What The Press Say

“A festival appealing to everyone from the casual vintage admirer to the hardcore devotee.”
Dazed & Confused

“An offbeat, cultural haven... If you’re looking for something a little different to the festival norm, take a look at the most stylish from this truly unique event.”

“A gaudy but unselfconscious celebration of 20th century popular culture.”
The Guardian

“Loved the atmosphere, the amazing attention to detail, the music, the fashions....everything was so inspiring. Our new favorite festival”
The Independent

"Seeing a younger generation engaging, perhaps for the first time, in something usually reserved for generations past is a perfect symbol of what the Vintage Festival represents. There's none of the sniggering irony which sometimes taints 'retro' events: everybody is fully appreciative of timeless style – whether they were there the first time round or not. To me this is the point the Vintage Festival succeeds in making: great style deserves not to be confined to the past.”
