Britain’s biggest vintage music festival returns for the bank holiday weekend when Twinwood takes place in the village of Clapham.

The three-day extravaganza begins on Saturday August 29, showcasing some of the best vintage-themed acts around – all done with timeless style.

The festival, held on a former RAF airfield where Glenn Miller performed in 1944, features a packed programme of music from top swing, jazz and jive bands.

Among the performers are Si Cranstoun and his band, who headline the Sunday night. Si has been honing his vocal talent for many years, performing with his big band across the UK as one of the foremost names on the underground vintage scene. In 2013 he was invited to perform with Little Richard in Las Vegas and came to the attention of Warner Music Entertainment, subsequently being signed by A&R president Conrad Whitey who was captivated by Si’s voice.

Sixties tribute act The Overtones top the bill on the Saturday, with The Revolutionaires Big Band headlining on Sunday, while vintage fashions abound all around.

Three-day tickets cost £96 for adults and £15 for children.
