Welshpool WW2 Weekend 2019

Welshpool WW2 Weekend 2019

Here are a few pictures I snapped of the event. Was lovely to see my friend Jayne Darling again! Just a shame that there aren’t more vintage people attending the event, there is mostly general public. Hopefully it will see more through the years.

A wonderfully colourful sweet shop on the main road. If you look past the gaudy window stickers, you can see some Art Nouveau mirror borders with flowers and the word ‘Toffee.’ Very tricky to photograph, but absolutely stunning.

Inside the town hall where I had my vintage stall and performed on the stage. Always lovely stall holders and relaxed atmosphere up there.

Welshpool 40’s Weekend 2019


Looking forward to seeing everyone at Welshpool 1940’s Weekend! Again, I will be there on the Saturday only, upstairs in the town hall. Look out for my stall as I will have many pieces of clothing, hats and accessories out of my personal collection. Have your hair styled by Karen D Bebbington and then sit with a cup of tea and enjoy the music!

My performance times are 11.15am and 2.40pm on the Town Hall stage.

Southam Retro Revival 2019

Southam Retro Revival 2019

Well it’s only a week away and I can’t wait! Southam Retro Revival will be taking over the town with vintage cars, stalls and entertainment. I’ll be on stage at 12.55pm AND hosting a stall of my vintage and vintage inspired stuff. I’ll have clothing, accessories and some homeware, so make room in your cars to bring home a load of goodies!

Goodwood Revival 2012

Murray Walker and Kitten von Mew, Goodwood 2011

With only 9 days left until the glory of Goodwood Revival yet again zooms it’s way around the track, I thought I would tell you some exciting developments for this year’s show! Revival is far from just classic car racing Catnips, it is a full day of entertainment, vintage and vintage inspired stalls, aircraft displays, famous racing car displays and more!

Goodwood Revival Party 2010 with Kitten and Lord March

This year is especially exciting for me as they are featuring a new entertainments section called Over The Road, which is more early 1940’s inspired than the 1948-1966 areas that are usually on offer! Here you will find the famous Chap Olympiad (Ok, so they are more 20’s/30’s, but they are also a complete hoot and worth watching!) and Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer who wraps in a King’s English accent over hip hop soundtracks and also pays the banjo splendidly(I will be sneakily trying to catch a glimpse myself as YouTube videos will not quench my thirst for his eclectic rhythm). As well as this there will be other pieces of entertainment in the Victory Street Party, which hosts a variety of stalls, an Earl Grey Tea Shop (yum!) and 2 hilarious eateries/ watering holes named Dig For Victory (think salads and fruit smoothies) and the Spit n Sawdust pub!

I will be there in my RAF corset doing meet and greets and posing for pictures, so please collar me as I walk by for a photo and chat! I hope to see many regular faces as well as new ones and remember to take the opportunity to dress up and join in the fun!

Retro Revival 1940s Event

So Mr. Moo emailed me earlier today and said something on the lines of “Well gee-whizz Mrs Mew, did you see the fabulous image Retro Revival are using on their advertisement of you?”

As I had never heard of the event I went and had a peek…Low and behold it is being organised by my gorgeously purrfect pals at Friends of the 40’s!

I have performed in Manchester and Sheffield, but never Liverpool and Ian and Sam have invited me to make an appearance at the event! I will be performing at Goodwood Revival the weekend before and am determined NOT to get laryngitis this time, so hopefully I will be singing for you at Retro Revival and will pose for photos too! You will see me in my ATS corset along with another vintage outfit (coverage will depend on the weather).

So if you are around the Merseyside area or looking for a 1940’s event more “Up t’ North like”, pop along to this Saturday event!
