Step back in time at HRCC’s Vintage Fair

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity’s annual Vintage Fair is returning to Cressing Temple Barns on Sunday 9 July. Celebrating all things vintage, the event is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet with a variety of stalls, food and live entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
 
Keeping the atmosphere lively throughout the day will be popular rock ‘n’ roll band the Kingsmen and female trio the Harmonettes, who will both be performing hits from the era. Visitors will also be able to watch or join in with jive dancing from LJ’s Jive School and Foxy Rock Rock ‘n’ Roll Club.

There will be lots of opportunities for shopping with a selection of stalls selling vintage clothing, crafts, jewellery, kitchenalia, furniture and collectables. Plenty of refreshments will be available, including a pop-up vintage teashop and a horsebox bar offering prosecco and alcoholic beverages. Other delicious food options such as pizzas, hog roasts, ice creams and fudge will also be on offer.

Those wanting to embrace vintage style with a new hair-do can get their hair styled courtesy of the Hairaid Shelter. And adding to the car-nival of entertainment will be a display of classic vehicles and stationary engines.
