EVESHAM town centre was transported back in time this Bank Holiday as it was taken over by the VE Vintage Festival.

This year saw the second ever vintage festival in Evesham and it was a resounding success as people flocked to the town to enjoy the event, shop at the stalls and take in the sounds of days gone by.

Over the two days of the event, Sunday and Monday, there was Lindy Hop Dancing, performances by a range of people, including the popular Kitten Von Mew and local act Ruby Lamont.

Organiser Lizzie Taylor-Smith said she was delighted with the festival's success.

"It was very good," she said. "It seemed to be busier than last year. Everything went really well and everyone enjoyed it.

"Judging by Facebook and everything it was a huge success. Everyone was raving about it. People were saying it really brought the town to life and should be done more often, so I am really pleased.

"There was so many highlights. The Lindy Hop session, the D-Day dolls, they were amazing and Nick Brown and Ruby Lamont. She was fabulous.

"And Kitten Von Mew, she is going to be the face of the festival from now on."

And such was the success the festival is now firmly on the town's event calendar.

"It's definitely one fore next year, it will be stepped up next year. Hopefully we can get the sun shining on us again.

"We did have a lot of VWs turn up this year and war time vehicles, as they were promoting Wartime in the Vale taking place on June 21 and 22 at Ashdown Farm.

"It was all a hug success."
