Rachel Martin

Hello, I’m Rachel Martin and I am organising the vintage marketplace which will run alongside the music and cycling event at Retro Rendezvous.

I moved back to Ulverston in 1998, and have lived in this wonderful town with my partner and 2 children since then. I was brought up near Urswick and lived in this area until I went to follow my passion for dance at The Laban Centre in London. There I gained a degree in dance theatre but also, living close to Greenwich, which is famous for it’s vintage markets, I gained my passion for all things old and interesting.

This passion remained my own until 2011 when I organised and ran my first ‘Vintage Fair’ which was the first in this area. Only meaning for this to be a ‘one-off’ I had not planned others. However, I was overwhelmed by the response and have since worked with The Dock Museum, Lancaster City Council, Dalton Town Council and of course Ulverston Town Council to help organise events and be part of larger festivals.

I am thrilled to be part of the Retro Rendezvous event and hope it will become a fixture in the festival calendar of our beautiful Ulverston Town.
