THOUSANDS of people are expected to pour into Batley this weekend for the town’s popular Vintage Day.
Each year the event attracts people from across the region to the Market Place and Memorial Gardens, where they enjoy music and entertainment from the 1920s through to the 60s.
There was no Vintage Day event last year, but it’s back bigger and better than ever tomorrow (Saturday).
Singers Paul Harper, local lass Natasha Harper and, new for this year, Razor Holler and Satin Dollz will be entertaining the crowds from the main stage, while vintage lovers can check out the AdVintageous market – which has everything from homeware to records and food.
If you take a stroll past Batley Library there’ll be a host of vintage vehicles on display, including sports cars, commercial vehicles, family cars and much more.
You can even pop into the library to try your hand at some vintage skills such as making dolly peg dolls and creating spin art pictures.
Then at around 2.15pm visitors will be treated to a flyover by a Dakota airplane, thanks to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Mrs M’s Naafi tent is also back again where revellers can enjoy an endless supply of tea, cake and the sounds of the 40s and 50s.
Tomorrow’s event runs from 10am until 5pm and is free.
