The Trip Out & Goodwood


As far as retro events go, we've seen it all! In September, Hannah, me and some others explored what Britain has to offer in the world of old vehicles, fashion and music.

The Trip Out

The Trip Out is one of my favourite events of the yearThis small but unorthodox party brings together some of the grooviest car and motorbike enthusiasts from all across Europe. But we're not just talking about enthusiasts that have a love for stock vintage motors that have come straight out of the factory. Oh no. We are talking about groups of people that have a passion for designing, building and altering their own rides. Practicality is thrown out the window as motors get faster, slicker, more outrageous.

This show also features groovy bands, this year there was a Doors tribute band The Doors Alive, who are the closest we'll ever get to the real thing. In the day there are vintage clothes stalls to peruse, skating competitions, a bomberdrome and of course The Meyer Dancers who are the grooviest go-go dancers ever! There is also the chance to win a custom motorbike every year, but we haven't managed to win one yet. Still, a funky weekend!











The Goodwood Revival

Whilst the Trip Out is a small event which focuses on alternative trends, The Goodwood Revival is one of the biggest vintage events in Europe, and engages with the history of motor sport. The dress code is either 40's, 50's or 60's attire, so of course we went for some 60's outfits!

There is so much to do including watching car racing on the Goodwood race track, going shopping and listening to the rad retro tunes - you could even spend the whole time looking in the car park to be honest. Amongst the jukeboxes and jerry cans there's a very real feel to the whole place - the high street installation featuring the 1950's Tesco feels so authentic that I'm sure I've travelled back in time.
