Event description
The pumping station's annual Steampunk event returns on July 10th/11th, 10.30am-4pm, with live music, stalls, competitions and activities.

About this event

Covid-19 update: You may socialise in a group of up to 30 people outside and a group 6 (or 2 households) inside the buildings. Masks must be worn when inside the buildings and remember to follow social distancing guidelines. There will be no guided tours at this event.

Papplewick's ever popular Steampunk Weekend returns with entertainment from Victor & The Bully, Madam Misfit, The Cogkneys, The Trent Navigation Sea Shanty Crew and Greg Chapman steampunk magician and juggler. There will also be a steampunk market on the main lawns, tea duelling and facial hair competitions plus, blaster and robot painting sessions with The Cog Detective and Tim the Robot Guy.

The James Watt beam engines, that once pumped water from out of the sandstone for the citizens of Nottingham, will be in full steam fired by our Lancashire boiler along with regular demonstrations of the rare Robey winding engine from Linby Colliery. Our resident Blacksmith will be working the forge and the Papplewick steam roller will be in attendance.

Light refreshments will be available from the pop-up café. We are unable to say at this current time whether tours of the underground reservoir will be available until further details about the relaxation of Covid restrictions are announced in mid-June.

Despite the continued presence of Covid-19 the museum has undertaken a variety of measures to ensure visitor safety during the visit including site-wide availability of hand sanitizer, one way systems, contactless payment for refreshments and timed entry through the visitor gate. Please remember that masks MUST be worn inside the buildings.
