Win a family VIP weekend

Win a family VIP weekend


Killerton National Trust estate near Exeter has teamed up with ‘Crikey it’s Vintage’ to put on a two-day ultimate blast from the past on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June.

Killerton’s historic parkland and landscaped gardens will be transformed into a retro extravaganza of over 60 stalls selling vintage fashion, homeware, antiques and paraphernalia.

There will also be fairground rides, a cocktail caravan called Norman, fashion shows, beauty parlour, classic cars, vintage wedding emporium and craft making workshops.

To get visitors into the vintage groove local band High Society will be performing old time classics on Saturday. On Sunday Jive swing dancers will get everybody up and dancing.

On the evening of Saturday, 22 June from 6.30pm, the daytime activities merge into an opulent twilight event. Enjoy an open air concert with 1940s singer Lola Lamour and her blue light boys.

To help get you into the vintage swing there’s an opportunity to squeeze in some late night shopping and add some panache at a beauty parlour. Sip old time classic cocktails and sit back to be entertained by cheeky burlesque dancers before taking to the floor yourself and dancing the night away to a vintage DJ.

Early bird tickets are on sale now until Wednesday, 19 June. Two daytime passes for adults are £6 and £4 for children available from or by calling 0844 249 1895.

On the gate, two daytime passes for adults are £9.60 and £4.60 for children.

National Trust members will receive free entry.

Tickets for the Lola Lamour evening are adults £18.50, children £10.
