Retro Festival was held on Newbury showground, and although you can camp for the weekend, we chose to buy day tickets in advance for the Saturday. There's something there for all ages (I went with a group aged 15 to 70!), with lots of vintage shopping, classic cars, an airshow, live music, dance lessons and more. Bearing in mind that nobody else really in my group is a huge vintage fan, there was certainly enough to keep everyone entertained.
My gorgeous nieces and soon-to-be bridesmaids!
The dress is by Hell Bunny, 'May Day' I think it's called, and I felt very smug when I found it in a charity shop for just £7. The parasol certainly earnt it's money, it was incredibly hot and I did catch the sun slightly despite the portable shade and factor 30. We didn't buy much, I wasn't in trying-on mood in such heat, but two of my sisters bought some lovely hats. Vanessa is modelling the feathered creation in the picture above. She's off to Goodwood so thought it would be perfect for that.
This last set of photos is by my lovely niece Georgina, thank you Georgie!
You'll have to excuse the brevity of this post, I am afraid that I don't have time at the moment to do an in-depth review. It's a shame as I have so much more to share with you, from the gorgeous country house hotel we stayed in, to our trip to DOWNTON ABBEY!! Squeal!! Oh, and I'm getting married in two weeks!!
