The stunning grounds of Grantham House (by kind permission of the National Trust) come to life as we celebrate the spirit of early 20th Century Britain with two days of period and vintage displays and activities, showcasing life from the 1920's - through the War Years - to the 1950's.
Across the gardens and the house, there will be a diverse range of attractions including: vintage vehicles, reenactors and living history groups, dancing and music, trade and craft stalls, a vintage tea room and bar, family activities, vintage hairstylist and fashion, and a Saturday evening live band and dancing.There will also be a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Visitors are encouraged to come along dressed in their best vintage attire, and take part in our fashion parade and stand the chance of being crowned as the days 'Best Dressed' person.
SATURDAY EVENING LIVE BAND & DANCE
Join us, as gates open, from 7pm on Saturday 12th June 2021 for a fantastic evening of live entertainment and dancing at Grantham Vintage Festival. Put on your best vintage dress and dance the night away or relax to the sounds in true vintage style!
Fabulous music from (yet to be confirmed), supported by our resident MC's, will keep the atmosphere alive and your feet tapping, and a licensed bar will provide drinks and snacks to keep your spirits high.
The evening dance is a highlight of the weekend and is sure to be popular. Tickets are £(tbc) each and should be purchased in advance by clicking the link below (and can be purchased individually or as a combined deal with a day entry ticket).
You can be an early-bird and book your tickets in advance byclicking here(from late Summer 2020) or simply show up and pay at the gate on the day.
A 'day ticket' admits one person to the daytime event on either Saturday or Sunday, or why not purchase a 'combined ticket' which also allows entry to our spectacular evening entertainment and saves you money!
If you are planning to visit us on a 'Combined Ticket' (giving entry on Saturday or Sunday and the Saturday evening), there will be a break between the Saturday daytime event, ending at 5pm and the evening event, beginning at 7pm. Visitors may be required to leave the main display area for this period. All other visitors must leave by 5:30pm.
