The Festival of Vintage event in York


Not to be confused with the Wayne Hemingway event, The Festival of Vintage is a new event that promises to offer up more than a few retro and vintage bargains.

Taking place at York Racecourse on 30th April 2010, it's a mix of vintage entertainment and vintage market, focusing on the 1930s to the 1960s. Experience bygone music, styles and dancing from past decades, watch fashion displays, get make-up tips, check out classic cars and dress up in your favourite period gear.

All of that is perhaps a backdrop to the main event, with over 100 'specially selected' vintage dealers from across the UK selling everything from frocks to kitchenware and toys to radios. There will also be clubs, books and magazines plus various vintage experts on hand throughout the day. It runs from 10am- 5pm, entry is £4 for adults and under 16 are free.
