The event raising money for the railway is a vibrant mix of all things vintage with sprinkling of handmade, craft and retro items. Giving this event a little extra “va va” vintage is our line up of family entertainment, live music with String of Pearls Vintage Duo, The jailhouse Rockers and The Chicken Shack Boogie Boys plus dancing with Strictly Jitterbug.
For the little ones there’s a Bouncy castle, face painting and free children’s entertainment.
Wet your whistle and keep refreshed with Burton-on-Trent based Speakeasy Cocktails will be working some mixology magic with themed cocktails and alcohol free mocktails.
The Pop-Up Vintage Salon return to offer hair and make-up styling, including victory rolls, beehives, waves and curl sets à la Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese, from just £5.
There’s also the vintage “photo booth” where you can have your photo taken and receive two vintage prints on the day.
The Sidings Tea Room will be serving a Sunday carvery and afternoon tea. Please book a table by calling Jenny 07563 754498.
Once again Chasewater Railway’s full service of trains are running throughout the day. So come down and say hello we would love to see you there. With free parking and free entrance it’s an absolutely delightful vintage day out for all the family! (Donations for Chasewater Railway will be kindly received though.)
