Bring out the bunting! Bantock House Museum will be stepping back in time when it throws a Vintage Garden Party this weekend.

Among the attractions will be 30 stalls selling vintage and handcrafted items including clothing, accessories, homewares and collectables, while Westacres Primary School PTA will be hosting vintage fun and games including hook-a-duck and hoopla.

The Friends of Bantock House will be providing children's activities in the morning and rustling up delicious strawberry teas in the afternoon, while vintage cocktails will be served by Sugamuffins.

There will be live performances throughout the day from renowned local 1940s-style singers Laura Bill and Sarah Raymond and folk band Hendane. Meanwhile, vintage cars will be on display, including a Sunbeam built in Wolverhampton.

The Vintage Garden Party is being organised in partnership with Dawn Melis of Wolverhampton's Vintage Fairs and takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday (29 June, 2013).

Bantock House Museum Curator Helen Steatham said: "We'd like to invite everyone to come and join us for a glorious Vintage Garden Party in the beautiful surroundings of Bantock House and Park. It promises something for everyone and should be a fun-packed day for all the family."
