You may have noticed, but I have already dedicated a page to this post – but because I am so gosh darn excited (people still talk like that, you know), I have chosen to copy and paste the page info and turn it into a post too.


Anyway. Festival anyone?

If you haven’t already heard of it, Twinwood is an annual vintage music, dance and fashion festival. Now in its 11th year, the event runs on the 25, 26 and 27th August in Clapham near Bedford and plays host to multiple dance floors, fashion shows, comedy, stalls, food, bars, living history, classic vehicles and (duh duh duuuuuh) dance lessons! (My favourite!)

The festival pays particular homage to the 1930s, 40s and 50s and has been voted by The Telegraph as one of the top 20 UK festivals for the past three years in a row.

Now, I am all for a bit of dance, music and the obligatory vintage fashion stall, but this festival seems like something I should be all over – to be honest, I’m a bit embarrassed I have only just heard of it.

Still – no matter, if you are as interested as I am, why not book a couple of tickets? The prices are reasonable and because it’s situated just over half an hour away from the dead centre of London, it seems fairly easy to travel to and from. 

You may find this hard to believe, but I am not actually employed by Twinwood, but any three-day festival which dedicates its waking hours to the 40s (plus a decade either side) is a winner with me.
