Aethercon tickets now on sale!

Wellington’s big steampunk weekend is rapidly gathering momentum.  Or building steam, to purloin an Abney Park title.

Book here for Aethercon on 22 November, and here for the Aethercon Ball in the evening (erotica readings? I say, Vicar!).

To reiterate the programme for the weekend:

  • Thursday 20 November (8pm): Steampunk cocktails at the Hawthorn Lounge, 82 Tory Street – no bookings; just arrive in your glory.  It’s not easy to find, but email Capital! Steampunk if you get lost
  • Friday 21 November (7.30pm): Shakespeare’s The Tempest at the Gryphon Theatre, 22 Ghuznee Street.  Book soon; details here
  • Saturday 22 November (10am – 4.30pm): Aethercon Steampunk Convention
  • Saturday 22 November (8pm – late): Aethercon Ball
  • Sunday 23 November (11am): The Hunting of the Snark – a non-strenuous stroll round the Botanic Gardens to the accompaniment of Lewis Carroll’s wonderful nonsense ‘agony in eight fits’, read by Capital! Steampunk members.  No bookings; meet at the top of the Cable Car and we’ll go from there, probably ending up at the Rose Garden tearooms for a spot of luncheon (the scones are excellent).  Note: this one is weather-dependent, but we should know on the Saturday if it’s likely to go ahead

You can sleep on Monday …
