IpSwing Vintage Festival of Music and Dance
12-14 July 2019 – Trinity Park, Ipswich, Suffolk
IpSwing Vintage festival is a fantastic event that will take you back in time with jazz, swing, blues and soul music and dance from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
There are four things that unite the vintage scene – music, dance, fashion and fun! When you put this irresistible combination together with a fabulous tented environment in a rural location, you have described IpSwing Vintage Festival! We are so pleased that last year people said it was like a holiday camp or a big party.
We have taken the vintage holiday camp theme one stage further this year by grouping visitors into “houses” and introducing some fun and games on the sports field. Yes, there will be prizes too!
IpSwing Vintage Festival will also include some dance instruction to introduce a bit of extra fun into your repertoire. With all that dancing and activities we have arranged for stretching sessions and therapists available to assist with tired limbs.
We keep the audience at the centre of the event so you are always close to the fun. There is an avenue of accommodation in bell tents that runs directly down to the stage, dance floor and the catering area. Our catering team this year will be providing food for all tastes and diets, this includes vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and meat eaters. We also have tea rooms, ice cream and a fully equipped bar. We are doing all we can to be sustainable by using compostable tableware. We have specially selected for you bands, singers, DJs, teachers and cabaret that all have fun in their DNA. Even the Royal Air Force will be adding to the fun, by demonstrating the iconic Spitfire on both the Saturday and Sunday.
IpSwing Vintage Festival is a not for profit event and so the profits go to our selected charities this year it is Suffolk Lowland Search & Rescue, and the RAF Benevolent Fund. So when you are having fun you are benefitting these charities – it’s a win win!
