Circle Dresses and Wellies...

On August Bank Holiday weekend, Vivien and the team headed over to the fields of Bedford to take part in the 10th annual Twinwood Festival.

We departed from a rainy Vivien of Holloway HQ in London, with a van packed full of tents, dresses and wellies! Once we had set up our wonderfully placed marquee, the fun could begin! And although the typically English weather remained dreary, we had a couple of welcome bursts of sunshine and had a marvellous time meeting all our fabulous customers, seeing some of our favourite bands and friends and having a good ol' dance!

This year's Twinwood saw the first ever Vintage Life Glamour Pageant, and we were thrilled to be part of it. Vivien had been asked to be on the judging panel, and she found it to be a terribly tricky decision! The winner and runners up will be revealed in a future issue of Vintage Life and in one of our upcoming photoshoots! All of the contestants looked fabulously vintage and each of them was delighted when presented with a prize voucher by Vivien! Well done, girls!

Other highlights included seeing a set from our sponsors Million Dollar Quartet on the Sunday evening, and a very energetic performance by our friends the Jive Aces! And although the weather wasn't quite what we had hoped, it was a good excuse to shelter from the rain in a vintage stall or two!!

We hope those of you who visited had a wonderful time and those who didn't make it, will ensure they snap up tickets for next year! We'll see you there!
