Science fiction fans flocked to Llangollen over the weekend to enjoy a steampunk spectacular.
The ‘Cogwarts Steampunk Spectacular’ saw fans of the science fiction genre – which combines history with steam powered technology – descend on the town on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Activities included a ride on a steam train from Llangollen Railway, a close-up magic act by Miss Sylvia Sceptre, a performance by Erwyd the Steampunk Jester, a ‘bizarre bazaar’ at Llangollen Pavilion featuring a steampunk market, live entertainment, a miniature hot air balloon flying inside the arena and more.
The weekend also included a ‘grand steam ball’ on Saturday evening which included a performance by Professor Elemental.
Organiser Fiona Maher – known as ‘Tink’ – told the Leader that the event received a lot of interest locally as well as further afield, with stall holders coming from as far as France to be part of the activities.
