The event organised by Keeley Rosendale of Discover Vintage since 2011 is full of people for whom vintage is a way of life.

The first this year is on Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30.

Not only are there 95 dealers in the Vintage Arcade “with room for a couple more vintage homeware dealers selling 20s to 60s items,” said Rosendale, but there are also classic cars, live music on the Rockin’ Stage, a dance hall, workshops and a vintage beauty parlour – so if that includes hair, it is maybe ‘curls and bangs’ 1950s hairdos to look out for.
