Event Description

A satirical extravaganza about China, Britain, imperialism and drugs in the 19th century in poetry & music. See narco-capitalists & Chinese lawmakers slug it out in verse, take part in a poetry slam, and watch the weirdest tea ceremony ever.

With music from legendary writer Charles Shaar Murray; former Flying Lizards singer Deborah Evans-Stickland performing her mega-hit "Money"; DJ Zoe "Lucky Cat" Baxter; and Gary Lammin of The Bermondsey Joyriders in the weirdest tea ceremony you've ever seen.

Have your photograph taken in your finest steampunk paraphernalia on stage by Mrs Sukey Parnell, who has exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, and maybe see it displayed on the interweb.

Written and hosted by cultural provocateur Anna Chen.

Just Thought I Would Say Hello

Well I just started here so I guess it would be good to introduce myself.  My name is John and I'm from Texas.  Been into Steampunk for about 10 years now and like most things that are addictive its been my constant thought through out the last 10 years.  I am currently working on a novel set right about the time of the Romanov's demise.  I do most of my writing on either 2 1920's L.C.

Currently working on a Steampunk Intrigue novel

Hello everyone.  The novel I am currently working on has a little bit of mad science, political intrigue and of course sketchy figures.  Can't really reveal much just yet since it is still in the research phase.  Havn't been able to work on it in a couple weeks due to work and it is real hard for me to get into the writing with a noisy background and on a computer.  I've always kind of preferred the old manual typewriters and a fountain pen myself.  So I guess till I get back from work it will…See More
