This December will see Hay Does Vintage celebrate its first year of vintage events in Hay-on-Wye with their third large Vintage Fayre - ‘Have Yourself a Very VINTAGE Christmas’ - on Sunday, December 1.

All of the events have gone well with good attendance and people talk of the ‘buzz’ that has been created. Their ‘Town of Temptation’ fayre in June saw well over 1,000 people attending. In addition to the large fayre, they’ve been attracting visitors to Hay on the first Friday of the month with a small ‘cherry picked’ fayre called ‘Thank VINTAGE it’s Friday’ in the Buttermarket.

Looking to promote the quality vintage and retro traders that the fayre continues to attract each time, Hay Does Vintage also focuses on promoting the town that the organisers, Jo Hodges and Naomi Parsons, both live in and love.

“We’re really pleased to have completed 12 months of vintage events in Hay and we look forward to hosting more ‘pop up’ events over the coming year,” says Jo.

The weekend of their next event will be a busy one for Hay-on-Wye. The Christmas lights will be lighting up on Friday, November 29 followed by the ever-popular Food Festival to be held on Saturday, November 30 which promotes local food producers.

“It really will be a great weekend to visit Hay and find some special Christmas gifts for your loved ones,” says Naomi.
