Poetry

Robbie Burns is known for his eloquent and thought-provoking poetry. Many of our readers will remember the famous poem by Robbie Burns: ‘To a mouse, on turning her up in her nest with the plough (1785)’.

Here the narrator expresses his feelings after he accidentally breaks apart a mouse’s nest with his plough. Burns expertly moves the reader from empathising with the little animal to pondering man’s relationship with the natural world and even the future of humanity.

The best-laid schemes o’ mice an ‘men
Gang aft agley,
An’lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!

The sub-aquatic steampunk weekend

What’s happening? The subaquatic steampunk weekend
Date
: Saturday 30 September 2017
Where? Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport
Time:
10:00 am until 5:00 pm
Tickets: £12.00

The Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport will be hosting the Subaquatic Steampunk Weekend on Saturday 30 September 2017. Doors open from 10:00 am till 5:00 pm and tickets are an affordable £12-00 to get in.

The weekend will have something for the whole family. Apart from experiencing all the nautical- themed steampunk festivities, families can explore the HMS Alliance, the only remaining WW2 era British ocean-going submarine.

So, what is steampunk anyway?

According to Wikipedia, Steampunk is ‘a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery ‘.

Many films and novels have been inspired by the science fiction genre. Not only that, steampunk has largely been perpetuated at conventions and events where fans of the fashion can display their own personal interpretations of the Steampunk look.

The fashion is based on the ethos that questions what the world would have looked like, had electricity never been discovered. The idea is that steam power would be the predominant form of energy. All forms of Steampunk fashion involve some sort of locomotive overtone.

The subaquatic steampunk weekend is expected to draw large numbers and attendees are encouraged to join in by dressing in their finest Steampunk fashion.

If you are planning on experiencing the Sub-aquatic Steampunk Weekend, why not avoid the long drive home by staying at B+B Wickham. Our B+B is located only 25 minutes’ drive from the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport. We recommend that you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
