We are delighted to announce our next BIG VINTAGE FESTIVAL at Kelham Hall, Newark! A grandiose vintage festival set in Kelham Hall (just 5 minutes off the A1 at Newark). Kelham Hall is a magnificent Victorian house built in 1863 and set within 42 acres of luscious gardens and parklands. A perfect setting for a day of vintage revelry and nostalgia.

Love the Hotsie Totsies? These lovely ladies will be gracing our stage in The Dome at 11, 12:30 and 3pm … make sure you don’t miss this performances – they are truly super!

Each striking hall will be filled with a vast array of vintage delights. First class vintage traders will be on hand to share their years of experience, bringing with them the very best vintage clothes, homewares, accessories, memorabilia and kitchenalia. Alongside this, a selection of fabulous vintage DJs (including John Morris and Major Swing and Kitty) will be there to entertain you whilst you purvey our vintage traders!

Why not enjoy afternoon tea whilst overlooking the beautiful gardens (supplied by the venue), or get involved with our copious free demos and workshops! If that’s not enough, we have a fab vintage beauty bar run by Faye Robertson who will be on hand to transform you ladies into your fave vintage icon – rouge and rollers at the ready (!!!), there will be a handful of classic cars, the prettiest vintage photo booth you can imagine (ran by the fab Vintage-Booth) and a pop up cinema showing classic films through the day – films to be announced soon (once we’ve had a confirmation of them from the venue which is taking a little longer than we had hoped!)
