Best dressed at the Lincoln Steampunk Festival

The largest Steampunk festival in the world returned to Lincoln over the Bank Holiday weekend – its 10th birthday.

Thousands of spectacularly dressed enthusiasts brought futuristic inventions together with Victorian, Edwardian, wild west and fantasy themes to create a period of history that never was.

Even Batman and Jack Sparrow made an appearance.

Steampunks enjoyed exclusive shows, demonstrations, rides, art and drama in the shadow of Lincoln Cathedral and castle.

Check out some of the best dressed festival goers.
