THE Vintage Vacation for the Heppest Cats & Kittens!

Voodoo Doll and McLaren Music are proud to present our second Vintage Vacation and it's going to be a Humdinger! 

This is an adults only weekend of great 1940s and 1950s music, hanging out with good friends, the chance to make new ones, dance your socks off, learn some new fancy footwork & dance technique, maybe learn some new dances altogether, wear some of your finest vintage, buy some cool “new” threads or dapper shoes, get your hair done, see some favourite live bands and/or get introduced to some new artists, relax with a drink, laugh, chat, party until dawn plus much, much more! 


Everyone is welcome at this festival, come along and be sure to join in all the fun.
