Vintage Village

The Vintage Village at the Air Tattoo is like taking a step back in time to revel in the extravaganza of nostalgic experiences.



Discover the Vintage Village


In 2019...

You could embrace all things vintage with our fantastic selection of stalls selling jewellery, clothing, homeware, and gifts! Vintage Victory Rollers were back again this year offering vintage-inspired makeovers.








We had the perfect place for you to put your feet up with a spot of tea and cake! You could pop along to Daisy's Vintage Tea Room. Take it from us the cakes were delicious!




Inside the themed marquee was a packed programme of wonderful entertainment, including professional singers, dancing, and a DJ. The style was, of course, a mix of wartime favourites and tunes from a bygone era, spiced with some foot-stomping jumping and jiving.



There were also many outdoor attractions such as the Boscombe Down Aviation Society, the Military Vehicle Trust, The Royal Observers Corps, a Fun Fair, and the Pilots Mess Pub!




Customer Testimonials

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Cream tea and entertainment were excellent!"
  • "This is my current favourite place in the showground to visit when I am not looking at aeroplanes! The atmosphere is great, the stalls are interesting, the food of a much better quality than the takeaway places, and the entertainment is great fun."
  • "Always lovely to bring some nostalgia to the event. I'm very interested in the history of WWI and WWII so I always find the Vintage Village fascinating, the ladies singing were excellent."
