I hope you are all well and ready for today’s post. As you can guess by the theme of this blog, I’m obsessed with history and vintage.. so when I tell you that I went to a 1940’s festival last weekend you’ll all know how excited I was at the prospect. For the last four or so years, my Dad, Nan and I have a tradition of visiting a 1940’s or vintage festival every year in late summer or early September when most of the events take place, this year we chose to visit Ramsey 1940’s weekend in Cambridgeshire after having a wonderful time at the 2016 festival. Located in a beautiful and quaint Fen town, Ramsey takes place in a ginormous field which belongs to the Ramsey Rural Museum and spans across the entire length with stools, tents, re-enactors… you name it littering the field.
The main reason Ramsey caught my eye last time (and I can’t lie to y’all on this fact) was for its extensive range of stalls which sold a plethora of vintage clothes, accessories, misc etc, you name it, they probably have it! I could honestly spend hours getting lost amongst the vintage jumble, and although I didn’t buy too much this time I absolutely loved digging through them. Another favourite for me was seeing my fellow vintage enthusiasts, who wonderfully promoted the vintage, rockabilly and retro subcultures, absolutely rock out by singing and dancing in the entertainment tent, or embrace living history by dressing up in period costume, it was all so brilliant and (call me biased) proved even more to me why the vintage community is the best community <3
Okay, Okay. I don’t want to spoil any more of the event for those of you who haven’t visited, so I’m going to leave you all with another picture gallery so you can get a feel for the vibe of the event. If you have any questions, comments etc please feel free to ask/ share below.
Until next time,
