“Vampires of London.”

There is now merely a fortnight until the Exposition once more opens its portals to imagination and immersion of an alternate 1893 World’s Fair! It is a time of finalizations: schedules firmed, food and beverage orders placed, printing, stitching, and more . . . We are excited to see you all again! 🙂

We are also nearing the launch of our annual Steam & Sorcery LARP mystery game that places you at the heart of the investigation into “The Shadow of Nosferatu.” Solve the enigma, save the day, and win prizes! This week we present to you the penultimate clue card in this story.

These clues cards can be used in our immersive live action role-playing game (LARP) Steam & Sorcery; see below for details of the game. Click HERE for the previous clue cards.

Also this week, we reveal the long awaited Steam & Sorcery LARP “Vampire” Archetype card . . .

Afternoon Tea

We are entering the final days to purchase your tea tickets! Please note, tea tickets will not be sold onsite,

Both Saturday and Sunday afternoon of the Exposition, we offer you the opportunity to relax with cups of tea, delicious finger foods, and, for some, delightful conversation with our guests of honor.

Each tea party table is offered a choice of teas: English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey, Assam, or Darjeeling. Food served  to accompany the tea consists of: British scone with jam and clotted cream, 2 cucumber sandwiches, 2 egg salad sandwiches, 2 mini eclairs, 2 lemon tartlets, cup of fruit, and 2 Chessmen cookies (for Tea Dueling).

Saturday – 2pm
Saturday – 4pm
Sunday – 2pm


Tickets are limited and tend to sell out quickly, especially for the tables sharing tea with one of our Guests of Honor, so don’t delay.
