Once again, the Steam Tent Co-operative will be setting up our extraordinary encampment with it’s usual Retro / Old School / Steampunk Twist but with a spookier atmosphere at Rough Close the weekend before Halloween.

The layout of Rough Close gives us the opportunity to have other tents, pitched very close by but out of direct sight of the main encampment, so that people not yet ready or able to go fully “Steam Tent” can still fully join in with camp life in the communal areas but retire to their own accommodation when needed.  This is great for members just starting out.

All we ask is that people do their best to join in the spirit of the camp to maintain the look and feel that we are trying to create. It’s really not too difficult. Dress code is “Old fashioned to fully “Steampunk” if you like. This would also be a great opportunity to get in touch with your inner Goth of course. We try to keep modern packaging and equipment out of sight in the main part of the camp, much can be achieved with simple cloth bags or strategic blankets. It just takes a little thought.

Last year we enjoyed a “Jacob’s Join” on Saturday night with everyone bringing their own “Spooky” dish to the table.

A  fine opportunity to gather around the camp fire with friends and good company to dispel the forces of darkness.
