SLIDESHOW: Full Steampunk ahead as weird and wonderful festival comes to Doncaster

The sights and sounds of Steampunk came to Doncaster for two whole days for a feast of colour, costumes and creativity.

The two day event, held at a variety of locations across the town, saw steampunk enthusiasts pulling on all their finery for a promenade of the parish, as well as taking part in talent contests, literature, photo workshops and a wide range of other events, most of which took place at the Doncaster School for the Deaf.
