Based in the brilliant old market town of Ulverston, Retro Rendezvous is a full weekend of fabulous retro fun.
Highlights include music, food, dance, cinema, clothes, markets, cars, motorcycles, drinks and the famous Velo Retro old school cycling events through the Lake District World Heritage Site. It’s about as much fun as you can have with your retro clothes on! So put it in the diary and get ready for one of the great weekends of the summer. Classic cars and motorcycles will be seen in the town on both days, and the pop-up vintage tea room will be housed at the Coronation Hall.
The Roxy, Ulverston’s very own art deco cinema, will be showing a classic film as part of Retro Rendezvous. The full package includes cocktails downstairs in the Laurel & Hardy Museum, whilst listening to live music, then a glamorous stroll upstairs to view the film. Tickets will be available online once all the details have been confirmed.
