A weekend of activities inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery attracted pulled in the crowds at Leeds Industrial Museum.
The Leeds Steampunk Market featured 50 stalls, exhibitions and live entertainment including a bird of prey flying display. There was also a vintage tearoom serving homemade cakes and tea. Leeds Steampunk Market, run by Jo and Si Burgoyne-Neal, has been going since October 2011 when it was held at Leftbank on Cardigan Road.
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction set in an alternative history of the 19th century where steam power has maintained mainstream usage.
