Echoes of History Show 2019

Echoes of History Show 2019

This event has changed site so many times and now has a shiny new name, but will forever been in my heart as Betsy’s first event. At 4 weeks old, she watched Mama sing for the first time and began her journey through the crazy event-filled world that is now her life.

Echoes of History has found a home in Purleigh, not too far from its previous locations. It will grow as word of mouth spreads. The living history areas are fantastic, plenty of eateries, great toilet facilities, main arena shows and live music as well as Air Raid Jive demonstrations too. There were not enough stalls in my opinion, but the organiser did say that it unfortunately clashed with another show. Next year will be better on that front!

There are big plans with this Essex event. A retro area and funfair are in the pipeline, with more classic cars too.

The Saturday was a bit quiet as the winds were getting up to 42mph, causing havoc with gazebos, tents and stylish headwear. Luckily today has been a lot better and a definite increase in public!

I loved singing in the marquee! A mix of 30’s to early 60’s, it went down really well and I even got an encore on my last set!

So what was my highlight? A ride on a tank. Wow what a high!
