Early last year, Flo suggested we try out Goodwood Revival. Neither of us had been before but we’d heard lots of great things about it. Fancying a new vintage experience, we picked up tickets. In September, we packed our picnic baskets, dressed to the nines and drove off to Goodwood.
1. Dress Up (if you like)
My better half doesn’t usually dress up for events but he wanted to try a different look for Goodwood. He always looks lovely but he quite enjoyed his suit and bow tie combo. My dress was from Gingermegs Vintage – I adore the print on it!
2. Vintage Shopping
There are lots different vendors at the Revival – some of them are incredibly high-end. Take a stroll along the stalls and you’ll be sure to find something that catches your eye.
Goodwood is spread out over quite a large area and there’s so much to see. People dress up in a variety of styles for the event so it’s worth having a gander at everyone milling around.
4. Fun Fair
Feel like a big kid when you have a giggle at the vintage fun fair. Do not do what I did – lose the skin on your right arm going down the helter skelter.
5. Vehicle Viewing
There are so many stunning, vintage vehicles at Goodwood. From mopeds to classic cars to aircraft, there’s a lot to look at!
Overall, we had a fabulous day out. The tickets for Goodwood Revival are definitely on the pricier side and it’s a busy event – at times a little overwhelming with the number of attendees and everything going on around you. We won’t be attending this year but I’m sure the mood will take us another time. If you love motors of any kind, lots of buzz and mooching about, Goodwood Revival is right up your street!
Thanks as always to the talented @darktechsupport for his photography skills!
