Happy Anniversary to Us at FolkEast

Here at The Secret Vintage we are thrilled to be able to celebrate a successful year of fairs and vintage fun, so during the forthcoming bank holiday weekend (exactly a year since our first fair) on the 23rd-25th August we are going on tour to the Folk East festival at Glemham Hall.  

Folk East
Taking place in the glorious landscaped gardens at Glemham Hall, near Woodbridge, the festival offers an eclectic mix of innovative artists, featuring both traditional and contemporary folk music. In addition to the top caliber music on offer, there’s a full and varied programme of activities and events both on and off site. And new for this year is the vintage area- fetauring ourselves in the Secret Vintage Fair marquee, a vintage Tea Tent, and a vintage mobile cinema.

Something Special
We wanted to do something extra special to celebrate our first year anniversary, and teaming up with Folk East is a really exciting opportunity- not only can are we expecting the usual high quality vintage traders but we'll also get to be part of a fantastic local festival.  As with all our fairs we like to put something back into the local community, and so we’ll be running a prize draw with all proceeds going to support local causes in and around Little Glenham and Woodbridge. 

Plus we’ll be getting into the festival spirit – we’re staying in a beautiful camper van called Mrs Beeton from Custard Campers.  If you are down on the day and would like a tour of the camper van get in touch and we'll show you around (and we promise to tidy up first!) 
There’s no entry fee to come and see The Secret Vintage Fair, so once you're in the festival you can come straight in for a rummage for some vintage, upcycled or handmade treasures. Once again we have a vintage hair stylist on site too so there is no need to suffer from festival hair disasters!
