Vintage at Goodwood celebrates 5 decades of British Cool on the 13th-15th August. This new summer festival is the brainchild of designers Gerardine Hemingway MBE, Wayne Hemingway MBE – who started their business selling and customising second hand clothes and are now co-owners of Britain’s premier collection of cultural artefacts.
Think of Vintage at Goodwood as the new annual Festival of Britain. Whether it’s Swing, Rockabilly, Mod, Soul, Funk, Disco, Ska, Electro, Burlesque, Film or Art & Design that’s your thing, whether you just want to dress up and get an authentic ‘flat top’ and make-over for a day, Vintage at Goodwood will be visual, responsible, aural and sensual, a big family dressing up box, a collectors dream and a joyous creative feast for all ages.
So time to dust down your tent or book one of their very stylish yurts and head to the South Downs. Amidst all this fun and frivolity will be some serious WI cake, cream teas and china...I'm still working out wether Let them eat Cake should tootle down there too...
