Absolutely buzzing to be at Twinwood Festival again this year !! the video below is our set up last year for our first trading at this fabulous event .. The history here at Twinwood is just fabulous ..
In addition to the vast array of live music, Twinwood Festival also hosts a large number of trader stalls, displays and museums, showcasing or selling all things vintage, from fashion and hairstyling, to arts and antiques, to motors and militaria. Read on for a rundown of the many excellent permanent displays and museums hosted at our historic Twinwood Airfield site,
During WWII, Twinwood Airfield was a RAF training base. During this time, Glenn Miller and his Orchestra were based in nearby Bedford as a safer alternative to London, and Glenn Miller and his band members regularly used RAF Twinwood Airfield. On August 27th 1944, Glenn Miller performed a special concert at RAF Twinwood. It was the only outdoor concert he performed at a British base. Later that year, on December 15th 1944, Major Glenn Miller was due to leave England for France. He boarded a Norseman aircraft outside Twinwood Control Tower, and he was never seen again. This sparked a mystery that has fascinated the world ever since... its a must see for sure ..
there is just so much to do at this fabulous event that you actually forget about the outside world as it is now and feel part of a community whilst being here at Twinwood .. This event is just perfect for all the family ! for more info click here
