This sounds like a hoot. You get to step back in time and join the elegant Miss Chrissy from The Lindy Charm School as she hosts a glamorous vintage pool side fashion party at the famous National Trust property Rippon Lea.
The parade showcases the stunning poolside wear from yesteryear.
It is being described as a Vintage Beach Pajama, Holiday, Summer Deco Fashion Parade and it is being put on Vanessa Mangan and Tessa Rickard from The Vintage Emporium.
If you buy a Soiree ticket, then you gain entry to the Vintage Marketplace included in the ticket!
At this event, you will really find yourself 'keeping up with the Jones.' Louisa Nathan became Mrs Jones in 1921 when she married lawyer Timothy Jones.
After inheriting the amazing Rippon Lea property in 1935, she decided to modernise. She was influenced by Hollywood movies of the time thus the inspiring pool. She also put in the amazing ballroom as she was quite the party thrower.
The house was famous for entertaining and charity functions. Parties were held by the pool.
Now history really is repeating itself with this fun pool party. Come dressed to impress by the pool for your chance to win a prize for the best dressed.

Please note: swimming is not allowed in the historical pool. Which probably works well as you would not want to ruin those vintage bathers.
