Eskbank Steampunk returns in 2016 with amusements, delicious victuals and merriment for all.
This year Eskbank Steampunk will provide a plethora of experiences for you to participate in. Compete in the noble arts of tea and parasol duelling. Test your talents at croquet, badminton and quoits. Explore the penny farthing display. Get your hands on the Eskbank House collection of blacksmith tools, saddlery and gadgets. Add your punked up gun to the Lithgow Living History Firearms display, dating back to 1720. Pose with Possum our Locomotive, the Pioneer Roller or Buffalo Pitts Steam Engine. And have your photo taken by professional photographers in our Victorian Antique Furniture Display.
The Ladies of the Vale will once again be providing a magnificent High Tea for your enjoyment. Sit and sup on their delicious cakes, scones and savouries while our Wandering Minstrels entertain you. Then browse the specialty Steampunk Markets which will be in the Courtyard for you to purchase a momento of your day.
Most importantly arrive in your most splendiferous attire to turn Eskbank Steampunk into a true Victorian Village of the future. There will be a range of prizes for costume and accessories culminating with the crowning of the King and Queen of Eskbank.
The finale of the day will be the inaugural Great Eskbank Tea Pot Race. Bring along your teapot to compete or cheer for your favourite beautified vehicles as they negotiate the obstacle course and drag race each other to be the Eskbank Tea Pot Champion for 2016.
