Ashbourne is Bunting Town

3rd Jun 2013

Summer has arrived and the bunting has gone up in Ashbourne and this year the bunting has been further extended to cover Wellington Yard where Vintage Bluebird is located.

The tradition of covering the town in bunting has been going on for more than ten years and hit national news headlines last year as part of the Jubilee celebrations. The bunting is actually hung to celebrate the commencement of the great Summer events in Ashbourne; International StreetFest, Ashbourne Festival and Highland Gathering. There are 8 to 9 miles of red, white and blue bunting and it takes nearly 3 weeks to install but the results are breathtaking and draw attention to this quaint little town.

Ashbourne is well worth visiting during the summer months; either as a destination in its own right or as a stop off point when visiting Dove Dale, Ilam Hall, or Tissington Village. And while you are visiting you will be more than welcome to drop in on us at Vintage Bluebird Gifts and Interiors.

We also make handmade bunting at Vintage Bluebird; for enquiries telephone 01335 347515 or e-mail
