“This year we are taking over three buildings at the course instead of two with increased trading areas due to demand,” said Harris.

“This time we are welcoming more Art Deco dealers into the vintage home section, selling furniture, lighting and decorative pieces, as the festival attracts lots of visitors who not only dress impeccably in clothes from the 1930s to the ‘60s but also fill their homes to create an entire way of life.”

The event, which runs on Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, features 130 original vintage dealers this year.

They include Gemma Richmond from Cleveland with vintage jewellery, Gingersmegs Vintage from Birmingham with textiles and fashion, and Jack Cooper from Doncaster with Art Deco lighting.

Living the life and looking the part also includes music and dance. This year the 20 bands on the Rockin and Victory Stages include The Jets, Rusti Steel & The Star Tones, and The Washboard Resonators with Shag Up North and Wakey Lindy Hoppers taking swing dance classes.
