Posted on 18th March 2015

Antique cars and motorcycles turned out in force for the annual Vintage and Retro Festival at the Brunel Centre over the weekend.

The popular event, which took place at the Brunel shopping centre from 14th-15th March, attracted large crowds as visitors were taken back to 1950s America.

Those on holidays in Wiltshire who visited the festival were treated to a host of classic car displays, fashion shows, live music and the death-defying wall of death show – a display that sees motorcyclists ride horizontally in a ring.

The event also saw a classic Mini Cooper being raffled off for the Atwell Wilson Motor Museum and a number of stalls selling a variety of 1950s memorabilia to the public.

One of the owners of the stalls, Andy Gleed, who was selling vintage goods and merchandise, told the This is Wiltshire site, “Vintage is certainly coming back, and there is a much bigger demand for the clothing. It is better made and better quality. It’s actually going up in value, because people reminisce about it.”
