THE GREAT GATSBY FAIR – DE LA WARR PARADE, BEXHILL SEAFRONT, BEXHILL-ON-SEA, EAST SUSSEX TN40 1DP
Following the success of last year’s event, we’re delighted to have been invited back to curate the Pop Up Vintage Village at the Great Gatsby Fair for the second year running. Our stalls will be located right on the seafront at Bexhill-On-Sea, on the weekend of Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July 2019.
This fabulous event, organised by Bentley Fairs, stretches along the Promenade Seafront to the Metropole Lawns beside the De La Warr Pavilion, a stunning example of 1930s Art Deco architecture and will be one of the biggest events of the year on the South Coast!
Our Pop Up Vintage stalls will be lined up along the East Parade facing the sea, near the Bexhill Sailing Club, selling all things vintage from the 1900s-1980s including women’s fashion & menswear, vintage jewellery and accessories, mid-century homeware, furnishings, maps & posters plus all things retro for the home! The event is free for the public and opens from 10am-6pm on Saturday 20th & 10am-5pm on Sunday 21st July.
A fun weekend on the coast is planned with vintage shopping, vintage tea tent, classic cars & bikes, live music, bands, entertainers and for the children there’s funfair rides and more! Food vendors will be set up offering delicious hot & cold food, with vegetarian & vegan options plus bars selling cocktails, mocktails, juice bars, specialty ciders and locally brewed beers.
