STEAMPUNK NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS 30th DECEMBER 2016 - 2nd JANUARY 2017                                

The Kings Hall, Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel

Thanks to football, snooker and King Richard III, the city of Leicester is currently the “place to be”, so why should we shun the trend!

This festive season the Victorian Steampunk Society invite you to join them for a most splendid New Year celebration in the historic city of Leicester.

We have secured exclusive use of the 4* Mercure Leicester, The Grand Hotel where Victorian charm meets modern comfort in Leicester city centre.
