I am very excited to finally share the details of the event, it'll start at 5pm and finish around 8:30pm on the 10th July 2011. On arrival guests will be greeted by me and collect a hot cupa tea and yummy cake, all served on gorgeous vintage china (of course)!
Then you can explore the vintage stalls selling, clothes, accessories, jewellery and homeware. Whilst listening to wonderful music from the 1940's - 1960's with a touch of Electro Swing thrown in (for my sister), guests can then be pampered into a vintage vision, we'll have the lovely Lady She from Cirencester's Vintage shop She Unique, styling hair. B of Limelight Image Consultancy making over faces into starlets of times gone by. And then some lovely ladies doing vintage inspired manicures, and the favourite half moon styled 1940's look.
And if all that isn't enough the marvelous Burlesque artist Kitty Ribbons will perform twice throughout the afternoon some acts with a 1940's twist.
Its going to be such a fantastic afternoon, we plan on having this every couple of months building on the vintage theme each time. The best bit is tickets are only £6 including tea and cake, with proceeds going to Cirencester Air Raid Shelter, which is worth its own blog entry. I had the fantastic chance to photograph Kitty at the Air Raid/ Living History Museum and I could have stayed all night- such fascinating items on display there.
