Saturday - Vintage Goodwood

WOW my day out with Sue for my Birthday was amazing!  I loved every minute of it and I want to go next year but glamp (posh camping) next time, hopefully lots of us it will be really great fun.

When we arrived you followed the fairy lights through the woods
 Till you got to:
 
It was a festival to celebrate the last 50 years of Fashion, Music, Art and Food and there was so much to do and see it was just brilliant.  The attention to detail was outstanding and it was a real feel good experience, remembering lots of the things that we saw "Do you remember ..... " "I had one of those, yes so did I"  It was just great.

They had built a High Street which was amazing 2 storey shop fronts.  Here are a couple:

There were lots of different areas for music.  Rock N Roll:

with some great dancers, some dress up some not:




and I thought this guy on the left looked brilliant, turned out to be Luke Morgan who had organised the whole of the Rock N Roll area!

The Warehouse


The Jazz tent, this had a very posh restaurant all around the edge of the stage where you could have a very nice meal and listen to the music, which was brilliant:

This Dad was having a great time with his little girl

The Main Stage

This lady was waiting for Alvin to come on stage, how wonderful does she look

Next time we are dressing up too!

We saw Alvin Stardust on stage and he really entertained and had us all jigging about in no time.


The weather was kind with only 2 short sharp down pours which did not spoil it for us at all.

There were Hair and Make Up girls walking around doing members of the public up.

I love the look of afternoon tea at the Mess tent

They had a bus with Peter Blake's artwork and we even saw him being interviewed by the tv.

The attention to detail everywhere was absolutely amazing, well done to everyone who had a part in Vintage at Goodwood.

We watched Martha & the Vandellas in the evening and then made our way to Stevenage so that we would be ready to set up the stand on Sunday morning ready for the show.


I would recommend this festival to anyone as there was so much to do and see.

PS:  We leave for Creative Escape in 4 days time!
