1950s Vintage Day in aid of charity Age Action on Saturday 1st of October

Now here's a lovely idea for a Saturday and all for a very good cause!
A 1950's Vintage day has been organised by the charity Age Action to celebrate ESB Electric Ireland's Positive Aging Week & International Day of Older Persons.

The day begins with The Fox Trot, a gentle stroll around St. Stephen’s Green, down Dawson Street and  finishes in Trinity College with an In The Mood Swing Dance Afternoon Tea Party.

Wear your best classic clothing from the 1950’s & immerse in a day of pure, exclusive vintage entertainment.  Grandparents are encouraged to wheel their baby grandchildren in vintage prams and old style bikes i.e. High Nellies would be very welcome.
 The Irish Veteran and Vintage Car Club will lead the way with their collection of vintage cars.  The walk will start around St. Stephen’s Green, through Dawson Street and end at Front Square Trinity College where we will continue the festivities throughout the afternoon.

When: Saturday 1st October 2011,

What: Dress in your finest cloths from the 1950s and join us for our Foxtrot and Swing Dance Afternoon Tea Party.  Tea/Coffee, sandwiches and pastries followed by all the fun of  Swing.  Lots of prizes to be won the day.  Including a super gift voucher for Dirty Fabulous.

 Tea Party will be held in the Dining Hall, Trinity College, Dublin 2 between 4pm to 6pm (registration is essential – see below).
