VISIT Springhill today on May Bank holiday Monday where the beautiful National Trust property in Moneymore will come to life with the sights and sounds of a bygone era as it hosts a fantastic Vintage Fete.

Pick up some retro and vintage inspired costume, china, jewellery, accessories and other handcrafted items from our quirky range of trade stands. Enjoy the sophisticated sounds of the Swing Gals, one of Northern Ireland’s only all-girl vocal collectives, well known for their close harmonies and interpretations of jazz, pop and easy listening favourites.

Another highlight of the event will be the spectacular display of nostalgic games and attractions; Coconut shys, ‘Splat the Rat’ and ‘Hoopla’ to name but a few will keep the whole family entertained for hours. ‘Punch and Judy’ will also make an appearance as will Springhill’s very own fortune tellers ‘Mystic Meg and her sister Peg’.

Any vintage fete would not be complete without a traditional afternoon tea.
