Vintage Village

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

In the Vintage Village marquee, you can visit a fantastic selection of stalls selling jewellery, clothing, homeware, and gifts.

In previous years we've enjoyed excellent performances from Bunny Nightingale, The Bluebirds, and The Femmes on the Village Green Bandstand. In the marquee, we've enjoyed a mix of wartime favourites and tunes from a bygone era from DJUXB and we've joined Jitterbug Jive for a dance! 

Visitors could pop along to Daisy's Vintage Tea Room for some traditional cheese on toast, delicious cakes, and a cracking cup of tea.

On the Village Green, we've had attractions such as the Boscombe Down Aviation SocietyThe Military Vehicle Trust, The Royal Observer Corps, a Fun Fair, and the Pilot's Mess Pub!

  • "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."
