Feline & Strange

All the way from Germany we are pleased to Welcome Feline and Strange to A Splendid Day Out. Find them In The Victorian Marquee throughout the weekend.

Literally mind-boggling Singer Feline Lang and her alien cabaret: Powerful variety from kitsch to art, rage to party. Well known as opera and tango singer, she sings her own songs in a uniquely dramatic style. The theatrical show of the Berlin based 2piece (vocs with piano, cello, computer, and percussion) brings to mind 60ies spy stories and Science Fiction movies, or vintage revues – remixed in an underground club in Berlin’s 1980ies. And: Feline’s burning voice and fiery performance in ball gown and circus corset, plus the eternal bickering with her 1st officer. Collateral damage included.

Gary Nicholls – The Imaginarium

Meticulously crafted by Gary Nicholls, a British photographic conceptual artist, comes the first book of his conceptualised neo-gothic fairy story eponymously based on the Victorian fairground attractions of The Imaginarium. ‘The Imaginarium’ tells an intricate, fantastical, dark but ultimately beautiful steampunk story through the unique medium of fine art images. Four years in the making, Nicholls’ creation is so much more than just a book – it’s an adventure through the power of art that simultaneously tells an epic, powerful story readers will be immersed in from page one.
Gary Nicholls has agreed to join us at A Splendid Day Out where you will have the opportunity to purchase this magnificent creation and much more.

A Splendid Day Out – Receives Funding

A Splendid Day Out is very happy, that Morecambe Town Council saw fit to award us sufficient financial resources to make our festival one of the largest in Morecambe, and the 2nd biggest Steampunk Festival in the UK.

The money will go to providing increased high quality infrastructure for a major expansion of what is becoming a popular local and national event. We were disappointed, however, that although following all guidance and format for our application the Town Council didn’t accept our plans for a partnership, at no risk to them, which would have been beneficial to the whole town.

That said, the funding is more than welcome in our fourth year as we prepare to take the next step in making A Splendid Day Out a ‘go to’ event in the Steampunk community nationally, and with the local population of the town.
