Festival organiser Keeley Harris said “I am so excited with the line-up this year, it is going to be bigger and better than ever before, and am really looking forward to seeing everyone dressed in their vintage finery. For me the best part about the event is all the dancing, when I get a chance, I love to watch everybody jiving & swinging on the dance-floor to some brilliant bands”
New for this year is the Vintage Dance Hall with Free Dance Lessons and the UK Vintage Dance Competition.
With over 200 hand-picked vintage dealers from across the UK selling fashion and home-wares from 1930’s-1960’s as well as 50 top quality Repro Brands, this event is a honey pot for vintage collectors and enthusiasts.
