Pinball Parlour Goes to Lounge On The Farm Festival!
This year Lounge festival goers will get a taste of 20th-century British Youth Culture as The Dreamland Trust hooks up with the Vintage Pinball Parlour and Northern Soul DJ, Jo Wallace, to re- create the vivid sights and sounds of Dreamland.

The Pinball Parlour is pleased to announce that in association with the Dreamland Trust, we are doing a residency at the "Lounge on the Farm" festival, which takes place on 26-28th July. We'll bring the pinball machines and the Dreamland Trust are putting on DJ Jo Wallace!

This does mean that the Parlour will be closed during the weekend of 26-27th July as we can't be in two places at the same time!

More information on the Dreamland Trust can be found at their website, and for more festival information, visit the Lounge On The Farm website.
