Victorian Steampunk Society


This is the website of the Victorian Steampunk Society (VSS)  We are a voluntary  organisation formed to promote steampunk as a genre, community and art form in the UK.  We take the best of the Victorian Age and mix it with a healthy dash of modern creativity to create a fascinating and entertaining world. 

  The VSS both facilitate and supports a range of events and activities for the UK Steampunk community and are always happy to respond to enquries from organisations looking to learn more about the genre.  We also organise and run the Premier UK  Steampunk festival "Weekend at the Asylum" 

We should point out however that we are a not-for-profit society and are staffed by volunteers.  It can sometimes take a little while to get a reply.
