Cornmarket, Louth Lincolnshire LN11 9PY
Step back in time for a vintage-inspired event with Lindy Hop dancing led by 52nd Street Jump (Louth Lindy Hop Club), plus vintage market stalls and other classic treats.
As part of the Vintage Day it is planned to have a display of classic cars. Capri Gear are donating two prizes, one for a Ford Capri, one for a non-Capri. Cars will need to be parked-up by early and will need to be left in position until late.
Come in costume (if you wish), soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the pop-up pavement cafe culture! A FREE event.

KING PLEASURE & THE BISCUIT BOYS
2018 sees King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys celebrate a remarkable 30 years on the road. More than the greatest jump, jive and swing band on the planet, they’ve become an institution. Rough, tough and always rocking, the band have played nearly 6500 performances in 21 countries, in that time performing alongside B.B. King, Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, Ray Charles, and the actual Blues Brothers Band.
