As you know by now OVFM had a stall at the 2018 Big O Vintage Festival held in Priory Gardens on a sweltering Saturday July 7th and despite the football distracting many people, there was a fair turn out across the whole day to enjoy the various stalls and displays and partake in the amusements on hand.
Our stall was set in the “community” section of the set-up, which was in the actual garden part of the Priory landscape away from main festivities but still open to many visitors and passers by, including the Mayor of Bromley (seen below with our chairman Jane Oliver)!
Thanks to the efforts of John and Ann Epton who organised this for the club and other members who turned out on the day to help out either with setting up or engaging with the public, OVFM made an impression attracting some interest from the many visitors to the event.

On the stand we will have information material, handouts, posters and we will have a ‘large’ camera and a boom mike and will be hopefully conducting interviews with various members of the public. Some real some staged.
Our theme will be to focus on the collection of material and anecdotes to enhance the scope of the various History of Orpington films that we are making.
Various members of OVFM have offered help on the day. The details and the timings have been sent to them via email, so please mark on the form the times, in hourly blocks when you will be able to attend and or prefer to be on the stand and return to John Epton.
We hope that when visiting the Stand you will also be able to do some Newsreel filming for the event in general.
To help publicise the event we have a poster ready for downloading and printing which you will find HERE.
Thanks for reading and we hope to see as many of you as possible on the 7th of July!
