Well-known event organisers Twinwood Events stage one of the most popular retro events in the UK and Europe every year to ensure that lovers of older music styles such as early rock, and also swing, have the best opportunity to enjoy a great time in the company of spouses, children and friends.
The site where the festival takes place, just outside Bedford, is very accessible from all directions in the UK and within easy reach of London whether you travel by car, bus or train. It is easy to find the RAFT Twinwood Farm Airfield in Bedfordshire, and the company’s website gives the exact directions for those who have not been to the festival before.
Tickets for shows must be booked in advance – online. No tickets are ever sold at the festival. The organisers recommend that you book early as the festival is popular and tickets, also for accommodation, are often sold out way before the weekend.
Ms Annie Wooding, Creative Director of Twinwood Events was quoted during a recent interview, “Our festival has grown tremendously in popularity and I always advise enthusiasts to make their decision early. That is the best way to ensure you get tickets for the shows and the best accommodation to suit your needs and budget. I can say that even at this early stage we have already sold quite a number of tickets for the 23 – 26 August 2019 weekend. Do not wait too long. Many people were disappointed in 2018 because they did not contact us early enough.”
The festival offers something for everybody that can appreciate the music styles, fashions and dance routines of the retro period, i.e. the 40’s and 50’s, but also earlier periods. Come see the rock and roll, swing and other popular, older styles being performed and put on your own dancing shoes. The festival is popular across the board and everybody is welcome, whether you were born and grew up during that period, or whether you are much younger and have an appreciation for the renewed interest in retro times.
The line-up promises to be as good – even better – as that of 2018 and the years preceding it, with some popular bands returning and others being added for your enjoyment. You can book tickets now, and get in touch with Twinwood regarding any questions you may have.
Twinwood Events are based in Clapham Bedford from where we organise various events every year, the most important one being the well-known Twinwood Festival which is steeped in history going back to the days of the famous Glenn Miller and his Orchestra who performed all over the world. The Festival is normally held over a bank holiday weekend and features a line-up that includes various well-known performers from different genres such as Swing, Rock-and-Roll, Northern Soul and other Vintage Music and Dance performers. Different venues include the Twinwood Arena, the Dance Marquee, the Colonial Club and the Control Tower Stage. Accommodation can be booked and food and drinks bought from different eateries to sit down or eat-as-you-go options. Tickets are bought online or over the phone and visitors are advised to book well in advance. For more about us please visit https://twinwoodevents.com/
