The Goodwood Revival is not only the world’s most historic motor race meeting but is also the only meeting to be staged completely in a nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.
Here are a few of our favourite moments from the weekend:
That’s right, our favourite time of year, this weekend is Goodwood Revival! We’re back exhibiting in the Revival Market, Stand 103. We look forward to catching up with old friends, making new acquaintances and generally having a good time so stop by, visit us and try on a few pairs of glasses.
Last week’s BBC 2 historical drama Castles in the Sky was the wonderful telling of the invention of the radar which was so important in the Battle of Britain. Starring Eddie Izzard as spectacle-wearing inventor Robert Watson-Watt, actors Alex Jennings and Julian Rhind-Tutt also wore glasses appropriate to the 1940s as Henry Tizzard and Albert Percival Rowe.
Roope Vintage loves exhibiting at Goodwood Revival where there is such a fantastic atmosphere and so much fun to be had! We will be there again this year and are sharing this video we made of last year’s escapades to help to heighten the anticipation.
