Let’s go Retro!

Sunday 2nd March

Well. My word. What a splenducious event that was. This weekend Swindon town centre has been the location of  a Vintage/Retro extravaganza organized by the management of the Brunel shopping centre. And I have to say jolly impressive the whole thing was. Bluddy marvellous in fact.

The town centre was chock fill of vintage cars, there was skiffle on Canal Walk, fashion shows, Lindy Hop, demonstrations of vintage hairstyles and a wonderful pop-up shop/display featuring the Swindon Heritgage magazine people, Carter Collectables, R Ken White  – with whom I got to shake hands and acquire a copy of the Swindon Heritage magazine signed by him – and lots of display material relating to Swindon’s rich history. There was a Diana Dors look-a-like and people in all manner of vintage outfits amongst many other splendid things. So many people had thoroughly embraced the whole thing in every way. So very well done to the Brunel management and Swindon for a really terrific event.

So below – just to give you a flavour of the weekend – are a few photos.

And here’s a link to Your Swindon Town Centre where there’s lots of pictures.
