Vintage festival pulls in the crowds

THOUSANDS of people turned out for the second Fawley Hill Vintage Festival Weekend.

The three-day celebration of steam-powered and vintage vehicles was organised by Sir William and Lady McAlpine to mark her 70th birthday.

Celebrations kicked off with live music at Rock on the Hill on Friday night, where BBC Radio Berkshire DJ Mike Read and award-winning Elvis tribute act Ben Portsmouth were among the performers.

An extravaganza of vintage vehicles, fairground rides, food and drink and even racing camels, followed on Saturday and Sunday.

Visitors to the estate’s Victorian station took rides on its 101-year-old steam engine, the number 31.
