THOUSANDS descended on Poole Quay with the area a stage of singing, dancing and style for Poole Goes Vintage on Sunday.

The all-day event saw large crowds from the outset at 11am, as people engaged with the range of stalls, cars and displays along the quay.

The celebration of all things vintage, which is in its third year, continues to grow in popularity.

Organisers of the event have hopes that it will soon run over two days in the not too distant future.

Karl Stokes, who manages Real Vintage in Poole, organises the day's proceedings alongside Poole Tourism.

"We've got nearly 30 traders here today, a full line up of music, DJ's, classic cars, just everything you could imagine for a vintage event," Mr Stokes said.

"We estimated last year we had 10,000 visitors come to the quay and it looks even more popular this time.

"I think local business support this event really well. The Lord Nelson have sponsored bands playing in their premises and others all along the quay are getting involved with the event."

"The event brings people from all over to the town. I've met people from Birmingham, Warwick and Chester so people are really coming down and this is becoming a tourist attraction. We're firmly established on the vintage scene.

"We would love to see this event take place over a full weekend as part of the Poole Bid drawing more tourists to the town."

Live music was provided by a number of acts including band Junco Shakers, singer Miss Annie and duet The Aphrodites.

The event also featured a fashion show and a variety of trade stalls offering visitors a wide selection of vintage goods to buy.
