Frome’s First Vintage Weekend!
Next weekend (18th & 19th April) the Cheese & Grain are running Frome’s first Vintage Weekend which is a celebration of everything Vintage!
The Saturday hosts the very popular Vintage Bazaar 9am – 3pm which is a regular visitor to the Cheese & Grain, they have gained an excellent reputation and have a huge array of stalls from fashions to household items.
For those who would like to learn Rock N Roll there is a very special dance class on Saturday 6pm – 7pm with the Melksham Rock N Roll Club. This class costs just £2 or free if you have a ticket for the swing superstars King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys! To book the workshop call 01373 455 420.
King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are not just the world’s greatest swing & R&B band, they are an institution! The band have been on the road for almost three decades playing every European country as well as touring the USA, Russia and the MiddleEast, recording ten CDs. Dazzling musicianship, riveting stage performances, more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts have established them as the Kings of Swing.
This will be a fabulous evening of dancing along to the best in R&B and swing music, not to be missed! Tickets are only £12 advance/ £15 on the door. There is a special group offer of book 6 and pay for 5, so get friends together and come along, you will not be disappointed! Doors 7:30pm. Support is from local band Harlem Rhythm Cats.
After all the partying on Saturday night come along on Sunday 10am – 5pm to enjoy the Classic Cars and wonderful Vintage Fashion stalls with a Fashion Show 2pm in the hall. There will also be live music outside on the terrace.
We are also delighted to welcome the Anonymous Travelling Market with their happy band of stallholders along to tempt you with their artisan products.
Our cafe will be serving cream teas and on Sunday a very special Afternoon Tea, ideal to enjoy while watching the fashion show.
Sunday evening features Jazz Club in the bar with Jon Amour on Sunday evening to wrap everything up.
On both days of the weekend we are lucky to have the fabulous Vintage Victory Rollers a pop up beauty salon ready to transform you into a vintage goddess for the day with their updo’s and make-up. It is recommended to pre-book your appointment and contact Raye directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
