and much more! DUST OFF THOSE DANCING SHOES!
RETRO lovers are dusting off their dancing shoes – from blue suede to platform - as Workington prepares to take a step back in time for the town’s first festival of its kind – Vintage in the Town (VITT).
Throughout the day there will be a rare opportunity to visit the Port - an area usually off limits to the public – thanks to a free shuttle service of classic buses from the Workington Transport Heritage Trust.
Here they will be able to get up close to the new £2million Shannon class lifeboat – the Dorothy May White, on display here for the occasion.
The RNLI is the nominated charity for the festival, with proceeds going towards this next generation all-weather vessel.
VITT coincides with the 90th year since the opening of the Port’s Prince of Wales Dock by the controversial royal whose name it bears.
More than thirty traders from across the region will be housed in a marquee erected on the car park on Ladies Walk.
The event will take place in the Washington Square Shopping Centre, with additional support from Allerdale Council, Workington Town Council and Workington Rotary Club.
Lakes College students are also creating an art trail, in keeping with the theme of the festival.
