A festival celebrating all things steampunk comes to Maidstone this weekend.
The celebration of the cult science fiction genre, which embraces history and steam-powered machinery, will have films, activities and accessories and fashion to buy.
Maidstone Museum, together with Great Kentspectations, will be hosting the Steampunk Muggleton Village with H P Lovecraft Film Festival on Saturday, July 14.
The HP Lovecraft Film Festival celebrates the work of the gothic horror author who found fame posthumously for his work in the genre.
The festival will be showing a selection of movies including Call of Cthulhu, The Terrible Old Man, The Narrative of Victor Karloch and HP Lovecraft comedy short by Lackey and Johnson.
There will also be family activities on offer.
There will be music from Time Machine, along with stalls to browse and visitors can explore H P Lovecraft’s Travelling Museum, watch the Starcrossed Fairies and go gaming in the Glassroom. Children can follow Spike’s Steampunk Trail to claim a badge prize and there will be drop-in craft sessions too.
For those who would like to try their hand at belly dancing, Lady Charlotte will be about to guide them through a 45-minute workshop, or for those with an interest in magic, step into the mysterious world of Chris Benkin who uses secret techniques which might leave you believing in the sixth sense.
There’s a small fee for some activities but most are free. For more details go to maidstonemuseum.org
