The Victorian, steampunk-styled spectacle of costume, dance, music and cabaret is back with another massive bash of curious vaudeville, vintage DJing with electro-swing and showtunes on the decks, interactive theatre and eccentric, dressed-up characters across multiple rooms. This time it's on a sci-fi tip, with anarchic acts including rockbilly chick and 'Britani's Got Talent' contestant Beatrix Von Bourbon, Howard Read from children's TV programme 'Little Howard's Big Question', although he'll be doing a distinctly grown-up show tonight, and live acts Sam And The Womp and The Correspondents. Plus DJs jiving to vintage jazz, electro-swing, rock 'n' roll and showtunes; make-up in the Happy Slap Boutique; improvised sci-fi storytelling and loads more. Think nerdy and dress up for this one, folks, and maybe even have your photo taken with a giant alien tripod. Ooh err.
