A RETRO festival is returning to the streets of town this weekend.

Retro Rendezvous will be back in Ulverston town centre offering visitors live music, vintage cars, motorcycles, scooters, cycling and retro market stalls.

The festival will be in Market Street and New Market Street with live music hosted at the Sun Hotel in its beer garden. From Saturday, June 1 to Sunday, June 2 there will be artisan performers and vintage vehicle exhibitors.

Across the weekend artists range from the Mountain Ash with their country music to the 60s to the 90s pop, rock and soul of The Cascaras. Other acts include classic punk rip-snorter band PV-77 and Ulverston-based surf rockers Spiratones.

Ulverston will also be cycling back in time this weekend, hosting the 10th anniversary of the Velo Retro, the largest retro and vintage cycling event in the UK.

The festivity, part of the Retro Rendezvous weekend, has catapulted Ulverston into an international spotlight, attracting entries from not only the UK, but Ireland, mainland Europe, and the USA.

The event is for bicycles that were built before 1987, or replicas of the period, but riders will be out on machines that are up to 100 years old.

Alan Brenton, one of the organisers, said: "The only difference this year is that the Routes Bus will be in the Market Square all weekend.

"Velo Retro is growing significantly this year and we are beginning to get European riders again. There is an international scene around retro cycling. We have got about 470 riders who signed up across the three routes."

Mr Brenton explained that the cyclists make a 'huge difference' in the local economy.

"One of the things I do is to keep an eye on the prices at the Premier Inn for the weekend and I think they sold out several weeks ago and they were up to £300 for the weekend," he added.

"The campsite at Hayfield is fairly full and lots of other places are pretty full. I have had people saying they are struggling to find accommodation."

Although the festival is free of charge, additional events such as the classic comedy movie Some Like It Hot at the Roxy Cinema and the Cycling Speakers at the Laurel and Hardy Museum request tickets to be purchased.
