The Ministry of Steampunk are the World's leading Steampunk facilitators.


Founded in 2008 as the Victorian Steampunk Society we are the creators of Weekend at the Asylum - the World's largest and longest running Steampunk Festival. "The Asylum" celebrated its tenth year in 2018 with over 100,000 people visiting the event in Lincoln over the course of the August Bank Holiday weekend.


When we began as the V.S.S. few people had heard of steampunk hence our inclusion of the word "Victorian" in our title to give people an idea of what they might expect.  Now as we enter our second decade Steampunk is widely known and appreciated so we are proudly stepping forward as "Those folks from the Ministry".


Over the last decade we have organised literally thousands of features and events from flashmobs to huge art exhibitions and parades. Workshops, classes, music gigs, parties, readings, flashmobs, comedy nights, film shows, fundraisers, gaming sessions, lectures, dances, markets, competions, academic conferences, camps, photo sessions, school visits and even zombie and dinosaur runs.  Our aim has always been simple. Create steampunk features which are accessible and fun.

2019 has been a vintage year for steampunk and the VSS has only one event left this year.  Naturally we are working to make it a special one.  2020 is set to be an astounding year however as we offer new events and launch the Department for the Apocalypse.
