As collectors and scholars of the history of music, fashion, film, art and design to food, we are constantly inspired by the wealth of creativity of the 20th Century. Vintage by Hemingway is our tribute to the cultural movements of the 20th Century. From our Vintage inspired product ranges to the magical Vintage Festival, Vintage by Hemingway celebrates the wonderful legacy that has been left to us to reinterpret for the 21st century.
The musical experience at Vintage Festival covers decades, genres and styles that have affected Britain over the years. We have Vintage Nightclubs to suit all musical tastes: swing, jazz, rockabilly and rhythm n blues, northern soul, funk, disco, ska, house, exotica and MORE! Vintage has a policy to curate a line-up that sets it apart from other festivals and is truly eclectic.
Whichever decade excites you - Vintage addresses the era’s fashion in a mesmerising display of catwalk shows, hands-on-creative workshops and a Vintage Marketplace with the best vintage traders, hand-picked by our Vintage team. The Vintage Marketplace hosts purveyors of fashion and accessories, bringing together couture labels with prêt a porter and street style from the 1920s through to the 1990s. Expect to see the finest selection of mid-century modern homewares, records, music memorabilia and up-cycled ephemera.
Quality food is very much part of Vintage. Vintage transports visitors, via their taste buds, to the tastes and eating habits of days gone by. At Vintage you can sample the flavours of the era as authentically as possible with historically linked eating opportunities, not to mention themed cocktails from the bars.
Vintage is so much more than a music festival – it's a veritable feast of art, craft, creativity and serendipitous fun. Vintage has art and design flowing through its veins. Opportunities to have a go at painting, designing and generally getting creative are everywhere - you can learn a new skill or revive an old one with help from our expert tutors. At Vintage we take a sense of wartime make-do-and-mend austerity and apply it to a modern sense of sustainability and respect for the environment.
Around every corner festival goers can expect to find those little unexpected touches that truly make it a special day out. Whether it’s a display of classic cars, a pooch parade, RAF flyovers, donkey rides, classic fairground rides, pop-up performances, or classic cinema screenings, we can guarantee there is something to put a smile on the faces of grown-ups and not-so-grown-ups alike!
