Set in a leafy suburb of Cardiff, this boutique Vintage Festival is the best kept secret in the events calendar – but we are delighted to be able to tell you all about it!

Inspired by the romance and glamour of Vintage fashion and nostalgia, visitors can drift back in time and soak up the atmosphere. The Vintage Emporium will be filled with stalls selling all manner of vintage and vintage inspired clothing and accessories to add to your collection so you can dress up to the nines in timeless vintage style.

Top acts include The Jive Aces, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer and The Satin Dollz who will be joined by a whole line up of fantastic live bands to fill the weekend with music for all ages and tastes. If you can’t keep your feet still, then there’s Jive and Lindy Hop lessons to get you moving and you can dance the night away at The Union jack Club with a great selection of Jive, Rock n Roll, Lindy, Swing, Rockabilly and Walk music to get those toes tapping.

There’s a traditional carnival with fairground rides and side shows, and if you feel a bit peckish there’s plenty of street food stands available to choose from.

An iconic full-sized replica Spitfire and Hurricane along with a re-enactment RAF flight crew will be there to tell you all about the history of these aircraft and there will be an array of vintage military vehicles, classic cars and bikes from the 40s to the 60s.

If you want to make an entire weekend of it, then camping is available and there’s an after-show party on Saturday night with music – it’s best to book the camping in advance.
