    The Love Train has gained a reputation internationally for its interactive disco show that is renowned for taking audiences back to the 1970s.

    Fronted by DJ and disco connoisseur Foster Grant, the show promises disco classics, authentic retro scenery, dazzling lights plus Brutus Gold and his team of dancers, performers and musicians.

    Co-founder of Crafty Vintage, Laura Johnson said: “We’re massive fans of The Love Train. It’s the greatest disco show in the world and if there’s any time to get together and celebrate it’s now.

    “Of all the liberties lost during the pandemic, it was sharing the simple pleasures with friends that was the most sorely missed. We can now reacquaint ourselves with hugging, dancing and laughter, and what better way than with a family festival.
