Difficult Times

Coronavirus has closed all theatres, Public Houses and Events. It has put vintage performers and models out of work overnight and will mean that here at Vintage World we have no Vintage events to report on.

Many performers are stuck at home or spending the bulk of their time for the during the duration of this nightmare period in our lives, avoiding contact with others wherever they can.

Many Vintage performers are putting on live Facebook broadcasts from their front rooms and doing a great job keeping in touch with their fans, and we hope, finding many new ones. Their income has dropped to zero so some have added a paypal connection where viewers can express their appreciation and support performers in a practical way.

Vintage models and vintage fashion enthusiasts are even worse off. No events to go to, many photographers in lock down, many in lock down situations themselves.

Here at Cinque Ports Publications, where Vintage World and three other hard-copy magazines are produced, we are in the same boat as many of our friends in the world of vintage, thinking of ways we can survive this uncertain period in the history of the world with no events to cover and members of our team in ‘lock down mode’.

Competition Time

So we have put our heads together and worked out that those stuck indoors are getting as fed-up and bored with the situation as we are. Every one will have a telephone or camera and at least one room where pictures, even selfies, can be created.

We are lunching a series of indoor competitions which may add a bit of fun to your lives and ours. No big prizes (we need all our reserves to keep things going) but all winners will appear in print in Vintage World.

Other pictures may also be published in any of the four magazines and even articles, done on a email question and answer system.

Cause and Effect

War & Peace Revival Day Three

The feud between Scott Elvis and Adam Hoffman continues. Scott parked the outdoor entertainments vehicle outside the door of the Victory Marquee and blasted out Heartbreak Hotel just as Alan  was starting his set inside. Adam saw him off and continued his song.

Adam always gets revenge but Elvis suspected nothing when several fans asked him to sing ‘Devil in Disguise’ in his next appearance.

It all started so well –

Could that be a plan being hatched in the background?

 

Things were happening behind Scott Elvis

 

The shock was real enough

But like the great performer he is – the show went on

The moment he realised who had worked the plan.

Another outstanding day at the War & Peace Revival – It was a bit warm – The fabulous ‘Duettes’ summed the day up. “Too Darned Hot” A fantastic show with amazing performers. Only Today and Tomorrow left. Don’t miss out come on down to The Hop Farm but remember your hat and sun cream.

Victoria & Holly Light Up War & Peace Revival Day One

The Girls in the Yellow Dresses

The Duettes, Holly from Ashford and Victoria from Folkestone, stole the show on the first day of the War & Peace Revival at the Whitbread Hopfields Event Centre, Beltring near Paddock Wood.

Holly & Victoria harmonised brilliantly and reeled off forties and fifties favourites to a packed audience on a blazing hot afternoon in the ‘Dad’s Army’ featured Victory Marquee.

Old favourites Adam Hoffman & Scott Elvis were back with Adam up to his usual tricks – stealing the microphone from Scott as he was about to start his set.

Viv the Spiv, the best compare in the world, conducted affairs with his usual inimitable line of banter, probably with an armful of watches up his sleeve and a few pairs of silk stockings in his pocket.

The show runs on tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Don’t miss out on the finest Military vehicle event on the Globe and its amazing variety of all things vintage, even a 1940s village with the original pub with no beer.

Many pictures and stories from the show will be included in Rye’s Own, Cinque Ports and Hastings Town in the months to come with extra special features in our new Magazine “Vintage World” the first issue of which will be available at Christmas.
