GET ready to take a step back in time on Sunday, April 3, at the annual Guildford Heritage Festival.

In the picturesque grounds of Stirling Square, the festival celebrates the region’s rich and diverse cultural heritage with a novel glimpse into the trades, hobbies, cultural activities and everyday living from a bygone era.

It’s a day to take a look back at how our forbears used to live, work and play and gain an awareness of and an appreciation for the significant role the region played in the development of WA.

There will be something for those of all ages and interests with fun-filled activities from yesteryear along with free rides at the Rose and Crown’s Children’s Festival and Vintage, a Veteran and Classic Motor Show along with a display of cars, bikes and memorabilia from the Claremont Speedway days from the WA Classic Speedway Association.

Toes will be tapping to the sounds of Perth bands Mod Squad, The Convicts, Johnny Law and the Pistol Packin Daddies along with Grant Hart, Johnny Young and the Strangers and Perth’s favourite show band from the 80s, The Troupadores.

For lovers of all things vintage, retro, upcycled, rusty, dusty and old – Annie’s Antique, Vintage and Collectables Fair is sure to have many rusty treasures to tempt you.

Free valuations will be available as well but only one item per person is permitted.
