Get ready to revel in a festival of vintage music, fashion and dance as Poole Goes Vintage on Sunday 17 July

Supported by Dutton Gregory Solicitors, the festival returns to Poole’s iconic Quay and harbour with a day of vintage music, memorabilia, entertainment and classic cars from 11am-7pm.

After a successful debut in 2015, the event returns with the sensational headline act Miss Annie and the Midnight Shift, who will be performing their 50’s style roots, rhythm and blues from 5.30-7pm.

Throughout the day there will be performances from talent female soloist Memphis Belle and bright, classy, toe tapping tunes from The Scarlets and crooner Real Vintage plus 1940’s songstresses The Land Girls complete with authentic costumes and choreography.

New to Poole Goes Vintage, magical duo the Aphrodites, 20’s inspired saxophones from the Forza Quartet and the chance to jive with rockabilly group The Ace Trio

There’s also the chance to get into the swing and learn to Lindy Hop with Jitterbug Jive’s fun demonstrations and have-a-go sessions.

Sue Murphy, Dutton Gregory Head of Business Development and Marketing, said; “Poole Goes Vintage was such a fantastic event last year and created a truly magical atmosphere.  Everyone really embraced the vintage theme and the crowds loved the wonderful clothes, music and dance.  This year looks even better and we are really excited to be supporting its return to Poole Quay with such a superb line-up.”

Anyone looking for their own piece of vintage can browse the vintage market or for a taste of the 1950’s visit Poole Museum’s 1950’s kitchen on the second floor between 12-4pm.

Prepare for action as Poole Gun crew perform firing demonstrations during the day plus there will be face painting, glitter tattoos and hair wraps from Diamond Faces.

Organised by Poole Tourism working with vintage events specialist Real Vintage, the event is part of Poole’s programme of summer events.  

Bruce Grant-Braham, Chairman of the Poole Tourism Partnership, said: “Last year demonstrated the popularity of vintage events and the enthusiasm of the audience they attract.  Poole Goes Vintage adds to the superb range and variety of free events Poole has on offer though out the summer and our thanks go to Dutton Gregory Solicitors for their support in bringing this a new style of event to Poole Quay.”
