Bridlington can get set for a taste of the vintage life as a fair dedicated to all things traditional heads to the Spa.

More than 2,500 people packed out the Advintageous vintage fair when it visited Scarborough last year, and organisers are hoping a similar boost for Bridlington this bank holiday weekend.

On Sunday, May 26 from 10am until 5pm, there will be more than 60 stalls of everything vintage including clothes, homeware, jewellery, furniture and more – as well as a vintage hair and beauty salon; barber with cut throat knives; tea room and a dedicated NAAFI cafe serving a 1940s menu.

The entertainment does not stop there, as the event will feature live entertainment including a vintage DJ; the children of Garton-on-the-Wolds School performing a WWI tribute; professional vintage dance group Tutti Frutti.

For those who might want to take a break from shopping there is a vintage Hi-Fi chill-out room where you can grab a drink, as well as classic scooters and bikes on display.

In keeping with the 1940s theme, there will be an air raid shelter plus appearances from original Land Army girls.

There will also be a seaside fortune teller The Great Abanazar; a professional vintage photographer – as well as the opportunity to learn swing dancing from one of Strictly Come Dancing’s professional dancers.

Organiser Kat Flynn said: Relive the ‘Good Old Days’. Take a trip down memory lane and open up a whole new world of style.”

Admission is £2, and under 12s will get in free.
