If you're reading this then you will probably know the well documented story behind this event. If not, here's a quick plotted history;
In 2016 Dawn launched her 'Vintage Weekender' at South Downs Holiday Village just south of Chichester in West Sussex. It was a fantastic 'Hi-De-Hi experience and the response post-event was overwhelming, with people booking straight on for 2017! However within a few weeks of tickets flying out the door, Dawn was devastated to hear that the venue had been sold and due to be demolished. Given that the date for 2017 was in July, it was impossible to relocate in high season and she turned her attention to securing a fabulous new venue for 2018 (Save the date Oct 5th-8th 2018!)
In the meantime, so many people were upset to hear the plight of 2017 and asked Dawn to still hold an event so this primo event organiser took the decision to keep her headline band the globe trotting, world famous JIVE ACES and turn the event into an 'All-Dayer' instead! Keeping it local to Chichester, Dawn turned to a venue she has used many times before for dance and cabaret events WESTBOURNE HOUSE SCHOOL, a beautifully situated private school on the outskirts of the historic city. .
Plans are coming together for another Dawn's Vintage Do extravaganza: Confirmed so far...

and many many other activities and entertainment for guests to enjoy.
Dawn has a true passion for 'experiences' for guests to immerse themselves in the spirit of the 50's & 60's and as such, she won't rest until every piece is put back into the puzzle that nearly got dropped!
