Discover Tewkesburys vintage heritage

Visitors to Tewkesbury are in for a nostalgic treat on Saturday, April 13 when the town steps back in time to celebrate everything vintage from stylish fashions and antiques to vintage cars and traditional afternoon teas.

This picturesque market town in North Gloucestershire will be hosting a day packed with sophistication and elegance reminiscent of a bygone era when it was stylish to partake in afternoon tea, and the family motor car was likely to be a Sunbeam or Wolseley.

Follow the vintage and antique trail by foot linking shops, tea rooms and antique stores in Church Street and Barton Street which will be marked out with colourful bunting to guide visitors to the George Watson Memorial Hall where a scrumptious Vintage Fair awaits. Or jump in your car and enjoy a vintage car trail from Tewkesbury which can be downloaded at www.cotswoldsvintagetours.com/

Visit the Vintage Fair which opens at 10am packed with attractive stalls offering an array of goods not usually found on todays high street from original vintage clothing offering the wearer a unique piece of history to handmade goods made from vintage style fabrics.

Enjoy a traditional afternoon tea to wash down delicious homemade scones oozing with mouth-watering jam and cream or choose from a delectable selection of cupcakes neatly layered on towering cake stands.

Jamie Goodenough from Tewkesbury enjoys putting her sewing skills to good use and makes unique vintage style goods for the home including doorstops made from vintage style fabrics to a beautiful collection of stylish handmade make-up bags and handbags adorned with lace and ribbon bows.

This is a real community event with girl guides on hand providing refreshments for thirsty vintage fair goers, and pupils from Tewkesbury School showcasing handmade peg dolls dressed in costume produced as part of an Art Department project.

Youll also find local classic car club enthusiasts showcasing their lovingly restored cars and motor cycles in Barton Street.

For dance lovers, theres a jive dance demonstration. This fast past rock and roll dance style is guaranteed to get you toe tapping and wiggling your hips.
