In spite of the best efforts of the elements and the Met Office forecast the 5th Annual Turner Locker Barnfield Revival was again a roaring success.
Despite the dark, dreary and very wet early morning the ‘Dunkirk spirit’ prevailed and drivers braved the deluge to fill the Barnfield Crescent in central Exeter with the sounds, sights and smells of bygone eras. Some 60 cars and many motorbikes trusted the improving forecast and were rewarded when early storm clouds and rain blew over to reveal crisp blues skies. A wonderful variety vehicles were on display dating from the 1920’s, through to the swinging 60’s, from a Jaguar racing car to a Jowett Bradford pick-up. Fabulous British classics rubbed wings/fenders with Americana. The Bentleys to minis, delicate pre-war English sports cars to American muscle cars.
Thankfully very audible over the burble of engine were the regular headline act Siren Sisters, a vintage close-harmony vocal trio supported by local trio the Sundogs whilst the dance floor was filled by Lindy-hop dancers.
Sustenance for drivers, riders, dancers & guests was supplied by Lemon Jelli, Timber Coffee, Good Game, Fizz Bizz & Flaming Good Pizza company.
The events is put on and sponsored by Turner Locker Barnfield Ltd commercial property agents and supported by creative agency, Toucan Design & Andrew Butler photography. This year money was raised for Blesma.(Who provide support to limbless and injured veterans for life).
