11 September 2017

 

The Goodwood Revival 10th Anniversary event (September 8-10th) was long anitispated, not only by the guests attending, but Avtrade who presented The Freddie March Spirit of Aviation Exibition (FMSoA). The vintage revival spirit was fully embraised by all who attending, with the esquisite aircraft along side the era style outfits allowed everyone to truly step back in time and experience the delights of the 40's and 60's for this three day vintage festival.

The Freddie March Spirit of Aviation presented by Avtrade was filled with delights. The planes were a talking point amoung guests at the event and carried a real sense of nostalgia.

The Hand made boxes were painted, stamped, built and delivered to Goodwood to be used as perimeter banners for the FMSoA area. The Avtrade Airstream was staffed with Avtrades own airhosts and hostesses in period dress, providing a great area for Avtrade guests to experience the truly unique nature of this prestigous event, whilst adding some Avtrade colour to the already impressive FMSoA area. The meticulous details from area layouts to making up each indivuals ticket wallets has astounded not only guest but the staff at Avtrade of everyones commitment to the event. 

                                                         

 

                                                                                
 

 

The whole event carried a real aura of the 1940's to 1960's which could be felt across the entirety of Revival. Avtrades incredible attention to detail was noted by all and the effort that was made was reflected in the grand presentation that Avtrade provided. The whole of the Revival at Goodwood was staged in periodic dress leading to the tweed style of dress for men, and furs and frocks for the ladies in attendance being fully embraised. The Avtrade 3D posters were placed throughout the FMSoA exhibition area allowing ticket- holders to take snaps of themselves. These will be collated and a winner shall be annouced to win the Bose Speaker Bundle after the 17th September.
