Previous themes have been steampunk Alice in Wonderland, Atlantis and the Night Circus and the decorations and costumes are themed accordingly.

The events happen twice yearly and are always hosted by our own zeppelin commander Captain Kuppa T and his singing zeppelin crew who treat the guests to their unique acapella renditions of popular songs with a steampunk twist.

The events have proved so popular that we now sell tickets to each event which can be purchased via Facebook or the website so you can be sure of booking your place on the next flight.

The steampunks usually turn up early in full costume to dine on our fine vegetarian food much to the amazement of regular punters and it's a sight to behold as the garden and pub are filled with splendidly costumed travellers milling about and enjoying a drink before the proceedings commence.

If you enjoy great music and cabaret, chap hop disco, splendid costume and are not averse to the weird and wonderful it's well worth a look in - you might make some new friends and discover a whole new world of fun and music.

Captain Kuppa T and his Zeppelin crew have some great videos of performances up on YouTube so if you're not sure what you might be letting yourself in for you can check them out and get a taste of what the night has in store for you.

Why not join the Captain on facebook to keep apprized of the situation.
