The Ministry of Steampunk

 The World's Leading Steampunk Facilitators


Sanctuary is both a virtual online event and a real life gathering at Kelham hall near Newark over the weekend of 28th-30th August.

Of course the pandemic has hit hard but steampunk is all about shared creativity and enjoyment. Sanctuary is all set to inject a little steampunk back into your life as safely as we possibly can.


A whole series of premieres are set to automatically reveal an entire festival on Friday 28th through to Sunday 30th of August on our youtube channel.

Head over there now, subscribe and browse. You can even set yourself reminders of films you dont want to miss.

During the weekend there will also be live feeds and features on our Facebook Page


Artisan Market - Grand Picnic - Promenade - Features

Sanctuary Live is two days for dressing to impress and strutting your stuff in the stunning grounds of Kelham Hall.

Your safety is our primary concern so we expect everyone to wear masks in enclosed spaces (e.g. toilets) use santizer etc and practice good social distancing. steampunks are impeccably polite so we dont expect thsi to be a problem.

Our focus is a widely dispersed market of some of the best steampunk makers and traders in the UK but please bring a picnic to enjoy the full day and be sure to dress well with the delightful backdrop of the hall for your photographs.   There will be display features and exhibits as we are able to offer under UK guidelines.

Advance tickets are essential to ensure safe capacity and track and trace. Prices are £10 each with  under 16s going free.
