Anyone up for a Retro To Go Weekender? Find out more


Ok, details are scarce, but after getting a warm response to the idea via Twitter, I'm looking for feedback for a potential Retro To Go Weekender.

Here's the idea: Pick a town/city, organise something interesting and social for the Saturday and Sunday daytimes, then throw in a suitably-themed club night/event for the night. A 'get to know you' weekend that can operate occasionally and move around, so you get to discover the retro side of different places and of course, get a good weekend away without too much cash outlay.

Interested? Well, here's where YOU come in. If it's the kind of thing you would attend, leave some feedback via our Facebook or Twitter pages or add a comment below the article. Alternatively, send us an email if you want to attend or if you have an idea for a weekender event or location. The first event will probably be in Manchester, but if that's successful, it can go pretty much anywhere. Anyway..we await your feedback…

    I recently wrote about what I’d want from a retro festival at
    the need is there. x

    A retro festival is great but why does everything has to be down south?

  • I’d be interested, if I could get a babysitter in! Maybe focus on flea markets/antique markets if the chosen city has a good one, then a bit of a knees-up in the eve. I’d travel up north for this as it’d be a good chance to visit a new place, and not do the usual tourist stuff.

  • It’s always good to have someone organise something new who actually have a passion for it, I guess you know what I’m getting at! So yes, sounds good. I haven’t been to Manchester in years, might be a good opportunity. Just one note, if you do it, treat the traders nice ;o)

  • Sally

    Yes, please.

  • Count me in.
    Anywhere but Brighton pls (it’s so passé darling).
    A Norvun Soul night might be nice.

    Ooooo Manchester would be brilliant.
    I live in Manc and there is a great little club called the Tiger Lounge that would be perfect for the evening do!
    There’s also a night call Beat Boutique and if you’re lucky some kitsch afternoon tea and cake in the form of Mrs Boons Tea Party (which featured on Retrotogo).

    I’m in! Manchester would be great for me as I could combine it with a visit to my Mum. On a less selfish note, Brighton has more than its fair share of time-warp types in lovely vintage clothes.
