Haworth Steampunk Weekend 2024: Steampunk fans head to the home of the Brontë sisters

A quaint Yorkshire village saw hundreds of people dressed up in an array of flamboyant and colourful costumes this bank holiday as Haworth’s Steampunk Weekend returned for its 12th anniversary. People from across the UK headed to the home of the Brontës to experience ghost tours, tribal dancing, a fun dog show, crown bowling, stalls and train rides.

The event is dubbed as the ‘biggest charity event’ of its kind in the UK where people dress up, inspired by Science Fiction literature.

The event which spread throughout the historic village raised vital funds for the Sue Ryder's Manorlands Hospice.
