The popular seaside festival attracted more than 30,000 people who enjoyed elements of popular culture from the 1920s to the 1970s.
Festivalgoers were treated to live music from the likes of Swing Unlimited Big Band, Phil Halley and His Comments, Be Bop A Lula – Gene Vincent Tribute, Andy Kennet as Elvis and Andy Shailer – Crazy Rhythm Jukebox. There were vintage-themed workshops and displays, a vintage fashion show and colouring competition, with face painting and fairground rides for younger visitors.
One of the highlights of the weekend – The Show and Shine Car Show – was won by a Ford Skyline Retractable 1963 owned by Lee Caves.
Mandy Polkey, managing director of Stir Events CIC, leading the team behind Shake and Stir, said: “It was so fantastic to see such a great turn out this year, so many people really dressed to impress. Bringing the community together in this way was such a joy as a marvellous way to start the summer off. Thank you to all of the volunteers and team, as well as the sponsors who made the day such a success.”
