A host of activities were on offer throughout the weekend including tank rides on the beach, entertainment from one man band Old Time Rag and burlesque performances from Ellie Etoile’s troupe.

Mrs Cassady-Bishop said: “It went better than expected.

“The weather helped and there were more people there not wearing steampunk than we expected.

“It was an absolutely astounding atmosphere and everyone got involved with a massive dance off at the end with the burlesque dancers.
