As in my previous post we were Twinwood virgins this weekend. So here is just a taste of what we did and saw.  It was fabulous to meet up with old friends and meet new ones, and meet some Facebook friends face to face!

Twinwood Festival is one of the biggest vintage music festivals which spans 3 days of music, dancing and shopping.

It started as a celebration of Glenn Miller who made his last fateful flight to Paris from the air field in 1944 but has now grown to all things vintage with 40’s, and 50’s bands, burlesque, cabaret, all day and into the night.

Vintage stalls to help you get the vintage look, hairdressers on hand to give the glamour of the era.

There was so much to do and see that we wore out shoe leather walking up and down to various areas in the hope not to miss anything.

One of the “must do” for us was to visit the Glenn Miller museum that is housed in the restored control tower – it was fascinating to see how it would have been set up during the war.
