ALABARE hosted its very first Steampunk Fair at the weekend.

The event was held at the charity's Wilton Emporium on Saturday.

There were trade stands, teapot racing, music and food for visitors to enjoy.

Visitors also had an opportunity to get up close and have a picture taken with the iconic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Lynn Ireland, the manager of the Wilton Emporium, said: "Thank you to everyone who supported our first ever Steampunk Fair at Wilton Emporium.

"We would like to thank Steamhenge for all their hard work and help getting it off the ground.

"We wouldn’t of had such a fantastic splendid day without each of the customers that came to support us so a very big thank you to each and everyone who put on their finery or just came to look.”

Alabare supports vulnerable, homeless and marginalised people.
