The Art Of Being Splendid
Steampunks of the British Empire
Steampunk has a thriving community. This is a guide to the steampunk groups and societies I know about. In no particular order.
GSS - Gosport Steampunk Society
Being Splendid by the SeaThe GSS meet on the first Tuesday of the month in The Fighting Cocks, Alverstoke. Their latest adventures can be found on Facebook. They run a free steampunk festival each year and the pictures can be viewed on their web site.
We charge no fees and are a non-profit organisation, which is as it should be. We raise money for charity whenever and wherever we can.
H.A.T.S - Hythe Area Time-travelling SteampunksA Splendid group of convivial peeps active in the Hythe, Waterside and New Forest whom just love dressing up and promenading to re-imagine the most incredible Victorian era of engineering and prolific futuristic authors. We have no pretence, we are not competitive or judgemental in anyway towards our fellow Steampunk associated societies around our region, country or overseas, WE are simply Splendid with no politics. We have grown our fledgling local group organically with like-minded people. We are not about numbers, we are about an association of enjoyment and conviviality.
H.A.T.S meet up when the mood takes them, occasionally in Seashells, sometimes on the historic pier, and othertimes in the marina. Find out where they are next on Facebook
Steamcosies - Southampton Steampunk SocietySteamcosies was set up with the aim of welcoming like-minded people into the inclusive community of Steampunk in the Southampton postcode area, for irregular convivials/meetups/shenanigans in good company.
