A celebration of five decades of British cool, Vintage is
now a much-loved fixture of the UK festival scene. From
pure kitsch to kitchen sink, our image collection captures
it in all its swaggering glory.
The Vintage Festival is yet another extraordinary brainchild of prolific design duo, Geraldine and Wayne Hemingway, who’ve been at the heart of British design for the last twenty five years. It’s a celebration of five decades of the best of British cool from the 1920s to the 1980s. They describe it as ‘a sensual delight, a big dressing-up box, a collector’s dream and a joyous creative feast for all ages.’ As usual, they’re spot on.
At Surface View we love Vintage, and ever since its earliest days the Hemingway’s have been great advocates of what we do, so getting together with Wayne and Geraldine to create our Vintage Festival collection has been a great pleasure for us.
For one glamorous weekend every year, if you’re in Britain, the only place to be is at the Vintage Festival. A celebration of five decades of the best of British cool, Vintage rejoices in the music, fashion, film, art, design, dance and food from the 1920s to the 1980s.
Now, in 2012, the glorious grounds of Boughton House provide the backdrop and will transform into a multi-venue playground where, over 3 days, pass holders can ‘learn the dances’, take in specially curated live performances, exclusive DJ sets, catwalk shows, brilliantly conceived food and cocktails, or take advantage of the decade specific hair and beauty makeovers and all the wonderful vintage shopping on offer. Join us for the Britain’s best looking and most uplifting long weekend of the festival season.
