Rain does its best to stop play at ‘A Very Vintage Sunday’ but Blitz spirit prevails 

After weeks and weeks of uncharacteristically hot weather it was perhaps typically British that on the day of our ‘Very Vintage Sunday’ event at Wilton Shopping Village the skies opened and a downpour began. 

However, in true British fashion, the rain didn’t completely stop play. 

With a plethora of colourful dresses and 40s-style red lipstick contrasting with the gloomy skies, visitors kept dry and kicked back in a deck chair under our marquee, where they enjoyed performances from the likes of Sticky Toffee Jazz and A Very Vintage Disco. Meanwhile, bargain-hunters hoping to grab a slice of yesteryear for themselves browsed stalls from vintage-inspired retailers such as Nanny Nellie’s Attic and the Magic Pumpkin company. 

Discussing the event, Phil Maclean, Marketing Manager at Wilton Shopping Village, said: “While the weather was certainly frustrating – especially after the heatwave – it was still a great event for our visitors and fantastic to see our site transformed into a vintage wonderland. 

“We hope all our visitors enjoyed it and hope to see them again next year!”
