It was the summer of love at Compton Verney on Saturday 5th August and Ruby’s Vintage & Retro Fair were there to join in the fun.
Our stylish stallholders filled the Galleries, the Old Servants Hall and the Adam Room with carefully curated vintage rocking that 60s vibe and everyone had a jolly time.
No, we’re not the Famous Five – just a simple vintage fair in a marquee for the second time in 3 weeks in this glorious spell of summer weather.
We returned to Millets Farm Centre on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of July to take up their offer of a marquee on the Lower Lawn – it had been used the previous weekend by Blackwells Childrens Books for a book fair.
Another weekend, another marquee!
Yes, we are back under canvas for our first 2 day event at this very popular venue located between Abingdon and Witney,
Our very pretty marquee is set on the Lower Lawn, in front of the lake and near to the childrens’ play area, the merry go round and the petting zoo.
This is a smaller version of the usual Ruby’s Vintage & Retro Fair but is now a regular attraction at this village wide event.
Yattendon is a pretty village in the heart of the West Berkshire countryside and this is the third year that the classic car show has been organised by locals.
It is no secret that Ruby’s at Sandhurst Military Academy Heritage Open Day was the biggest event that we have ever done in our “new” careers as Event Organisers and there was a lot of stress and sleepless nights ahead of Sunday 18th June.
It was a beautiful spring day when Ruby’s rolled into town! We were back in Abingdon for the first time since the Guildhall closed for refurbishment – a totally different kind of venue but just as welcoming! The staff and pupils of Our Lady’s Abingdon school were fully involved in the day and we hope they had fun time like we did.
We are delighted to be back in this pretty market town after 18 months away due to the closure of the Guildhall for refurbishment – how is that going by the way?
Our Lady’s Abingdon, a big school in the centre of town, invited us to bring Ruby’s to them and we are delighted to welcome their Young Enterprise group, The Vinyl Countdown, to our event.
Lyn and Alison are honoured to announce that Ruby’s Vintage & Retro Fair is now By Royal Appointment. Her Majesty Queen Victoria took time from her busy schedule of widowhood to honour Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park with her august presence.
