At this drizzly time of year, we thought we’d throw back to brighter summer days. Last summer, Twinwood Festival celebrated its fifteenth anniversary, with the incredible sold out weekend that was Twinwood 2016. It was a fantastic, jam-packed weekend that truly felt like stepping back in time!
Twinwood Festival is well known in the vintage world as the ultimate festival for vintage music and dance. Last year was an unforgettable weekend for the vintage lovers who travelled across the UK to experience the vintage weekend. The line-up featured popular acts such as The Puppini Sisters, The Electric Swing Circus and Bootleg Beatles. The Twinwood Arena was buzzing the entire weekend with a huge variety of genres, from Western Swing and Rockabilly to Northern Soul. There was truly something for everyone at this eclectic vintage festival!
We loved the wonderful mix of music and dance with fashion, a huge variety of food and drink, plenty of history and all the Clapham Village Amenities that made the stay so comfortable. The Twinwood Airfield Museums were open on all three days of the festival, too, meaning visitors could make the most of the festival’s historic location.
The Mr and Miss Vintage UK competition was a hit as always, with Matthew Palmer as Mr Vintage UK 2016 and Laura Hollowell as Miss Vintage. The Colonial Club was packed out and the finalists truly pulled out all the stops, making the final decision extremely difficult for the judges. So if you’re keen to enter Mr and Miss Vintage UK this year, be sure to check out some photographs of the Mr and Miss Vintage contestants from Twinwood Festival 2016 for some inspiration.
Tickets are already on sale for Twinwood Festival 2017, taking place 25th-28th of August. The line-up is already looking great, with many more acts yet to be announced.
