The delightful Exmoor market town of Dulverton again held its fun filled Vintage Fair on Sunday 4 September.  The Exmoor Lawns beside the River Barle thronged with people enjoying entertainment and stalls from the post war era.  Despite some light drizzle trying to spoil the occasion during the day, the show went on and the downpours stayed away!

The fabulous Liberty Sisters sang their favourite numbers from the 1940’s and 50’s, with the energetic South West Lindy Hoppers dancing and lindyhopping along.  The ebullient Hot House Combo brought their special blend of swinging jazz to get all toes tapping.  Many visitors dressed in the clothes of the period to add to the atmosphere, particularly those from the North Devon Sports and Classic Car Club who brought along their beautiful historic vehicles.


Clare Fairburn, one of the three singing Liberty Sisters, spoke about the event on BBC Radio Somerset earlier in the day saying: “The Dulverton Vintage Fair is one of our favourite places to perform, with a lively and friendly atmosphere and a carefully curated collection of stalls.  A not to be missed event!”

Images above capture the mood of the day, taken by local photographer Simon Ellery.


A wide array of stalls kept the visitors busy shopping with a great variety of vintage clothing, vintage style homeware, brocante, antiques, baskets and more.  Refreshments included a cocktail bar run by Dulverton’s own award-winning Exmoor Distillery and beer from local Wiveliscombe brewery Nuttycombe Brewery.


The event was generously sponsored by local businesses Exmoor Distillery and Seddons Estate Agents; and through the event the organisers and Dulverton Town Council were proud to be helping the CareMoor for Exmoor initiative which supports nature and heritage conservation across Exmoor National Park.

April 2nd is the date for what it is hoped will be the first in a series of classical music concerts in Dulverton.  Caroline Clipsham will give a recital of piano pieces including works by Chopin, Beethoven , Brahms and Rachmaninov.


Caroline has won numerous scholarships and prizes during the course of her lifetime in music.  She has performed at the Wigmore Hall  and St. John’s, Smith Square in London as well as in performances around Europe, Canada , New Zealand and Eastern Europe.


The venue for the recital will be the premises of Exmoor Studios, in the centre of Dulverton.  The building is a converted bank which has been re-purposed as a recording and performance space, with broadcast quality sound and lighting equipment.  It is a small, intimate space and the organiser, Nigel Penfold, believes that it is particularly suited to solo performances of classical music.  The performers will not be distanced from the audience, and the personal contact between the music, the player and the audience will be enhanced.


Copies of Caroline’s CD’s and DVD’s will be available for purchase at £10 each.


Tickets are £15.00, to include a glass of wine and can be purchased from www.bookwhen.com/classic.

Doors will open at   7.30p, and the performance will begin at 8 p.m. prompt.

There will be an interval and the recital will finish at about 9.30pm.
