Visitors to Skegness Vintage Festival had a trip back in time to an age when fairground rides where gentler and a treat was afternoon tea.

The second vintage festival was held in Tower Gardens on Saturday and Sunday.

It was a celebration of traditional seaside resorts, reminding past and present visitors of the heritage of our coast.

Visitors were entertained with traditional fairground rides and games, such as swing boats and carousels, along with a variety of classic cars.

On both days there was live music from performers including The Daisy Chains, Old Time Rags and many more.

The younger generation were also catered for with performances from Punch and Judy.

The theme continued in the market area with stalls selling seaside themed items, vintage clothes and memorabilia.

Harriet Lawton, Marketing Officer for organisers the Lincolnshire Coastal BID, said: “We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of our second Vintage Seaside Festival,

“It was bigger and better than last year and the crowds that gathered over the weekend really exceeded our expectations’

“It was great to see the seafront so busy on the first weekend of September which is unusual.
