This weekend we travelled to the hugely anticipated Festival of Vintage..

This took place at York Racecourse so this meant quite a round trip for us, from Kent. With a four hour journey we were on the road for 7am…

And was it worth it… (Not a question!!!)

There were dance lessons…

I went to the Festival of Vintage and all I bought were these three bags…

So – was it worth it? We pre-booked our tickets paying £33 for two weekend passes. The venue is easy to get to. There is plenty of free parking on site. Within the huge venue we were treated to every type of vintage stall holder one can imagine. We bought Pyrex, Poole, clothing and bags. Hubby was pleased with the extensive selection of menswear. There were books, shoes, coats, suitcases, chairs, sideboards and vintage inspired clothing.

In each room there was entertainment. We watched dance lessons. Sewing lessons. Singers. Loved the vintage cars. The most amazing part is the effort so many of the stall holders and guests put into their attire. It certainly inspired us and we came home and booked tickets to the Goodwood Revival. And we will be taking dancing lessons and finding the appropriate clothing in readiness.
