After its huge success last year, the UK’s largest vintage music and dance extravaganza, Twinwood Festival will return to Twinwood Arena in Clapham, Bedfordshire this summer. It will be the event’s 14th year, held over the weekend of 29th-31st August, and it’s set to be the biggest yet, with countless attractions for festival goers who visit from all over the world.
As ever, the festival will be a haven for music lovers who have an appreciation for good popular retro music. With 60 live bands playing music through the decades over 11 venues, including the centrepiece outdoor arena, festivalgoers are spoilt for choice. The bands and artists will include the excellent Si Cranstoun, The London Swing Orchestra, 60s group The Overtures, Rock ‘n’ Roll band Joey and the Jivers, The Revolutionaires big band and many, many more class acts. From the classic days of Charlston, through the 40s to the rock and roll of the 50s and the music of the swinging 60s, the range of acts is vast – right the way through to electro-swing acts that blend tradition with modernity.
With so much choice, it’s just as well all the venues have acres of sprung dance floors which reverberate to the beat of the music, and after you’ve been to the retro dance lessons that will be available across the weekend, taking in swing dancing, modern jive, rock and roll, the jitterbug and plenty more besides, you’ll be on the floors as well.
To help set the scene, Twinwood Festival Village will also be filled with over 100 vintage traders selling fabulous fashions and collectables, plus there will be flying displays, classic vehicles and museums to feast your eyes on. There will even be a choice of hair and beauty salons to make sure you look the part.
Fantastic camping for caravans, motor homes and tents is provided next to the Festival Village and five nights stay, with good facilities, is available to 3 day ticket holders at a great price.
Also non camping festival goers will be able to buy tickets for individual days as well as 3-day weekend tickets.
