TWO events are taking place at the Regal Theatre in Minehead to celebrate the Early May Steampunk Festival.

On Saturday the Steampunk Cabaret Show will stage Victor Sierra, a three piece band from Paris featuring Commander Bob, The Legendary Converted Princess and Big Machine.

Acting as Master of Ceremonies will be Greg Chapman (pictured below) - Magician, Comedian, Juggler, Unicyclist, Escapologist and Story Teller – one can never tell what he’ll do next...

Somerset County Gazette:

He will introduce support acts, Doctor Gray and his Orchestra of One, Kiss Like Ether, Ichabod Steam, the beautiful Lux DeLioux and Ichabod Steam performing his new Dark Side Gothic Adventure.

On Sunday at the Steampunk Variety Show, MC Greg Chapman will appear again to introduce The Wattingers who describe themselves as Slaughterhouse Steampunk Blues.

These brilliant musicians present their original songs and videos with a dark sense of humour. Support acts include Kiss Like Ether, The Retro Clones (one man act supported by moving images of himself playing other instruments), and the beautiful Lux DeLioux.

The performances take place on May 4 and 5. They both start at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £16.00. To find out more or to book call 01643 706430 or visit
