A Splendid Day Out on Morecambe promenade

The promenade was packed out at the weekend as steam punks entered the town for the second time this year for A Splendid Day Out.

Many people turned up to witness the highly popular Steampunk and Victorian festival on Friday October 9-11.

The festival opened with Birthrite, a modern four piece guitar band with an old age vintage feel, at The Royal Hotel.

Saturday night at The Hothouse hosted the clockmaker’s extravaganza, featuring the Steam Funk’ stylings of Montague Jacques Fromage.

The Filthy Spectacula also entertained crowds.

From the depths of South East London Victor and the Bully also performed on Sunday.

One of the organisers, Rob Bracewell, said: “Steampunk’s magnificence returned to Morecambe this weekend with the fourth A Splendid Day Out at The Platform. Again the town was graced by magnificently attired ladies and gentlemen, promenading, taking tea and having a spiffing time. Two musical events supported the market and mayhem, held at the Royal Bar and The Hothouse. Both houses rocked and the warm up event hosted by The Royal was fantastic.”

A Splendid Day Out is supported by Morecambe Town Council and is firmly in both the local event calendar and the national Steampunk events list.
