Enjoying a real winter and selling lots of books on the weekends .Yourself ?
Hullo Professor! I hope you're keeping well.
G'day , Duke .
I helped with running the Melbourne Steampump events for a few years. If you're encouraging interstate visitors, then recommendations for close by (and inexpensive) accommodation would go down well.
For the event itself, depends on what you're going for. Limited exhibitions can be great. Burlesque is great. We had one guy demonstrate a full shave with a strait razor. Bareknuckle boxing or maybe some guys from 19th century military re-enactment might be good. If you can get yourself a Tesla Coil that would be a crowd pleaser! A good photo booth is a must too I think.Of course a nice steampunk nightclub might be a good way to finish out the evening.
Awesome ideas! I'd love your details Ged - I think we became friends so you can message me?
That's completely understandable Professor. I was previously in the UK where there was a whole lotta Steampunk so more people to share the load :)
Thinking on it further, given both Milk Chocolate and Ice-cream were Victorian-era inventions; including those as booths would be a treat. Getting someone like Nitrogenie so you'd have liquid nitrogen created ice-cream would add a delightful mad scientist feel. That's just IMO.
People's lives are getting busier and running an event gets stressful. After three years in a row, given none of us are professional event runners and all of us have day jobs/ families, we need a break :)
That said, there's nothing stopping others from starting up another annual charity ball - we'd love to attend.
Laurel, I have had very intense experience at putting on an event here (Brisbane) which was very successful. Filled the auditorium and actually made MONEY! Four years ago now, I think it was. Prior to 'Steamfest', anyway.
I actually have a diploma in event management - which I know isn't as useful as actual (recurrent) experience, I know, but ... well, if you want to pick my brains go right ahead. Oh go on! They're not that nasty!!Let me know if you want an email address or ph. number,
Why is it the last one?
@Karen: Dangit, poor timing there. Yup it's the last one, until someone else picks up the (slightly smoking) gauntlet.
@Laural: Tickets are sold out or nearly sold out; so you'll have to try for tickets soon :). Nice work getting a steamlebrity.
