradford Industrial Museum)

 

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.

Rhi


Glad to hear LSM will return to Bradford. Really like the venue. 

Liz


Great venue, we really enjoyed saturday, well done you two. 

Leigh


congratulations Si and Jo Dee !!

Adrienne


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.

Mark 

 

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?

Rob 

 

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.

Steven 

 

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

Rose 

 

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

Brian 

 

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.

Francine 

 

So good we came 3 times :) loved it xxx

Jennifer 

 

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!

Mark

October 2016 (Leeds Industrial Museum)

 

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..

Hayley 

 

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 :)

Tony 

 

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

Vanessa 

 

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.

Jo 

 

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

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

Stephen 

 

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

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 :)

Jenny


Lovely time had on Sunday, friendly people who were helpful and gave good advice about putting things together. I was mesmerised by the effort put in to some fab outfits too! Thank you.

Samantha

 

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

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

Helen


December 2018 (Bradford Industrial Museum)

Always a great event.. very friendly traders plus entertainments too. The venues are really interesting with lots to take the eye, no time for boredom. Attending any of the events leads to coming home with a surfeit of fresh ideas.

Went to the one late last year and loved it. (Written in May 2019)

Tony


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.

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

I had so much fun today at Leeds steampunk market Red heart I adore steampunk and my god I adore this corset, I naturally have a very tiny waist but nothing ever comes in enough to show it off… 

Cassandra

Had a great time at the market. Always great for picking up some interesting and inspirational ideas.

David


Went today was good . It’s like a mini Castle Museum York.

Michael


Loved the event on Saturday. Had a great time, met new friends and spent dosh. The message re weapons didn't seem to get through to some I saw one bloke with a sword strapped to his back. Not sure how this can be addressed but its a message we all need to pass on I think. Otherwise a fab event and looking forward to Mays :-) Thank you for organising x

John


Spoiled a bit by the weather but turned out a good day for us photographers that attended

We had a great time on Sunday, met lots of friends, made some new friends and spent a few quid. Nice to see some great new traders as well as the usual suspects. 

A great day at the Leeds Steampunk Market event at Abbey House museum. We met some lovely people, chatted with friends and completely missed some friends we wanted to meet up with.

Really enjoyed it & looking forward to next year. I spent a small fortune! Also got fingers crossed for Armley as we have missed attending there.

Elaine


The reason why I and family almost didn’t come was because of Coronavirus. I’m on immunosuppressive drugs. Have a bad immune system anyway and have sever asmtha. However I wanted to risk it! I’m glad I did as I know I can’t make the next event in May and anything can now happen with Coronavirus getting worse.
