He added: “There were traders, magicians, and various performers on both days.

“We had six boilers in steam throughout the weekend.

“In Norfolk there are not many steampunk events.”

Mr Baker said there would be a meeting soon to discuss a follow-up event.

Steampunk is a type of science fiction interest inspired by the technology of the Victorian era.
