Vintage at Southbank - come down and enjoy the free bits!
Wayne Hemmingway’s vintage festival is coming to London next weekend – Vintage at the Southbank Centre is promising to be a festival jam-packed of vintage-inspired events from the Twenties to the Eighties (think fashion shows, music clubs, performances and much more). Tickets are £60 per day but fear not if your budget doesn’t stretch to this, come down anyways as there is plenty of free stuff going on that you can’t miss out on.
The spaces around, in between and in some cases on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Purcell Rooms and The British Film Institute will be set dressed and feature the enormous Vintage Marketplace (a gathering of the finest purveyors of vintage clothes, accessories, mid century modern homewares, records and music memorabilia and up-cycled ephemera), a vintage funfair, food market, hair and beauty parlours, creative workshops, tea parties and themed bars and restaurants.
There are all the wonderful 60th Anniversary of the Festival of Britain attractions to enjoy including a beach along the embankment, the Eden rooftop gardens, The Museum of 51 and art installations a go go. Vintage favourites such as The Chap Olympiad and the best in show parades will be there for everyone to enjoy.
The Vintage Guide will also be there doing free tours about The Festival of Britain so even if you’re giving the main event a pass, head down to the Southbank, enjoy the freebies and come and see us!
