Steampunk fans headed for Long Sutton Barns when the heavens opened on their picnic.

Organiser Jo Ball said: “We made a brave start out side as it was supposed to be a steampunk picnic!

“But the rain soon put pay to that so everyone made themselves at home in the barns. It was a very friendly atmosphere with nine stalls in total. Steampunk music in the background made for a nice time of steampunk shopping.

“The event was well attended and everyone went home happy.

“The nerf wars should have been much bigger across the field but, also hampered by the weather, they were moved into one of the barns on a smaller scale. There was target practise (nerf are guns that fire foam darts) and wars inside that were most successful. There was also best dressed Lady and Gentlemen awards that made for extra fun.”
