Vintage fun for everyone

HRCC fundraisers Sue Hayden, Michelle Andrews and Kate Alden relish a vintage hat trying on session a-head of the Vintage Fayre day!

If you love all things vintage then Helen Rollason Cancer Charity (HRCC) can help transport you back to a bygone era as the charity’s annual Vintage Fayre returns to Cressing Temple Barns on Sunday 6 September. The event is shaping up to be another classic and includes something for everyone to enjoy while raising funds for HRCC.

Popular rock ‘n’ roll band The Kingsmen will again be performing throughout the day, playing their music from the fifties. DJ Rockabilly will also be performing, and dance group A2 Jive will be wowing the crowds with their distinctive1940’s style. Bringing that quintessentially British flavour to the day will be the Chelmsford Morris Dance group.

Traditional entertainment for children will be provided with Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, swing boats and face painting running throughout the day.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for shopping with a large variety of stalls selling a cornucopia of vintage clothing, crafts, jewellery, collectables, upcycled items, accessories and food. Refreshments will be available, including a pop-up vintage teashop. You can also get your hair styled courtesy of the Juggling Jules hair salon.

To add to the car-nival of entertainment will be a display of vintage vehicles.
