Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway today announce a new ‘central’ home for their award-winning Vintage festival. The festival, which celebrates the best of British creativity and culture across the 1920s-1980s, is moving to central England to the grand stately home of the Boughton Estate in Northamptonshire for 2012. The Vintage Festival is one of the most content rich festivals in the UK, with an emphasis on cutting edge Fashion, Art, Design, Style, Film, Food and, of course, Music, celebrated across the decades.
The iconic British designers are moving the festival to the site on 13-15 July 2012 to allow more people in the UK to experience the event that won ‘Best New Festival’ last year. The Hemingway’s also want to involve more local businesses and community groups across the country in the festival and is encouraging people to bring their vintage contributions to the event.
“Vintage is a different type of festival, it is like a big dressing-up box, a creative feast for all ages where you can dance the dances of the decades, watch world renowned bands, buy fantastic vintage clothes and accessories, take part in creative workshops, eat wonderful food, watch iconic movies, enjoy catwalk shows, see the cars, the designs the art that helped make Britain the world’s creative hotspot. It’s about having a glamorous, fun, celebratory and uncompromisingly comfortable time in stunning surroundings. We believe that we have found those stunning surroundings in our new home and look forward to having more people from across the country to celebrate Britain in 2012.”
