The weather forecast was not looking promising for our outdoor event on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July at the wonderful Millets Farm Centre near Abingdon. But we took the chance and are so glad we did!
Our first – and so far only – event of the year was fun! It was so nice to get back to work with emails, excel sheets, booking forms, meetings and floor plans and we have to say that the staff at Milestones Museum in Basingstoke were a pleasure to work with!
(Lyn) This is one of my favourite events in that there is lots going on in a beautiful and historical setting and it is full of beautifully and authentically dressed re-enactors as well as enthusiastic families all enjoying a well organised day out.
Those of you who follow us will know that the previous 2 years when we have held our weekend event here in July, the weather has been absolutely scorching making the marquee into a bit of a sauna.
Sunday 16th June saw us back in the vintage marquee at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst’s Open Day.
Ruby’s was delighted to return to this fine old historic building in the centre of Abingdon last Saturday, 18th May. The building had been closed for refurbishment and this also meant that we could not use the main Abbey Room as we had done in previous years. But we were able to use two of the oldest rooms in the building to showcase the finest of true vintage and the best of good retro to the good people of the town and beyond.
