How is 2016 treating you so far? If you're anything like me and Mr VL then you'll be just itching to get back to some of the vintage events which are so frequent during the summer. Happily though there are a few events on the horizon, this month and the next, which can quell your appetite for vintage be that shopping, dancing or partying. I was very happy to realise that there are a couple of events coming up next week and I thought I would share them with you all and get back to my what's on posts. These events are correct at time of publishing and have found out about them via various sources on the internet please go to the events directly for further information and tickets so as to avoid disappointment.

1940s Ladies Evening, Woodhall Spa
This Saturday the great folks who organise the 1940's weekend in Woodhall Spa are putting on a Ladies Evening to raise funds for the weekend which costs thousands each year to put on. They have put this event on before but this is the first time I will be able to attend. I'm really looking forward to going and I think it's really good value for money considering how much you get for the price of a ticket.

The January Jive, Baston
Down at Baston, near Bourne, they are also having a 1940's evening to raise funds for their 40's weekend too. I've been to their 1940's weekend a couple of times before and it has always been fun and friendly. The January Jive is taking place at The Baskervilles Hotel in Baston. They have a live singer, Rachel Bea, and also dance music put on by The Blitz Dancers. At only £6 a ticket it sounds like it's going to be a great night. For enquiries call 01778 561148. To find out more about their 40's weekend pop over to their website www.bastonblitz.org
It all seems to be happening this Saturday but sadly I haven't mastered being in two places at once and so I have had to choose which I will be going to. Since I love Woodhall Spa 1940's weekend, it's close, and some friends are going the Ladies' Evening was the best choice for me.
What are your plans for next weekend folks? Will you be going to either of the events above? Perhaps you know of an event I haven't mentioned? I'd love to know!
