Vintage goes to London
Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway’s annual celebration of British cool moves to the Southbank Centre this year
The organisers of last year’s highly successful Vintage at Goodwood festival have announced that this year’s location for the festivities will be the Southbank Centre, London.
From 29th-31st July, the 21-acre site on the Thames, which includes The Royal Festival Hall and The Hayward Gallery, will be transformed into a vintage wonderland with the same exciting mix of clubs, bands, fashion dealers, catwalk shows, art, design and workshops seen at last year’s event on the Goodwood Estate. There’ll be some surprises too, not least of which is a flotilla of party boats on the river. Time to start digging out your glad rags and brushing up on your dance moves!
The Vintage festival is part of the Southbank Centre’s summer-long celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain, for which the centre was first built. From 3rd May-4th September, the site will come alive with pop-up structures, fairground rides, a museum and various exhibitions - not to mention a wide-ranging programme of music, dance and art. See more details in the May issue of Homes & Antiques.
