Taking Lincoln Castle to a time that never was - the largest steampunk festival in the world returns to Lincoln!

The Asylum Steampunk Festival is the largest and longest running steampunk festival in the Solar System, attracting participants from around the globe for a weekend full of art, literature, music, fashion and simple good fun!

As we have additional activity within the Castle grounds, this weekend there will be a small charge in place at the Castle gates.  Alternatively purchase a Castle day ticket which gives access to the grounds, Victorian Prison and Medieval Wall Walk - providing the perfect photo opportunity to showcase your 2023 outfit!

The Castle day and grounds only tickets give access to the market and content within the public area of the event only.  Lincoln Castle is one of the hosts of The Asylum Steampunk Festival which takes place within the City of Lincoln.  The Festival, organised by the Ministry of Steampunk, includes exclusive events for attendees that have purchased a ticket directly from the organiser. For further detail surrounding these tickets and the weekends programme.
