By popular demand, the pretty Exmoor market town of Dulverton is again holding its exciting Vintage Fair this year. On Sunday 4 September you will discover a celebration of vintage style suitable for all the family from 12 noon to 5pm on the Exmoor Lawns beside the River Barle. The event attracted over 1800 visitors to join in the fun last year, and it is hoped that this year’s event will be just as well attended.
The fabulous Liberty Sisters will be singing 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 will bring their special blend of swinging jazz to get all toes tapping. Visitors dressing in the clothes of the period are definitely encouraged!
There’ll be a wide array of stalls selling a great variety of vintage and retro clothing, vintage style homeware, brocante, jewellery, gifts, antiques, baskets and lots more.
Unique WWII military vehicles and vintage tractors will be there, as well as a host of historic vehicles from the North Devon Sports and Classic Car Club. The organisers are delighted that this year a rare 1943 Half Track (an American armoured personnel carrier) will make an appearance at the Fair.
Traditional tea, cakes and other hot and cold refreshments will keep visitors fed and watered – including a Cocktail Bar run by Dulverton’s own award-winning Exmoor Distillery and beer from local Wiveliscombe brewery Nuttycombe Brewery.
The event is generously sponsored by local businesses Exmoor Distillery and Seddons Estate Agents; and through the event the organisers and Dulverton Town Council are proud to be helping the CareMoor for Exmoor initiative which supports nature and heritage conservation across Exmoor National Park.
