The 2019 Rock and Roll Music Festival at Twinwood, Bedford promises to be bigger than ever

Popular retro festival growing in popularity every year

Known among party goers and retro enthusiasts for the great music and dance festival they put together at the Twinwood Farm Airfield just outside Bedford every year, Twinwood Events normally start planning the festival a year ahead of time.

This they do in order to ensure a successful event that takes every last detail into consideration whether that is the accommodation available or the music and dance events themselves. Tickets go on sale well in advance to give enthusiasts time to plan their year as the festival is normally staged during a bank holiday in August when summer still contributes to a feeling of well being and excitement.

For many this has become an event they never miss, and they make sure they book the accommodation, right from glamping opportunities to pitching a tent, and from attending shows to dancing the weekend away well in advance. The emphasis is on music and revisiting the past when rock and roll, swing and the big band provided great entertainment.

Early rock and roll was extremely popular and Elvis and his contemporaries from the 50’s, for example, are brought back in retro style. At Twinwood there is ample opportunity for everybody, no matter which age group you’re from, to rock, to swing, to dance and to have fun.

Twinwood’s Creative Director, Ms Annie Wooding, said during a question and answer session recently, “We have become known as the top provider of this kind of music and dance festival in the UK, and we get a lot of interest from other parts of the world too. That is why we sell such a great number of tickets to locals, but too visitors from overseas as well. The rock and roll bands we bring out, and the opportunities to let your hair hang down, ensure a great time for all. Please have a look at our site and book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.”

The rock and roll bands that perform at Twinwood every year are chosen from among the best retro bands in the country, and in addition to bands from the past new ones are introduced every year.

In addition to listening to the great bands, and to take to the dance floor, there are great opportunities to enjoy many retro inspired activities such as the popular Mr and Miss Vintage, as well as a general store where you can buy your necessities, a hair drying point, a choice of hairstylists and cash points for your convenience.

The choice of eateries makes it easy for all to find what they like and visitors are assured of all amenities that they may need during the few days of the festival.
