Once again the cogs are whirling and the highly popular Steampunk and Victorian festival is chugging its way back to Morecambe this week.

A Splendid Day Out is open to all and takes place on Friday October 9 and runs until October 11.

The festival opens with Birthrite, a modern four piece guitar band with an old age vintage feel, this is free entry at The Royal Hotel on the prom.

The Platform will again host the wondrous market filled with talented artists.

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

This US based performer mixes patter, Victorian subject matter and danceable funk backbeat.

Adding “music hall” audience participation and stand-up comedy to his act.

Also on the bill is the wonderfully named The Filthy Spectacula, take a bit of gypsy punk, add a bit of dark cabaret, a hint of piracy and you have the world that they inhabit.

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

The band uses a ‘carnival blend’ of live ukulele and electric guitar with a twist of orchestral instruments to provide a very theatrical and cabaret-like sound.
