THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN MEMORIAL FLYPAST IS NOW A SPITFIRE AT 15:45 AND NOT THE LANCASTER BOMBER AT 14:15
STOP PRESS, STOP PRESS – The running orders for the main stage and the NAAFI tent entertainment have been updated and are now on the entertainment page.
It was a day the like of which Batley has never seen before, well not since the 1940s at least. On 31 May, 2014 the clock was rolled back, as were the decades and the vintage years came back to town. And what a fantastic day it was. So good, that we just had to do it all again, and we did on 30 May 2015.
And as we had so much fun, we just had to bring back Batley Vintage Day for it’s third year.
We know how much you all enjoyed yourselves from the lovely comments we have received, and from seeing so many people in the town.
We are delighted to confirm that the incomparable Mr Paul Harper will be leading the entertainment on the main stage in the Market Place once again. And Batley’s favourite the lovely Miss Natasha Harper will also be with us once again, with music through the decades.
It wouldn’t be Vintage Day without the NAAFI tent in the memorial gardens. The place to be at both previous events, with music all day long from specialist Vintage DJs Big George and the Andersons, and Major Swing and Kitty. Plus some guest spots from the main stage performers. Mrs M, Mrs T and the NAAFI tent ladies will be back providing tea and buns to keep everyone going.
Our specialist vintage market, organised by the lovely Debi and Kat from AdVintageous returns with even more stalls than before.
With even more vintage vehicles, free arts and crafts workshops in the library and lots of fun activities, make sure you get there early so you have time to see and do everything.
More details will appear on the website over the coming weeks and months, so keep coming back to check for news.
Oh, and keep an eye to the skies!
