What's On - May 2015

 Dear Readers,

I recently sat down and drew up a list of all the vintage and wartime events Indi and I hope to attend this summer for a friend so we could compare notes. I realised that this may be of value for you lovely folks too as so often it can be difficult to know what's happening until it's been and gone. Generally at the beginning of the year I will go on the internet and trawl through for all the events I can find listed and add them to my calendar. I also go back and check periodically in case something else has been added or possibly even removed. I put all of the events into the diary regardless of how many there are or what else is going on just so I know what is coming up. There are some events which are a must for us every single year and then others which I have in the calendar and are more flexible on if we attend or not - usually weather dependent!

Do you know of any other vintage or wartime events coming up soon? If so let me know so I can pop them in my diary or advertise your event here!



  1. The 1940's weekend on the Bail sounds like fun. Have you seen that Woodhall Spa have a 1940's weekend on the 17/18th July? It looks good, just working out if I can get to it.

    1. Hi Kate-Em. It was good fun and just working out what to post about it now.
      Woodhall Spa weekend is brilliant. It's our favourite event of the year. Eeek I'm so excited for it!

  2. Scampston Hall does vintage is on this weekend. 13th-14th June. Should be great.

    1. Oh no I can't believe I missed out on this and so close to home too!
      Did you go Jac? If so I hope you had a good time at it. I'm trying to curb my spending now that we have a date for our wedding.
