UNIQUE FESTIVAL IN THE STREETS OF HISTORIC OUNDLE
MAY 16th 2020
AN ECLECTIC VINTAGE FESTIVAL WITHIN OUNDLE'S HISTORIC STREETS
Following on from the huge success of the inaugural event, Oundle Vintage Festival is back in 2020. The main all-day event on Saturday 16th May is held throughout the streets of the town, this follows a Vintage Dance taking place on Friday 15th May.
The Festival is run by local volunteers wanting to showcase Oundle and raise funds for local projects. It’s FREE to enter + FREE parking, with donations welcome on the day going to the Love Oundle Fund.
Within Oundle’s streets Festival goers will enjoy displays of classic cars, motorbikes, steam engines, vintage tractors, buses, cycles, machinery and also a ride-on mini railway.
The Vintage Fun Fair will provide rides and entertainments for young and old, and for those after a vintage bargain, the Antique & Vintage Market will offer plenty of opportunity. Perhaps this is where you will acquire your vintage look?
There will be many turning up to enjoy the day dressed and groomed in styles from their favoured era – from the 20’s to the 60’s with prizes on offer for ‘best dressed’.
There will also be a chance to take guided tower tours at St Peter’s to discover hidden rooms and go inside the highest church steeple in Northants, as well as experience stunning views from on-high.
Back at ground level the Vintage Stage will host an eclectic array of singers, dancers and performers all day long, all within a stone’s throw of the Food & Drink Court with plenty of artisan street food on offer. And watch out for our ‘street entertainers‘!
