20s - The Vintage Guide To London
Celebrate the New Year with exclusive access to the Southbank Centre and a vintage-inspired extravaganza of live music, DJs, dance tuition, dining, period cocktails and fireworks.
Tour guide Barrie of Back In The Days Walks worked in Brixton for over twenty five years so he’s perfectly suited to take you around Brixton for a special vintage walk of a part of London that surprisingly still has an outdated reputation as an area to avoid.
Ever wanted to know why George ‘Beau’ Brummell became so famous? Or where Mr Fish popularised the kipper tie? Or the sartorial connection between Jan 30th 1969 and Feb 14 1969? Or why St James’s became associated with gentlemen’s outfitters in the first place? Or how the election of a Labour Government in 1945 lead to Teddy Boys? Or how the Marshall Street baths played a significant role in how today’s high street looks?
