Twinwood Festival 2018 proving increasingly popular for vintage fans

The Twinwood Festival has its beginnings in masters of swing, the Glenn Miller Band. The swing festival was first held on 27 August 1944 with a performance by the famous band at the RAF Twinwood Airfield in Clapham, Bedfordshire, England to an audience of RAF personnel. The stage was a flatbed trailer and the seating was a field not far from the Twinwood Control Tower.
