Preview: Saturday 27th July in The Old Hippodrome

As always before our events we present to you a little teaser of what you can expect at The Secret Vintage Fair this Saturday at The Old Hippodrome on the High Street!

As a building of over 100 years old it is filled with delightful nooks and crannys for vintage intrigue.  We have the use of the entire venue from the main stage where our music acts will perform, to the upper dress circle (as it was previously called when it was a theatre) to The Gods above the stage.
LIQUID NIGHTCLUB as it used to be!
We have a uniquely customised selection of vintage, craft and handmade sellers which fit with our event, the venue and the location.  And as always we only ever provide you with the finest purveyors of excellence, and many new ones this time too!  Don't forget to look out for exclusive special offers from our traders on the day too!)

                                                        ....& REFRESHMENTS!
We have not one but TWO tea rooms for you to enjoy- all served with a traditional vintage twist, plus Liquid will have a small bar open on the day should your require something a bit stronger! (ID may be required if you look under age!)

As with all our fairs we are more than just a retail experience; we want to give you a full vintage day out, so we have sourced some of the best vintage performers around to delight you.  From the local surf band The Q-Trons, to the sultry tones of soul trio The Amorelles, plus our regular vintage DJ Sukie, soloist Katie Peacock, Soulful Duo Megan Burrows with Jonathan Coy, and The Hat Check fresh from their stint at the Maverick Festival, and before they head off to Camp Bestival, The Ragged String Band!  The day will be packed with music on the main stage as well as upstairs in The Gods. In addition to musicians we will have some close up magic from some fantatsic local conjurers with just a hint of the steampunk.

With goody bags for the first 25 people through the door - we're starting the day as we mean to go on! You can also win one of the many raffle prizes on offer (only £1 pound a strip) including a day's hire with The Little Beach Hut Company, a tour and wine tasting for 4 at Dedham Vale Vineyard and many more offerings from our traders. 

With a large hair and beauty parlour you can make sure you are looking your vintage best for the day (and night) ahead. 

We have commissioned a film crew from Colbridge Videography to film a promotional video for The Secret Vintage Fair so please be aware there will be filming on the day... you may want to dress to impress!  PLUS we are giving one lucky person the chance to win our best vintage dressed competition, so make sure you don your vintage finery, get those locks coiffed and get spotted by one of vintage judges.  The winner will get one of our VIP goody bags.

The fair takes place on Saturday 27th July, 11:00 - 16.30. Entrance is only £3.00 (plus a discount voucher is available from The Gazette), and accompanied children under 10 get in free.  .
