Drift back in time to those halcyon days and soak up the unique atmosphere in the period costume of your chosen era.
Set in the past, the Vintage For Victory vintage festival celebrates all that was great from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. It is an opportunity to dress up to the nines in timeless style, amongst a crowd of people doing the same.
The festival’s organisers said:
“We are looking to build on last year’s festival to make this an event that Whitchurch can be proud of. This type of festival doesn’t take place in any other suburb of Cardiff – we are looking to bring the community of Whitchurch together in a fun way. We want you to forget about your worries for a weekend, dress up and come and have a good time with your friends.”
There will be plenty to see and do at the festival amid a very musical backdrop. Taking centre stage is the NAAFI Tent, which will be home to live music from vintage-inspired performers such as Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Band, Elle and the Pocket Belles, The Big What Band and Mr B, The Gentleman Rhymer. There will be plenty of toe-tapping music to dance to, including jive lessons.
Away from the main tent, there will be an array of vintage emporiums to browse, as well as a wide range of great food and drink stalls.
There will also be a formation of vintage military vehicles on display, including full-scale replicas of a Spitfire and a Hurricane. Cars and bikes from the 1940s, 50s and 60s will also be on show.
