The Idle Cogs Retford Steampunk Society (TICRSS) are a group of Steampunk enthusiasts formed out of a need to bring Steampunk to life in Retford. We, as a group feel that Steampunk is about fun, creativity & expression and we embrace it to the full. With regular meets, crafting evenings & day trips, we feel that we are a pro-active group, unfettered by stuffy rules and regulations. We are always open to suggestions from all members old & new. All are welcome at our meets to discuss the wonderful world of Steampunk, play parlour games and have fun and a few tipples in a warm friendly environment. We do encourage Steampunk attire at our meetings but we are here to help and guide if you are in need of ideas.
