Babbage Clocktower

Babbage Clocktower

Join us today at 2pm at Piermont Landing for a VERY unusual Designing Worlds show!

We will be in New Babbage to inspect some of the fascinating new engineering works deep beneath this most steampunk of cities and – as the people of Babbage say – What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

For we won’t be deterred by the fact that there are all sorts of strange legends and rumours about the oldest parts of the city … nor will we be put off by the fact fact that this is, actually, our closest show to Halloween.

No, we will be having a nice, calm, peaceful show.

Really.

Well, at all events, it will be a show unlike any other Designing Worlds, that we can promise you!

And, to mark this special Halloween edition, we have a special Viewing Party. We won’t be gathering in the studio today, but at a beautiful location in New Babbage – at Piermont Landing in Wheatstone Waterways, where Miss Breezy Carter will be hosting the unique viewing party.

And, of course, as usual, there are gifts for everyone who attends the show!

The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be at our viewing party by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat.  Or you can watch on the Treet live stream.
